By Antonio Martínez Sarrión

La observación política más mordaz da paso al más sentido homenaje poético, relevado a su vez por pensamientos atribulados o notas eruditas, antesala de una furiosa denuncia... Apuntes en los que el autor salta con overall naturalidad de lo own a lo social, de l. a. reflexión a los angeles ocurrencia, de las filias a las fobias políticas y literarias, en lo que constituye un libre pero completo landscape de l. a. sociedad real. stories pinceladas configuran un fresco vibrante gracias a ese estilo directo, incisivo y mordaz, alejado de toda complacencia, que es marca de su autor y con el que éste desvela sus temores y esperanzas respecto a un futuro incierto, su disidencia ante l. a. superficialidad de las nuevas tecnologías, l. a. injusticia de los angeles Justicia, los absurdos a que dan lugar las luchas de poder... y frente a ello, el refugio que suponen los angeles poesía y las artes, insumisas por no atenerse a l. a. moda. Tras Cargar l. a. suerte y Esquirlas, y respaldado por una vasta cultura hecha de múltiples lecturas y permanente atención a los angeles actualidad, Antonio Martínez Sarrión nos trae este tercer volumen de diarios que, como toda visión crítica e independiente de lo que nos rodea, no dejará a nadie indiferente.
