El desbarrancadero: caída libre hacia la eternidad

el desbarrancaderoHace años ya que este joven dejó a Bogotá perdida entre la muerte y la guerrilla, anclada en fetiches religiosos y saldos rojos cotidianos, niños con revólver y cuerpos con moscas, durmiendo para siempre en las aceras.

Este joven hoy regresa a su Colombia infernal, hecho ya un hombre maduro. En los momentos en que nace el siglo XXI, en una casa vieja que se extingue, el sida está matando al hermano mellizo del joven pródigo y éste regresa a sentarse a la orilla de la cama del moribundo, a (d)escribir la muerte: del hermano, de Colombia o de la raza humana, lo que ocurra primero.

Entre pláticas sobre la infancia compartida y el pasado que los separó, laten recuerdos comunes que ninguno de los dos está dispuesto a revivir. Entre suero intravenoso, el olor a viejo en las habitaciones y los sonidos del infierno llegando desde fuera, se espera el final; pero más que eso: se escribe.

Fernando Vallejo, escritor, biólogo, pensador y cineasta, construye desde mediados de los 80’s una obra que combina la autobiografía con el nihilismo más furioso y resignado. Es también una prosa incómoda, al mismo tiempo lírica y lépera, áspera y fluida, la prosa más identificable, menos cómoda y más agria de las literaturas hispánicas de hoy.

El desbarrancadero, ganadora del Rómulo Gallegos en 2003, hereda una tradición narrativa donde las casas familiares se desmoronan y los lazos entre hermanos se corroen en ácido, se escupe y se llora en la sangre y los padres. Comenzó en La Biblia, tal vez antes.

La exploraron Dostoievski, Steinbeck, Mahfuz, Tolstoi, Mann e incluso Mario Puzo, si ampliamos el término “familia”. Vallejo vuelve al mito de la familia desgajada y trae a Colombia a Cástor y Pollux, una vez que han caído en cuenta de que papá Zeus nunca estuvo ahí arriba.

Tal es la apuesta de Vallejo: un mundo (sea Bogotá, Londres o Islamabad) donde cayeron los Dioses y las morales, el desbarrancadero inevitable del nuevo siglo, en donde la civilización cae por su propio peso rumbo al sitio designado donde nos está esperando la Muerte, el vacío inconmensurable, el despeñadero de la eternidad.
