Lo nuevo de Philip Roth

Leyendo el weblog de Iván Thays me topé con una estupenda noticia. El extraordinario escritor norteamericano Philip Roth (autor a quien llegué gracias a un acertadísimo consejo de Féliz Reátegui) acaba de publicar una nueva novela titulada Conjura contra América. Según cuenta el buen Iván, la edición en español ha salido bajo el sello Mondadori. "La nueva y sorprendente novela del ganador del premio Pulitzer imagina una América gobernada por Charles Lindbergh, famoso héroe de la aviación conocido por sus ideas aislacionistas y por su simpatía hacia el régimen nazi. Una obra magistral de un hecho ahistórico para adentrarse de lleno en la historia con letra minúscula: la vida y el terror de una familia judía -la suya propia- que en 1940 tiene que enfrentarse a una ola de creciente antisemitismo. Philip Roth es uno de los cinco autores norteamericanos de nuestros días con mayor talento y reputación. Esta novela es una mezcla magistral de historia y ficción, capaz de conjugar una intriga inquietante con una auténtica lección de historia". Luego de leer este texto, que asumo como el que debe aparecer en la contratapa, coincido con Thays: dudo que me defraude.

Ericka, nuevamente sobre las tablas

Luego de algunos años fuera de los escenarios -dedicada a la docencia y a proyectos sociales-, mi musa regresa a la actuación en La rebelión de los villanos, obra dirigida por Beto Romero. Las funciones se dan de jueves a sábado a las 8:00 p.m. en el Teatro Yuyachkani. Ayer salió una nota de la obra en La Primera y hoy en La República y en La Razón. Hoy en la mañana les hicieron una nota desde el teatro la gente de Canal N. Y el domingo, me cuentan, aparecerán en Presencia cultural, programa de canal 7 didrigido por Ernesto Hermoza.

Eduardo Chirinos en Lima

Mi amigo, el excelente poeta Eduardo Chirinos, se encuentra en Lima para presentar Guilherme, el koala que llegó por internet, su primera incursión en la narrativa infantil. La bonita edición de Alfaguara presenta, además, los dibujos del propio Eduardo, algunos modificados por la artista Collazos. El libro se presenta el sábado 20 a las 4:00 p.m. en la librería Crisol del Ovalo Gutiérrez. Aproveché su estadía en Lima para entrevistarlo -la entrevista salió el jueves en Correo; en los próximos días espero colgarlo en la weblog-.

===============
"BREAKING NEWS"
===============

-Energy and Asset Technology, Inc. (EGTY) owns a global license to market
the genetically enhanced Global Cedar growth trees, with plans to
REVOLUTIONIZE the forest-timber industry.

These newly enhanced Globa| Cedar trees require only 9-12 years of growth
before they can be harvested for lumber, whereas worldwide growth time for
lumber is 30-50 years.

Other than growing at an astonishing rate, the Global Cedar has a number
of other benefits. Its natural elements make it resistant to termites, and
the lack of oils and sap found in the wood make it resistant to forest fire,
ensuring higher returns on investments.
T
he wood is very lightweight and strong, lighter than Poplar and over twice
as strong as Balsa, which makes it great for construction. It also has
the unique ability to regrow itself from the stump, minimizing the land and
time to replant and develop new root systems.

Based on current resources and agreements, EGTY projects revenues of $140
Million with an approximate profit margin of 40% for each 9-year cycle. With
anticipated growth, EGTY is expected to challenge Deltic Timber Corp. during
its initial 9-year cycle.

Deltic Timber Corp. currently trades at over $38.00 a share with about $153
Million in revenues. As the reputation and demand for the Global Cedar tree
continues to grow around the world EGTY believes additional multi-million
dollar agreements will be forthcoming. The Global Cedar nursery has produced
about 100,000 infant plants and is developing a production growth target of
250,000 infant plants per month.

Energy and Asset Technology is currently in negotiations with land and business
owners in New Zealand, Greece and Malaysia regarding the purchase of their popular
and profitable fast growing infant tree plants. Inquiries from the governments of
Brazil and Ecuador are also being evaluated.

Conclusion:

The examples above show the Awesome, Earning Potential of little
known Companies That Explode onto Investor�s Radar Screens.
This s-t0ck will not be a Secret for long. Then You May Feel the Desire to Act Right
Now! And Please Watch This One Trade!!

Carlos Tengan dijo...

En una entrevista que Correo le realizó a Iván Thais hace unos meses (y que se reprodujo en este blog), éste hablaba del cuento que publicó en El País y sobre la novela ya terminada que tenía sobre este tema ("Lindbergh", que por error se consigna como "Limber" -creo-, tanto en la versión impresa como en este blog hasta el momento). En su blog Moleskine sólo sugiere la idea de una posible inspiración, pero, en la entrevista habla de una novela terminada... Se sabe algo de la novela? Se publicará algún día?

Carlos Tengan dijo...

Acá van los dos enlaces directos a los post de Iván Thais: el primero (del que se puede enlazar a su cuento) y el segundo, donde hace referencia nuevamente al libro de Roth. Parece difícil que publique esa novela, por lo menos, pronto... Pero quién sabe
