Dogul This book is also an homage to modernism ala Bernhard but also Joyce with the action saovador place over the space of two hours in an evening as the two get drunk and try to relive their earlier life. Sadly, very few people in El Salvador have read Bernhard, and fewer still have a sense of humor. An incessant rant by a character named Edgardo Vega directed to, I suppose, anybody who might be listening, but in this case even more pointedly at the benrhard Moya himself as receptor.

Literatura Random House, , pp. Publication Date: September 25, List Price: Selected by Babelia among the best books of the last 25 years. It is written in a single paragraph and alive with a fury as astringent as the wrath of Thomas Bernhard. The result is an extraordinarily incisive and scathing novel, a settling of accounts, and a fierce criticism of his country; a work for which he received death threats that forced him into exile.
For Vega, returning to his native country means having to face a despicable, repulsive, and ignorant country, a place that gives him great anxiety and nausea. He confides all of this to Moya, an old classmate, and is offered to the reader in the form of a torrential monologue in which Vega attacks everything and everyone, in a fierce and ruthless criticism from which not even his family is excluded.
A parody of certain works by Bernhard, and the kind of book that makes you laugh out loud. Ha sido traducido a una docena de idiomas. Actualmente es profesor en la Universidad de Iowa. Y lo mezcla con dosis de un humor inusual.

El Asco. Thomas Bernhard en San Salvador, de Horacio Castellanos Moya
Ses attaques se concentrent sur deux plans. Para N. En sus novelas las criticas y los ataques a objetos son bien precisos. En estas dos novelas como en muchos textos satiricos se observa la existencia de un distandamiento narrativo entre el narrador, lo narrado y el lector.

En La diabla en el espejo la narradora monologa frente a un auditor rnudo igualmente inscrito en la historia. En la novela El asco Horacio Castellanos Moya ataca y critica violentamente la sociedad salvadorena.
