> Un mal sans remède, par Antonio Caballero
A travers le personnage du poète manqué Ignacio Escobar, Un mal sans remède dresse le portrait acide de la société colombienne.
Ignacio Escobar est poète. Un poète raté doublé d'un roi de la glande! Immature, narcissique, éternel parasite, ce Colombien rêve de devenir le Rimbaud de l'Amérique latine, sans avoir à se lever de son lit si possible. Quand il sort de sa torpeur, il écume les bars de Bogota et va rançonner sa mère, qui ne cesse de le supplier de trouver une épouse. Mais il préfère somnoler, écrire des sonnets qui ne sont pas des sommets et, surtout, ne pas faire la révolution comme ses copains trotskistes. A travers le portrait de ce fils de la bourgeoisie colombienne, c'est la jeunesse décadente et désoeuvrée de son pays que fustige le journaliste Antonio Caballero. Cocasse et acide. --L'Express
