“Ánima”, la novela zombie de Antonio Ortuño

Por Katia Rodríguez

Una charla amena, divertida y honesta fue lo que los asistentes pudieron disfrutar en la presentación de Ánima, la más reciente novela del escritor y periodista Antonio Ortuño, en la XXXIII Feria Internacional del Libro del Palacio de Minería.

Luis Muñoz Oliveira, escritor de la novela Bloody Mary y uno de los presentadores aquél jueves en el recinto de Tacuba, definió la novela de su colega y amigo “como una crítica al mundillo del cine, como una crítica al mundillo de la literatura, una gran crítica reiterativa a las becas estatales, y a todos los personajes que pueblan ese mundo que está lleno de periodistas, de agentes, de actores, de directores, de productores, de guionistas… todos en la novela son completamente ambiciosos, capaces de traicionar cualquier amistad con tal de ganarse un premio o el presupuesto para hacer una película o al menos para desarrollar un guión.”

De igual manera, para José Soto Galindo, periodista y colaborador de la revista Sensational ID, “Ánima es una novela que aspira a lo universal desde lo local. A partir de personajes bien reales, en una ciudad bien real, Ortuño ha construido una historia del fracaso y la obstinación, de la terquedad de construir desde la periferia una fascinación por la amistad y la posibilidad de elegir a la familia. Una historia de la lealtad.” Por ello, para los presentadores, Ánima es el libro más autobiográfico que ha escrito el autor: “Es la novela más divertida, la más sincera y la más terrenal… la novela más zombie de Antonio”, en palabras de Soto Galindo.

La muerte de Ringo Mora, amigo cercano de Ortuño, fue la causa por la cual Ánima fue escrita. A según del también bloguero Soto Galindo, la novela “es de principio a fin una reverencia a la generosidad de Rigo, a la obsesión por el cine y la animación, a las ganas de nadar contracorriente”.

Presente en el recinto, Antonio Ortuño contó de viva voz el proceso de escritura de su obra, la cual duró 726 días, desde el 6 de mayo de 2009 al 1 de mayo de 2011. Fiel a su costumbre, no hizo mucho caso a los cambios que propusieron las personas que leyeron el manuscrito en sus distintas etapas. A pesar de haber sido elegido por la revista británica Granta como uno de los mejores escritores jóvenes de Iberoamérica y por la revista GQ en 2010 como Escritor del año, Ánima por poco no fue publicada.

Así lo narró el autor al auditorio el pasado jueves en Minería: “una persona que era vital para el trato de edición dijo que le pareció arriesgado y abstracto. Otra casi igual de importante prestó oídos a un consejero idiota y decidió no leerlo. Alguien más se tomó la molestia de escribir un artículo para explicar detenidamente que había yo caído en desgracia y aprovechó para proponer que el lugar que se suponía que ocuparía en la literatura mexicana un servidor, se lo fuera apartando mejor a su amigo perengano que venía cerrando muy fuerte”. Fue entonces que la novela llegó a Mondadori donde fue publicada. Posteriormente, la novela sería incluida en buena parte de las listas de los mejores libros del año 2011.
