La Tijuana de Crosthwaite

batio-qe-es-escritor-y-escr(Mex)El narcotráfico es uno de los problemas que más ha permeado a la sociedad mexicana, es un problema real, una situación que llega hasta lo más profundo de una sociedad que se caracteriza (una constante últimamente por parte de las autoridades) por el crimen y el olvido.

Luis Humberto Crosthwaite es uno de los pocos escritores que tratan de esta manera una situación tan delicada, como puede ser el narcotráfico y todas las secuelas en una población. Crosthwaite logra plasmar en el papel los sentimientos, emociones, inquietudes y hasta trastornos que sufren y padecen cada uno de los personajes a lo largo de su andar.

Tijuana: crimen y olvido es el título de su novela, publicada apenas en el mes de noviembre del año pasado. En ella cuenta la historia, aún no sé si verdadera, de Magda Gilbert y Juan Antonio Mendívil: dos periodistas, una mexicana y un estadounidense, respectivamente.

A lo largo de la historia, Luis Humberto habla de cada uno de los personajes y su historia. Para ello, realiza, según argumenta en el prefacio y epílogo,  toda una investigación sobre cada uno de ellos. Investigación realizada en Estados Unidos y México, específicamente Tijuana.

Refleja una ciudad lastimada, llena de rencor hacia las autoridades por su ineficaz  respuesta, una población atestada de miedo, pero que tiene que seguir con su día a día para poder sobrevivir.

Es verdad, existen muchos estudios por parte de académicos y periodistas sobre el impacto de este problema en la sociedad, pero existen muy pocos textos, y menos literarios, que hablen del sufrimiento que padecen los periodistas cuando lo único que hacen es ejercer su profesión. Luis Humberto acierta al exponer una situación que lacera, directa o indirectamente, a todos y cada uno de los integrantes de un país.

Todos los sectores tienen una opinión sobre el narcotráfico y en Tijuana: crimen y olvido, se resalta esto. La opinión de las autoridades ante los asesinatos y los secuestros a plena luz del día; la opinión de los medios de comunicación, en especial los periódicos de la ciudad, sobre los acontecimientos cotidianos, y sus repercusiones por ello; así mismo la opinión y respuesta de la sociedad en general ante tal embate.

Luis Humberto Crosthwaite, nacido en Tijuana en el año de 1962, es autor de varias novelas y libros de relatos entre los que destaca Marcela y el rey al fin juntos, El gran preténder, Instrucciones para cruzar la frontera y, en Tusquets Editores, Estrella de la Calle Sexta (Andanzas, 2000), Aparte de mí este cáliz (Andanzas, 2009) e Idos de la mente (Fábula, 2010). Reside en la esquina más septentrional de la frontera de México con Estados Unidos.
