Una belleza vulgar
Damián Tabarovsky

NOVEL | 2011 | 125 pages

A leaf falls off a tree on a street in Buenos Aires. As it falls, it tells the stories of a building’s inhabitants. Their expectations, their reality, their dreams, their wishes… painting a multifaceted portrait of the ways of life in our times.

Flaubert’s wish come true: a novel without a plot. But one that is, nonetheless, perfectly argued. A narrative about the disappearance of any possible center of gravity: light stories, transparent and innocuous, although secretly carrying their own special weight. In between fate and the law of gravity.

We have to defend this kind of literature… if we want to avoid letting those who praise emptiness camp out at their whim.

Damián Tabarovsky’s novel generates an effect that is very similar to that of a magnifying glass that, by focusing the path of what will be a definitive hit, projects a politically uncomfortable radicality in a coming and going of fragmented scenes, with a crazy syntax that establishes extreme tension.

Una belleza vulgar is not vulgar at all but very sophisticated; it has a thesis and as such, it is a highly unusual novel.
— Gonzalo Garrido, Blog Literatura Basura
El amo bueno is the triumph of writing, of a writing free from any corset of genre, one that fluctuates with absolute freedom between the narrative form, sometimes even bordering in the anecdotal, and the essay or philosophical treaty, without respite. It is an enormous gift for the most restless of readers.
