About the Author: William Faulkner

William Cuthbert Faulkner was a Nobel Prize-winning American novelist and short story writer. One of the most influential writers of the twentieth century, his reputation is based mostly on his novels, novellas, and short stories. He was also a published poet and an occasional screenwriter.

The majority of his works are based in his native state of Mississippi. Though his work was published as early as 1919, and largely during the 1920s and 1930s, Faulkner was relatively unknown until receiving the 1949 Nobel Prize in Literature, "for his powerful and artistically unique contribution to the modern American novel." Faulkner has often been cited as one of the most important writers in the history of American literature. Faulkner was influenced by the european modernism, and employed the Stream of consciousness in several of his novels.

Mosquitos (1927) nos descubre un Faulkner inesperado y plenamente disfrutable que por momentos puede hacernos pensar en Scott Fitzgerald. La novela es una sátira del mundillo artístico de Nueva Orleáns que tanto frecuentó el escritor en su juventud y, en ese sentido, el excelente prólogo a cargo de Justo Navarro ofrece las pistas para poder leer en clave el texto.
La señora Maurier, protectora de las artes, invita a un nutrido y excéntrico grupo de artistas, intelectuales y prohombres de Nueva Orleáns a pasar unos días en su yate y navegar plácidamente por el lago Pontchartrain y el inevitable Mississippi. Pronto la cubierta del Nausikaa se ve poblada de escultores, poetas, novelistas, diletantes y alguna que otra lolita, pero el encuentro entre exquisitos rápidamente deviene farsa. A través de unos personajes frívolos, ociosos e intrigantes, básicamente fútiles y mediocres, Faulkner nos presenta su peculiar visión sobre la jet-set sureña de la época, a la que fustiga sin piedad. La cháchara incesante de esta camarilla es parangonada al insufrible zumbido de esos insectos diminutos y obstinados, legión inevitable y odiosa, que asolan nuestros veranos y dan título al libro. Tras el dardo afilado de Faulkner subyacen reflexiones nada cómicas sobre la creación, la vejez y el deseo.
