By Javier Marías

Una novela hipnótica sobre el secreto y su conveniencia posible, sobre el matrimonio, el asesinato y los angeles instigación, sobre los angeles sospecha, el hablar y el callar y l. a. persuasión: sobre los corazones tan blancos que poco a poco se van tiñendo y acaban siendo lo que nunca quisieron ser.
«No he querido saber, pero he sabido que una de las niñas, cuando ya no period niña y no hacía mucho que había regresado de su viaje de bodas, entró en el cuarto de baño, se puso frente al espejo, se abrió l. a. blusa, se quitó el sostén y se buscó el corazón con los angeles punta de l. a. pistola...»
Este es el ya legendario comienzo de un clásico contemporáneo, Corazón tan blanco, cuyo protagonista y narrador, Juan Ranz, prefiere siempre no saber, consciente de lo peligroso que resulta escuchar: los oídos no tienen párpados, y lo que les llega ya no se olvida.
Traductor e intérprete de profesión, es él ahora el recién casado, y en su propio viaje de novios, en los angeles Habana, asomado al balcón, es confundido por una desconocida que espera en l. a. calle, y sin querer escucha una conversación de inn. A partir de entonces «presentimientos de desastre» envolverán su matrimonio. Pero l. a. clave de ese malestar quizá esté en el pasado, pues su padre hubo de casarse tres veces para que él pudiera nacer.

Example text

There was a distant humming, a light, timid murmuring in the ranks of the sailors, like the vague, uneasy sensation which takes hold of spectators at a theatre when the sets are being changed. Now things were really different. Herculano and Sant'Ana were only pipsqueaks, ·poor wretches of sailors who could barely take twenty-five strokes of the cane; they were just big children! What everyone was waiting to see was Amaro, the famous and terrible Bom-Crioulo. " Bom-Crioulo pronounced these words in a resolute tone of voice, without a trace of uneasiness, his gaze boldly fixed on the 33 gold stripes of the captain's uniform.

Handkerchiefs waved at the corvette, which quickly fell behind, all sails billowing, slow and proud. And the liner disappeared like a shadow, and the corvette continued on in her defeat, alone in the emptiness of the sea, mournful and desolate. The sailors had scattered about on the 1 Pao de Ac;:ucar, Sugar Loaf Mountain, is a large granite rock, some 375 metres high, now provided with a cable-car for ascent, situated at the entrance to Guanabara Bay. 2 This street, which still exists in part, begins behind 15th of November Square (prac;:a 15 de novembro) and takes its name from the old Mercy or Charity Hospital (Santa Casa de Miseric6rdia) on Mercy Square (largo da Miseric6rdia).

Above, in the dome of the great half-sphere of the sky, ablaze with noonday light, the blue, always the clear blue, the pure blue, the sweet, transparent, infinite, mysterious blue. The corvette must have been quite near land, because on the horizon there passed the triangular sail of a jangada, 1 tiny and rapid. Behind, on the starboard side, the dark bulk of a huge, doublechimneyed steamship was gaining on them also. Bom-Crioulo and Aleixo went on with their conversation, sitting side by side in the shadow of the jib sail, indifferent to the laughter and merriment of the other sailors, whose attention was being drawn now to the steamship.
