Description Juan Villoro, consecrated in Latin American Literature as a fiction narrator and prominent author in the Children's Literature publishing market, has developed in parallel a remarkable chronological production that has received little critical attention. The reading of these chronicles in conjunction with interviews given by the author allowed us to notice a self-representation as a chronicler versed in the art of listening. Theme that is the excuse to review part of his production with the focus on his ear attentive to the expressions and manifestations of mass culture. It is interesting to approach chronic listening, a characteristic aspect of its aesthetics, from analyzing the priority place of the voice of the soccer announcer Ángel Fernández, the links with the Mexican counterculture and the construction of a myth of origin that draws on mass culture.
Juan Villoro, consagrado en la Literatura Latinoamericana como narrador de ficción y autor destacado en el mercado editorial de Literatura Infantil, ha desarrollado de manera paralela una notable producción cronística que ha recibido escasa atención crítica. La lectura de estas últimas en conjunto con entrevistas dadas por el autor permitió advertir una autorrepresentación como cronista versado en el arte de escuchar. Tema que constituye la excusa para revisar parte de su producción con el foco en su oído atento a las expresiones y manifestaciones de la cultura masiva. Interesa aproximarnos a la escucha crónica, aspecto característico de su estética, a partir de analizar el lugar prioritario de la voz del locutor futbolístico Ángel Fernández, los vínculos con la contracultura mexicana y la construcción de un mito de origen que abreva de la cultura de masas.
