Summary

Wasabi explora las neurosis que afectan al proceso creativo y cómo el amor por la literatura y la vida pueden llegar a fusionarse peligrosamente.

Wasabi cuenta las peripecias de un escritor argentino en pleno bloqueo creativo durante una residencia en Francia. Narcoléptico y adicto a una solución homeopática para controlar un quiste que le ha aparecido en la nuca, la vida del protagonista se despedaza poco a poco: su mujer se cansa de Francia y huye a Londres, donde comparte piso con otras siete personas; su editor francés resulta ser un mamarracho, un profesional de la impostura; atacado por una obsesión criminal, el escritor se ha obcecado con asesinar al artista Pierre Klossowski; y, además, su quiste no para de crecer. Wasabi es una narración alucinógena que confunde los límites entre literatura y vida y en la que sucesos plagados de un patetismo kafkiano deforman la vida del protagonista.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

Wasabi explores the neuroses that affect the creative process and how the love for literature and life can dangerously merge.
 
Wasabi tells the adventures of an Argentine writer going through a creative block during a residency in France. Narcoleptic and addicted to a homeopathic solution that keeps a cyst that has appeared on his neck under control, the protagonist’s life begins to fall apart little by little: his wife gets tired of France and flees to London, where she shares an apartment with seven other people; his French publisher turns out to be a complete fraud, a professional impostor; struck by a criminal obsession, the writer becomes obsessed with murdering artist Pierre Klossowski; and, on top of it all, his cyst does not stop growing. Wasabi is a hallucinogenic narration that blurs the boundaries between literature and life, and one in which events plagued by a Kafkaesque misery deform the protagonist’s life.
