Mabel Cuesta: Escribir en español en tierra ajena

inscrita-bajo-sospecha_eb(Mex)El volumen de la narradora cubana, editado por Betania, fue presentado en el marco de la XXXII Feria Internacional del Libro del Palacio de Minería. Reúne 14 cuentos protagonizados por una mujer sin nombre y evoca temas relacionados con la identidad en varias formas. “Es una paradoja: El interés (por la literatura hispana en EU) crece mientras los espacios se cierran”, afirma la autora.

Hay migraciones invisibles que pasan desapercibidas a los ojos de la aduana y de las patrullas fronterizas. Más lentas, acaso más profundas. Son las lenguas, las narrativas, las formas de expresión y las literaturas que poco a poco se apropian por derecho propio de las tierras de nadie, de los barrios migrantes dentro de las grandes ciudades americanas y de los desiertos sembrados de esperanzas.

En el aniversario del día en que cruzó la frontera mexicana hacia Estados Unidos, la escritora cubana Mabel Cuesta presentó su volumen de cuentos más reciente, Inscrita Bajo Sospecha, como parte del ciclo de narradoras y poetas hispanoamericanas en el marco de la XXXII Feria Internacional del Libro del Palacio de Minería.

Hoy, Mabel Cuesta vive, estudia, escribe y enseña literatura en Nueva York, una de las ciudades norteamericanas con un importante flujo de migración hispana. Elige, a toda costa, seguir escribiendo en español, y hoy, seguir presentando y difundiendo su obra en la capital mexicana. “Lo hago”, dice, “Porque esta es una de las grandes plazas, de los nervios centrales de la literatura hispanoamericana, como Buenos Aires. Ojalá, ojalá todo lo que escribo pudiera presentarse aquí en México”, expresa Cuesta ante su público, acompañada de un par de narradoras, compatriotas suyas, que recorrieron caminos similares: Elena Martínez y Odette Alonso.

Inscrita Bajo Sospecha es la placa que agrupa a catorce relatos que, de alguna forma, comparten una protagonista: Una mujer sin nombre, tal vez la misma, que de un cuento a otro se desplaza por espacios geográficos, anímicos, culturales y emocionales. Alrededor, un desfile de personajes, mujeres todas que parecieran extensiones, reflejos, alter egos ó inquietudes y temores encarnados de su autora.

“La búsqueda de identidad” refiere Odette Alonso, “es el hilo común del libro”. Pero identidad toma aquí muchas formas, una por cuento: Identidad de género, identidad individual, identidad como migrante en un país extraño, identidad como expulsada de la propia patria. “Dejar el país siempre es difícil, no importa que sea un país convulso. Siempre es difícil”. Inscrita Bajo Sospecha es, de varias formas, un testimonio íntimo de esa lejanía.

La lengua propia en tierra ajena: Escribir en español como migrante.

Un rumor corre por la crítica literaria norteamericana: La literatura hispanoamericana, se dice, está generando un interés creciente. Nuevas traducciones, nuevos nombres en las estanterías. “Esto es cierto”, afirman en entrevista Elena Martínez y la autora, Mabel Cuesta. “Pero es cierta también una paradoja: El interés crece y los espacios se cierran”. Ambas narradoras lamentan la desaparición, en Nueva York, de librerías y espacios que solían dedicarse a vender literatura en español, a organizar presentaciones y a estimular la difusión de escritores hispanos, como las librerías Lectorum y Macondo. “Hoy”, refiere Cuesta, “la única gran opción para la literatura en español en EU es la Feria de Miami.” Inscrita Bajo Sospecha fue presentado precisamente en Miami hace apenas unas semanas.
