As Octavio Paz says in his introduction, "in all of Garcia Ponce's stories we are present at the gradual unveiling of a secret, but once they arrive at the very brink of revelation, they hang back: the nucleus, the essential truth is never said...It is easier to feel the fascination of these stories than to describe them; it is a sort of religious ecstasy that it would not be inaccurate to call quietistic".
In one a couple finds a cat, or rather the cat finds them. Without self-consciousness they simply accept the presence of this intruder as they play their erotic games; almost imperceptibly the feline creature becomes their talisman; without "the fixed gaze of those half-open yellow eyes on her naked body" the woman is not able to give herself to the man, nor does he desire her. Their passion depends upon a third party: the presence of an animal which like desire appears from nowhere and guides them into a land they barely recognize but fully inhabit.
"The Square" also centers on an encounter, not with an emissary from the world of desire, but with time itself. An elderly man searches for the time past, his time, in the town square of the provincial city where he haas lived all his life, but what he finds is an infinite, nameless happiness, a far vaster time, a time that is never gone although it is always going by...
"The Seagull" is the story of a meeting of two adolescents at a Mexican seaside beach. Their passion isolates them from their playmates, and like the cat that intrudes upon them in the first story, their passion leads them to discover an awesome and violent reality: that of their own selves as they were not yet ready to contend with in the solace of their lesiure.
The sexual act is likened to the dead seagull killed by the boy, sex a criminal act of proportions indeterminable but terribly felt. As in Chekov's play of the same title the seagull is a symbol, yet here not of art and the artistic temper but of the roaming freedom curtailed by the nature of desire, which ironically promises freedom.
The last story here included is "Anticipation", where a man while talking to a childhood friend reminisces on the most important episode of his life: a vision, which had occurred him at the end of a long journey to Spain, of the girl he loved during his adolescence. What emerges from these tales is the presence of a mystical enigma that suffocates and liberates the protagonists alike, while disrupting the absence of beauty into a beauty that is terrifying. Innocence is only a byword in these musings, for in Garcia Ponce's writings one is led to the ecstasy of the human condition, its intolerable cruelty and the presence of the absent core that drives us into realms we are not equipped to understand.
Juan Garcia Ponce is the author most representative of the New Wave of MExican Cinema in a prose that cradles the whimsies and idiosyncrasies of revelations informing us of more we are aware of, trnaslating the devine in haunts of sublime suffusions preternatural and subhuman alike.
He is widely read in Latin America and Spain, whereas his editorial labors with Octavio Paz in the founding of the review Vuelta. Furthermore most Spanish readers of a cetrain standing may recognize him as the translator of authors such as Robert Musil, Klossowski, Ceasre Pavese, James Joyce and Thomas Mann. He is indeed a true poet writing in a prose that verges on Gabriel Garcia Marquez's intimations with ecsatasy and Alejo Carpentier's tentalizing madness sublimated to a very philosophical disposition.
This quartet of stories will not fail to strike a chord of the most abstruse yet sublime sort with most any reader that lives to explore the savagery of beauty Latin American (and here particularly Mexicans) have yet to forsake...

This book contains three short-stories that are considered among the best of mexican 20th century literature. Remember Juan Rulfo's El llano en llamas, Inés Arredondo's Underground river -río subterraneo- (she's of García Ponce's generation), Juan José Arreola, et al. El gato is the first story and, in my taste, the best. Maybe that's because i live in a building like the one described there (one of the author's best achievements is description). The plot involves a woman, a cat, and a man. That's all i can say about it but you should know there's much more to it. La plaza is a short piece on melancholy for a city remembered; a place one knew in youth and comes back a mature man. La gaviota is a beautiful piece on teenage love, Octavio Paz said that it was the first time in mexican literature that someone wrote about the subject with great quality. This is a great introduction to the mature García Ponce.
