Download Histórias Quase Extraordinárias: (um conto de Natal, uma by Celso Azzan Jr. PDF

By Celso Azzan Jr.

Este livro reúne três contos longos. O primeiro é um conto de Natal. Inicia-se quando um dos personagens leva sua família para as compras de Natal num shopping-center. Lá, ele vê pela primeira vez o outro personagem, mais velho e vestido de Papai Noel, e se sente estranhamente interessado por essa figura. Alguns Natais se sucedem, e a história se concentra no encontro entre aquele jovem, que nunca conheceu o próprio pai, e este Papai Noel, que desde muito pace não revê seu filho. É essa relação simétrica, mas em tudo invertida, que o destino imprevisível de cada um deles tratará de desdobrar e revelar. Mas, afinal, quem narra a história? E por quê? Para um conto de Natal, gênero literário que Dickens canonizou segundo perspectivas moralistas muito distintas das aqui presentes, a resposta parecerá um tanto desconcertante.

O segundo conto – uma história de amor – constitui-se basicamente de uma carta, escrita e enviada por um homem à sua mãe, já idosa e doente. Nessa carta, ele conta parte de sua adolescência e dos muitos conflitos que ambos haviam vivido, quase sempre em nome disso que muito mal se outline sob o rótulo genérico de ‘amor’. A narrativa se concentra na história do namoro secreto entre esse homem, quando ainda adolescente, e uma garota que sua mãe nunca conhecera. As histórias de amor, narradas explícita e implicitamente nessa narrativa inacabada, conduzem não apenas à morte banal desse homem, mas também à sofrida e dura sobrevida dessa mãe. No entanto, é da relação entre esse homem e outra personagem, a mãe de sua namorada adolescente, que advém a mais importante história de amor que o manuscrito narra. No fundo, tal como somos levados a crer após a leitura, as histórias de amor parecem se constituir de alguma renúncia e muito idealismo, é verdade; mas igualmente de certa crueldade.

O terceiro conto – uma aventura policial – narra a história de um brasileiro que, após desentendimentos com a própria família, vai para Montreal com a finalidade de lá realizar seu doutorado em psicologia legal. Para ele, trata-se de um autoexílio, ele tem seus motivos. É trabalhando como detetive nessa cidade, no entanto, que ele conhecerá as maiores desventuras de sua vida, mas sua sorte se complicará de vez após o desfecho de um caso inacreditável que quase o destrói por completo. Demitido então da maior agência de investigações da cidade, ele junta o que resta dele e de sua reputação, e se une a uma antiga secretária dessa agência na tentativa de reconstruir a vida enquanto cuida de alguns casos mais ou menos simples. Muito pace se passa assim. Sua tarefa de refazer-se é dura, mas um dia, quando tudo parecia finalmente reencontrar ritmo general em sua vida, uma mulher tão irresistível quanto misteriosa o contrata para resolver um caso realmente horripilante, e é aí que seu mundo vira de cabeça para baixo, jogando-o na mais tenebrosa das histórias e juntando ao seu redor os maiores escroques da cidade. Enfim, não é disso que vive um detetive que trabalha na clandestinidade? E uma vez finalizado o caso, com absolutamente nada resolvido, resta perguntar: o detetive trabalha pra quem, exatamente?
