“El futuro no será de nadie”, De la Borbolla

Una historia de amor, como tantas que día a día inician y culminan bajo el amparo de la Ciudad de México, protagonizada por un trío de personajes que encarnan los temores, la ideología e incluso los estereotipos que prevalecen en nuestra sociedad, es lo que el lector descubre al adentrarse en las páginas de El futuro no será de nadie de Óscar de la Borbolla, quien presentó este trabajo en compañía del escritor José Luis Trueba Lara en la XXXIII Feria Internacional del Libro del Palacio de Minería.

En su turno, Trueba comentó que en la obra de Óscar de la Borbolla pareciera haber cierto dejo de inconformidad o desesperanza, siendo el mayor exponente de estas características Filosofía para inconformes, obra que también representa una ruptura en la obra del autor quien, desde entonces, no había producido novelas.

De la Borbolla atribuye el hecho a cierta insatisfacción surgida después de su última novela, La vida de un muerto, sin embargo esta ha desaparecido con el paso del tiempo. El resultado es El futuro no será de nadie, cuyo resultado, de acuerdo con el propio autor, pareciera un tanto irónico, pues al querer relatar “el amor feliz” se ha encontrado con que a muchos de sus lectores la publicación les ha causado cierta depresión.

Aclaró que durante la escritura de este volumen, que demoró entre seis y siete años, se enfrentó a la disyuntiva de contar “el amor feliz” sin que esto pareciera cursi o inverosímil, por lo cual decidió realizar una suerte de juego entre el tiempo y espacio donde se desarrolla este relato de amor, buscando con ello “un efecto de plenitud del tiempo”.

Afirmó que el incentivo para crear esta obra surgió de su observación de la perdida de los ideales de la modernidad por parte de la sociedad que, desde su punto de vista, ha dejado de buscar la “redención” a través de disciplinas como al arte o la ciencia y actualmente se encuentra “estancada en el presente, dando vueltas sin ir a ningún lado”.

Esta situación es lo que puede verse plasmado en sus personajes: Lola, una pintora que representa el sector artístico de la sociedad; Pablo, representante de la faceta científica; y Nadia, quien encarna la parte empresarial de la sociedad mexicana.

En el relato todos ellos asumen la situación actual del país como una especie de coartada. Para estos tres personajes, en los que fácilmente cualquier lector pudiera reconocerse, el país se convierte en la excusa perfecta para mantenerse inmóviles en la posición que cada cual ocupa.

Con ello se da paso a un sentimiento de frustración, sentimiento que los empuja al deseo de encontrar sentido a la vida, buscado en sus actividades diarias o en el propio amor, sentimiento que —para De la Borbolla—, en la “vida real”, dista mucho de ser el sentimiento idílico que se relata en “las novelas rosa.”

Para el escritor este sentimiento es momentáneo, por ello El futuro no será de nadie busca relatar la historia de amor entre dos personas con sus encuentros, desencuentros y múltiples dificultades hasta llegar a su ocaso, pues el amor es como una “curva de Gauss”: tiene un inicio —casi imperceptible—, un punto cumbre y un prologado descenso que no se sabe bien en qué momento termina.
