Cuando leas esta carta, yo habré muerto by Agustín García Simón

By Agustín García Simón

Cuentos de l. a. memoria recobrada. De los años medios. De esa Castilla desnuda y austera, donde vida y muerte componen los angeles línea de un horizonte marcado por el tiempo y el destino.
Los doce relatos de Cuando leas esta carta, yo habré muerto son un canto a l. a. prosa verdadera; a los angeles palabra como andamiaje del arte; a los angeles mágica capacidad de fabular desde el acontecer cotidiano. El retrato preciso, inquietante y memorable, de un mundo poblado de personajes dolientes, anónimos y, por ello, descarnadamente cercanos. Asombrosamente reales.
«Algo de antigüedad y ruina, de esplendor y decadencia, overdue en las ficciones de Agustín García Simón, una mirada que recompone el pasado desde l. a. actualidad degradada de su espejo, un tiempo hostil que nutre l. a. conciencia de las pérdidas y las desapariciones, entre el sufrimiento y l. a. melancolía.»
Luis Mateo Díez
