En fin. Y nada como que alguien quiera guardar un secreto para que uno, de inmediato, quiera a su vez averiguarlo. Fue esta resma de papel lo que me puso sobre aviso. Era una resma gruesa, gorda como un ladrillo, y nadie que no escriba mucho compra el papel por tacos de quinientas hojas.

Writing[ edit ] Abad started his literary career at a very young age. He was just 12 years old when he wrote his first short stories and poetry works. Stones of Silence , a short story about a miner trapped deep underground. While still in Italy, he published his first book, Malos Pensamientos but it was only upon returning to Colombia in , that Abad become a full-time writer.
Abad forms part of a new generation of authors that emerges in Colombia beyond magical realism. The richness, plot, irony, permanent enticement of the reader, the intensity of his stories, as well as the seriousness of the social, historical, and human research behind his confessional narrative, stand Abad as a brilliant recreator of the contemporary Colombian society through literature.
Asuntos de un Hidalgo Disoluto ; Eng. Narrated by a character who is a year-old Colombian millionaire, this work is a Colombian version of the Spanish picaresque novel. Writing at the end of his life, the narrator looks back on his life of debauchery — and the failure of his high pretensions — through reminiscences to his younger mute secretary and lover, Cunegunda Bonaventura. The narrator often gives two versions of a memory: first what he wishes had happened and then what really happened.
Tratado de Culinaria para Mujeres Tristes ; t: Recipes for Sad Women is a book of uncertain literary genre that combines a collection of false recipes coelacanth, dinosaur, or mammoth meat with real recipes. The book is neither a novel nor a collection of recipes, but rather a collection of sensitive short reflections about unhappiness. With a love for droll turns of phrase, Abad blends melancholy with even-seasoned irony in well-composed sentences.
As in the Decameron , Susana and Rodrigo lock themselves up in the hills, far away from the city pestilence, and tell each other stories that would save them from death. It alludes to role models, such as the storytellers Kafka or Pavese who were angst ridden for life, and tells of a writer, Bernardo Davanzati, who tosses his works directly into the garbage can. His neighbour finds the texts and over time turns into an assiduous and diligent reader, to whom the many woes of being a writer are revealed.
The act of writing and the role of the reader in literature are topics which are highlighted time and again. Palabras sueltas ; t. Oriente Empieza en El Cairo ; t. Angosta Echoes of Hyperrealism rather than Magic Realism are clearly present in this award-winning novel. In a fantastical parable of Colombian society, Abad describes a fictitious city whose population has been divided into three different castes living in separate sectors.
Against the backdrop of the violent perpetuation of this system, a kaleidoscope of eccentrics from the ruling class is depicted. Abad provides us with one of the very best novels on the second wave of violence during the twentieth century in Colombia. El Olvido que Seremos ; t. Oblivion: A Memoir. It took Abad nearly 20 years to get the courage to write this book about his father, his life and the circumstances of his murder by Colombian paramilitaries.
Las Formas de la Pereza y Otros Ensayos ; t. The Forms of Laziness and Other Essays is a book about the origin and manifestations of laziness. Columnist[ edit ] Abad started to write in Newspapers and Magazines since he was in school and later when he was in college.
