The journalist is about to the fantastic novel with the events of building Tres Forques
The legend of the farm damn Valencia -a building at number 1 of the Avenida Tres Forques, in which have been registered since 1968 a number of deaths in strange circumstances - you already have your novel. It is Sinister, the writer and journalist Carlos Aimeur, which is inspired by this enigmatic place to build "a fantastic novel" and "absolutely fictitious".
The story, which is available on the platform of audiobooks Storytel, used the legends that have arisen around the building to display a plot starring Greta Hernandez, a journalist who is going through a bad time as the editor of a famous tv show about strange phenomena and looks at the building and its demolition as an opportunity to rebuild its relationship with the program and their work. Although she is deeply skeptical, the reality is willing to make him change his mind.
Aimeur points out, about the germ of the book, that "like many others before," he was appealing the initial premise of a cursed place, and what sparked his imagination and made him remember stories that I had previously written about similar situations. "I was out there, beating, and from the beginning I was clear that it was going to be a work of fiction, that I wanted to get away from the newspaper account and write a fantastic novel," says the writer, to Europa Press.
he Adds that for this to work has used stories and ideas that in some cases date back to the university, paragraphs, phrases, situations that invited him to reflect on matters more spiritual, while some of the ideas have come from conversations with authors and artists from valencia.
In this sense, refers to the theatrical director Santiago Sanchez, who was born a concept that underlies the whole novel, and is "the interaction with those who are no longer with our dead." "It was he who made me see that in some way we all talk about with them when we remember, when we think of them, when we find something that revives their footprint," says the author.
in Addition, Carlos Aimeur observed that with the character of the protagonist has wanted to do, "a tribute to many of the women" of his generation. "People of life as my wife, my sister, many friends but also to colleagues. And here I've been a real thief because I have stolen phrases, comments, gestures. I'm sorry, I couldn't help it," he jokes.
Aimeur insists that, although Claim there are "traits, details, that can evoke real life", really is "pure artifice". "To paraphrase the writer Georges Arnaud, author of The wages of fear -continues - the first fiction is Valencia because as everybody knows Valencia does not exist".
In terms of influences, you acknowledge that you have had many, some "conscious" as Neil Gaiman, other "inevitable", as Stephen King, Ambrose Bierce, to which I quote; "some fili" as Donna Tart and the atmosphere so evocative that it creates in The secret.
To the author of valencia, "the most difficult thing has definitely been writing thinking that it was going to be read". That forced him to adopt a narrative form is rare, that is the first person present, but that he considered it the most appropriate to convey the tension of the story.
"I am more than anything a storyteller and it is my intention to be as enjoyable and emotional as possible; the medium for me is not the message. I adore the physicality of books, I would love it if some day it comes out in paper because I love to play them," he concludes.
