Siquiera tenemos las palabras es un alegato, inspirado en Joseph Brodsky, para recordar el papel crucial de la literatura, la importancia de los libros y la necesidad (existencial) de su masificaci n. ==================================================================================================== "Literature will not be able to save us, but it is one of our defenses; a refuge, a solace and a form of resistance". Alejandro Gaviria is a hardened reader and a budding bibliophile, he searches old bookstores for first editions that keep surprises, mysteries and secrets among their pages. In this book about books he reflects, from his messy readings, on current issues that were treated before, not to say through clairvoyance, by some of his favorite short story and novel writers. He writes about how complex it is to achieve social change, the impossibility of absolute happiness, the corruption of political language, the association between fanaticism and paranoia, the tensions between human rights and environmental sustainability, among other issues. Siquiera tenemos las palabras, inspired by Joseph Brodsky, is a plea to remember "the crucial role of literature, the importance of books and the (existential) need for their massification".
