“Apenas Marta”, de Lorea Canales

ApenasMarta_portada“Soy una persona que está harta de que le hablen como si fuera una imbécil, se lo digo a López-Dóriga y se lo digo a mi esposa; por eso agradezco que en esta novela se me trate como alguien inteligente”, declaró el escritor Jorge F. Hernández después de elogiar la técnica literaria, tan retadora y atrayente, empleada por Lorea Canales en su primera novela: Apenas Marta.

Dicho título, editado recientemente por el sello Plaza & Janés de Random House Mondadori, fue presentado la noche de ayer miércoles 28 de septiembre en las inmediaciones de la Casa Refugio Citlaltépetl en el corazón mismo de la colonia Hipódromo al poniente de la ciudad.

Además de Jorge F. Hernández, como padrinos de la recién publicada novela asistieron los destacados narradores Mario Bellatin y Jesús Silva Herzog Márquez quienes dedicaron unas palabras al respecto de la obra.

“Como muchas de las grandes obras, el trabajo realizado a partir de los muertos –en este caso el personaje de Martita– es el que va diseñando una realidad que casi nunca es lo que aparenta. Con un conocimiento sutil de un mundo que para otro autor resultaría impostado, Lorea Canales nos entrega una primera novela que entronca la narrativa mexicana actual con la gran literatura”, comentó el enigmático Mario Bellatin, quien no escatimó alabanzas para el debut de Canales como novelista.

El texto, pieza autobiográfica, narra la angustia de una joven veinteañera en búsqueda de identidad. Marta, la protagonista, tiene 26 años, goza de buena salud, mucho dinero y una figura envidiable. Nunca nada le ha faltado. Sin embargo, después de la prematura muerte de su madre y el repentino nuevo maridaje de su padre, Marta se ha convertido en la albacea de una abrumadora herencia, el conocimiento verdadero de los lazos que sostienen a su familia, una familia que resulta todo menos lo que se pensaba de ella.

Es así como la novela aborda las tensiones emocionales de una jovencita citadina de la clase alta mexicana, un ejemplo narrativo de poca frecuencia en el panorama local, recientemente volcado a la introspección de la barbarie tras tan contemporánea ola de violencia.

“Esta novela no la hice sola. La hice con mi familia, apoyándome en (la historia de) toda mi vida”, aseguró la abogada, periodista y narradora, quien a los quince años escribía ya sobre la obra de Balzac, memorizaba poemas de Baudelaire y se declaraba ferviente seguidora de la música punk. Así pues, Canales, tras ofrecer la lectura de un breve fragmento de su obra, exclamó sin tapujos: “es prácticamente como una día con mi familia”.

Lorea Canales, oriunda de la Ciudad de México pero radicada desde hace una década en Nueva York, estrena su pluma en el género de la ficción escrita de largo aliento, pues ha allanado camino ya como cuentista, traductora e incluso poeta. Sin embargo, el oficio narrativo que más ha ejercido es el del periodismo, colaborando con cierta frecuencia en publicaciones nacionales y extranjeras, tales como Día Siete, Travesías, Cambio, y The New York Times, donde llegó incluso a ser editora del servicio de noticias en español. Asimismo, colaboró con la elaboración del perfil del empresario regiomontano Lorenzo Zambrano para el libro Los amos de México, coordinado por el también periodista Jorge Zepeda Patterson.
