Listen to me. Manuel Vilas

La ironía como arma cargada de presente

Con Manolo Vilas me ha ocurrido lo mismo que con Javier Tomeo: los he conocido a ellos personalmente justo en el momento en que estaba leyendo su obra. Lo de Tomeo fue hace años, en Barcelona, junto a Marcos Ordóñez, Rosa Lasierra, Joan Ollé y María Guillem en un restaurante lleno de ostras. En lo de Vilas, el Gran Vilas, no ha habido ostras, pero las habrá en el futuro, estoy seguro.

Ayer fue la presentación en la librería Cálamo de su ultimo libro –“Listen to me”- editado por La Bella Varsovia, en un acto entrañable, arropado el basbastrense de origen por mucha gente que le lee y le admira, y en el que tuve el honor de participar leyendo alguno de sus textos junto a mi amigo Rafa Campos, en un mano a mano en el que nos lo pasamos francamente bien ambos y espero que la concurrencia en su conjunto.

“Lesten to me” es esencialmente una recopilación de textos escritos en el muro de Facebook de de Manolo Vilas desde 2008. Textos cortos, en los que reflexiona sobre literatura, y en especial sobre los escritores que más le gustan –Cernuda, Kafka, Fitgerald, etc-, y los músicos que más le han acompañado en sus días y sus noches: Bob Dylan, The Who, Lou Red, y otro largo etcétera. Esa naturaleza fragmentaria no impide que el libro tenga una curiosa y, tal vez, inesperada unidad de conjunto y que se lea de un modo fluído, rápido y placentero, con una frecuente sonrisa entre los labios. Encontramos a Manolo Vilas persona y Manolo Vilas, personaje, y leyendo sus reflexiones entendemos mejor otros escritos de naturaleza poética, y otros textos novelísticos. (Eso sí, que nadie se le ocurra preguntarle la diferencia o el parecido entre unos u otros, porque recibirá una sangrienta y dolorosa sosrpresa…).

Capítulo aparte merecen sus extraordinarios diálogos imaginarios entre Dios y Vilas, o Benedicto XVI y Rajoy, o entre otros personajes vivos o muertos, como el mismísimo Rey Juan Carlos, que, además de extraordinariamente graciosos, de un humor socarrón, ácido e inteligente, suponen un barrido por la actualidad más actual, valga la expresión.

En el cierre del acto habló Vilas sobre su relación con Facebook, del que hizo una defensa como extraordinario territorio para la creación literaria y, por extensión, para la comunicación.

En resumen: acto, libro, librería y amigos. Todo un placer.
