Una novela irónica y conmovedora que gracias a la ocurrente mirada de su narrador, un gato, nos reconcilia con la vida. Un gato, es un gato, es un gato... diría una sabia mujer, pero Nana no es un gato cualquiera. Tiene el pelo blanco y la cola en forma de siete, le gustan los filetes de cerdo empanados y los platos a base de pollo y salmón, tiene las uñas afiladas, la mirada atenta... pero hay más: Nana entiende el lenguaje de los humanos y tiene opiniones muy suyas a propósito de la vida. Nació en la calle y estaba acostumbrado a dormir encima del capó de una furgoneta plateada, hasta que un buen día un hombre delgado y alto se le acercó sonriendo, y desde entonces fueron inseparables. Satoru y Nana vivieron juntos durante cinco años, pero ahora ha llegado el momento de separarse y de buscar un nuevo dueño para él. Empieza el viaje, y Nana verá por primera vez el mar y los campos sembrados de hierba alta, vivirá en primera persona las emociones más hondas de los humanos, el dolor de la pérdida, y al final este gato callejero será también un gato muy nuestro gracias a la ternura y al sentido del humor de Hiro Arikawa. «Un gato es un auténtico lujo... La chispa de sus ojos te recuerda todo lo que esconde el amigo que tienes al lado, ese animalito que maúlla de placer cuando lo acaricias.» Doris Lessing

Este proyecto analiza las diversas formas en que la representación del espacio se ha utilizado para la construcción de Asia, especialmente de China y de Japón, por los escritores hispanoamericanos del siglo XIX y XX. Me aproximo a este estudio con una comprensión del espacio como una construcción social delineada por la relación del sujeto con el conocimiento adquirido a través de lecturas y experiencias reales vividas en Asia. Los principales autores estudiados son José Martí, Julián del Casal, Rubén Darío, Enrique Gómez Carrillo, José Juan Tablada y Efrén Rebolledo. Mi marco teórico está basado en las teorías geográficas de Michel Foucault, Benedict Anderson y Henri Lefebrve. Mediante la lectura de representaciones de espacios (práctica espacial, representaciones del espacio y los espacios de representación) de varios escritores hispanoamericanos a través de una representación geográfica del paisaje como construcción social, respondo al creciente interés de los estudiosos como Julia Kushigian y Araceli Tinajero para estudiar las complejidades de Asia como una construcción espacial del orientalismo hispano y su relación con Asia por los escritores hispanoamericanos del siglo XIX y XX.
