Desde 1998 hasta la fecha, el Premio Alfaguara de Novela ha convocado a la inspiración de diversos escritores de países de habla hispana, fomentando la creación literaria y a su vez, sirviendo como vehículo para dar a conocer su obra internacionalmente. Este certamen es considerado como uno de los más importantes dentro del círculo literario, cuando una obra resulta ganadora, de inmediato el escritor se convierte en foco de atención de los medios y su nombre adquiere legitimidad y prestigio.

El día de hoy a través de un comunicado a cargo de Manuel Vicent, escritor y presidente del jurado de esta edición, en la Sala de Actos del Grupo Santillana en Madrid, se reveló el autor ganador del Premio Alfaguara 2010.

El galardonado es el chileno Hernán Rivera Letelier, –quien en el 2001 fue nombrado “Caballero de la Orden de las Artes y las Letras”, por el Ministro de Cultura de Francia—con su obra “El arte de la resurrección”.

El premio consiste en un estímulo de 175 mil dólares, una escultura de Martín Chirino y la publicación de la novela por el sello Alfaguara.

 –El arte de la resurrección es “la historia de la segunda venida de Cristo, durante la primera mitad del siglo XX, a los perdidos territorios de las salitreras chilenas”. Se trata de una original novela, que mezcla la crónica histórica y social (muy cercana a la tragedia de Santa María de Iquique) con poderosos elementos del realismo mágico. Su fuerza está en sus personajes; sobre todo, en el Cristo que recuerda a otros de Valle Inclán, García Márquez o Vargas Llosa. Lo mejor es que la historia de Domingo Zárate se lee con la fascinación y la facilidad de las leyendas de la infancia-, comentó Vincent.

El jurado estuvo conformado por Soledad Puértolas, Gerardo Herrero, Juan Miguel Salvador, Juan Gabriel Vásquez, Juan González y Manuel Vicent, naturalmente. Tras haber recibido 539 originales provenientes en su mayoría de España, México y Argentina, el manuscrito de Rivera Letelier, bajo el seudónimo Manuel Madero, se colocó como la merecedora indiscutible.

«Ambientada en el desierto de Chile en las primeras décadas del siglo XX, la novela narra las andanzas de un iluminado, el Cristo de Elqui. El Jurado ha valorado el aliento y la fuerza narrativa de la novela, así como la creación de una geografía personal a través del humor, el surrealismo y la tragedia.» 

Rivera Letelier, nacido en Talca, Chile en 1950, se dijo sorprendido de la resolución del jurado: “Lo primero que se me vino a la mente fue que el Cristito empezó de nuevo con los milagros, porque es una novela sobre el Cristo de Elqui y el tipo ya está haciendo milagros de nuevo” aseguró divertido en una entrevista telefónica.

No es la primera vez que se le ha reconocido a través de certámenes literarios. Ha sido ganador en dos ocasiones del Consejo Nacional del Libro y la Lectura en 1994 por la novela “La reina Isabel cantaba rancheras” y en 1996 por “Himno del ángel parado en una pata”. Asimismo destacan entre sus obras: “Fatamorgana de amor con banda de música” (1998), “El fantasista” (2006), “Mi nombre es Malarrosa” (2008) y “La contadora de películas” (2009).

Hasta el momento han obtenido el Premio Alfaguara de Novela: Caracol Beach de Eliseo Alberto y Margarita, está linda la mar de Sergio Ramírez (ambos ganadores de la primera edición), Son de Mar de Manuel Vicent, Últimas noticias del paraíso de Clara Sánchez, La piel del cielo de Elena Poniatowska, El vuelo de la reina de Tomás Eloy Martínez, Diablo Guardián de Xavier Velasco, Delirio de Laura Restrepo, El turno del escriba de Graciela Montes y Ema Wolf, Abril rojo de Santiago Roncagliolo, Mira si yo te querré de Luis Leante, Chiquita de Antonio Orlando Rodríguez y El viajero del siglo de Andrés Neuman.
