Der Kontrabass by Patrick Süskind( Book )
11 editions published between 1986 and 2013 in Spanish and held by 27 libraries worldwide
Como la pasión y poderío olfativos del protagonista de El perfume, el instrumento que es a un tiempo orgullo y condena del músico de El contrabajo posee la rara virtud de encarnar en una particularidad obsesiva las paradojas y dobles fondos de la vida, aunando el análisis social, la comedia bufa y lo costumbrista, en un arco muy tenso que sigue con un rotundo monólogo las vibraciones del concierto humano. Esta obra trata--entre otras muchas cosas--de la existencia de un hombre en su pequeña habitación. La estancia insonorizada en cuyo ámbito transcurre íntegramente la acción es un microcosmos en el que aparece encapsulado un destino humano singular, que es a la vez el de un instrumento y el de su intérprete. La inventiva de Süskind, su frío y lúcido sentido del humor corrosivo y su capacidad de poner al descubierto el envés alucinante de la existencia cotidiana obtienen en El contrabajo una pequeña y sorprendente obra maestra de concisión y síntesis

This atom-splitting disruption in the orderly existence of a most anxious creature of habit precipitates a series of crises that are as moving and dismaying as they are funny. Teetering precariously on the edge of madness, Jonathan careens headlong on a journey of the self that leads him-and us-from terrror to redemption, from darkness to light, to an emotional resolution that offers further proof of a virtuoso writer's extraordinary art
