"Como ensayos "con arranque de novela" se pueden calificar los siete textos que conforman Las comidas profundas, en los que sobre una mesa vacía en La Habana de los noventa Ponte insiste paciente y laborioso en el carácter metafórico de toda comida porque, como dice, la escasez lo induce a pensar que cualquier comida es sustitutiva, "remedo de la leche materna"."--Page 4 of cover

6 editions published in 2010 in Spanish and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"La propagación de teléfonos móbiles, la creacíon de blogs independientes y la utilización de redes sociales como Twiter han cambiado profundamente las relaciones entre arte y política en Cuba. En los últimos años, las nuevas tecnologías han contribuido a revelar la violencia estatal, de la cual apenas se tenían pruebas e imágenes y sonidos. Los órganos de represión se han convertido en tema para algunos artistas, y la violencia política es descutida."--Page 4, Cover
Corazón de skitalietz by Antonio José Ponte( Book )

5 editions published in 2010 in Spanish and Undetermined and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"En "La viga maestra, el Tiempo", publicado en el 2003, Ponte se inquietaba aún ante la reiterada pregunta de sus amigos: "¿A qué vuelves a ese país?", e intentaba explicarse: "Todavía no acabo de encontrar contestación a pregunta tantas veces repetida. Así como ninguna estancia en el extranjero ha hecho que desista de esta extraña manía de volver. La pregunta, por tanto, se transforma. '¿Qué hago yo aquí?', me digo". En esta tensión entre irse de Cuba o quedarse; entre las razones del afuera y las del adentro; entre las preguntas y la imposibilidad de responderlas, en este espacio inestable de la indecisión es donde se colocan estos cuentos, no tanto para alcanzar una respuesta como para poner a prueba los riesgos y las posibilidades --para examinar los límites, para agotar las argumentaciones, para palpar la densidad de su búsqueda y el valor de cada alternativa. Las pulsiones en conflicto entre irse y quedarse definen uno de los núcleos productivos más importantes de estos cuentos. Teresa Basile."--Page 4 of cover
