El ángel Esmeralda (Spanish Edition) by Don DeLillo,Ramón Buenaventura PDF

By Don DeLillo,Ramón Buenaventura

ISBN-10: 8432221287

ISBN-13: 9788432221286

El ángel Esmeralda reúne, por primera vez en español, los cuentos completos de Don DeLillo, en los angeles edición establecida por el propio autor. Escritos entre 1979 y 2011, estos nueve relatos descubren una faceta poco conocida de este coloso de las letras estadounidenses, y demuestran una vez más que «nadie escribe mejor que Don DeLillo» (PAUL AUSTER).

La clarividente maestría de DeLillo vibra en cada una de estas páginas: en l. a. pieza que da título al volumen, dos monjas que trabajan en las violentas calles del sur del Bronx confirman un milagro, los angeles aparición de una niña muerta, Esmeralda. En «Creación», una pareja termina un crucero en una isla del Caribe y no puede salir de ella: vuelos cancelados, falta de dinero, reservas sin confirmar… «Momentos humanos de l. a. Tercera Guerra Mundial» describe cómo dos astronautas en órbita alrededor de los angeles Tierra escuchan voces procedentes de una radio estadounidense de hace cincuenta años.

«DeLillo es el maestro del terror, del terror moderno o posmoderno, y de l. a. forma en que se cierne y brilla en nuestras mentes subconscientes. Los dioses han dotado a DeLillo con las antenas de un visionario. Hay un lado derecho y un lado izquierdo. Pero él viene de un tercer lado, oblicuo, transversal. Me encanta El ángel Esmeralda», Martin Amis, The New Yorker.

New PDF release: Tutti i racconti (Italian Edition)

By Luis Sepúlveda,B. Arpaia,I. Carmignani

ISBN-10: 8823503981

ISBN-13: 9788823503984

«Un grande narratore capace di cogliere i dettagli più profondi nel magistrale artigianato del raccontare.»
La Stampa

«Sepúlveda ha il senso della narrazione concisa ed efficace, il gusto delle immagini finemente cesellate, un grande dono dell’evocazione che gli permette di rendere semplici, stilizzandoli, gli esseri e gli avvenimenti più complicati.»
Le Monde

«Dopo aver buttato through moltissimi racconti che mi sembravano scritti da un secondo Cortázar, meno bravo di lui, mi decisi a raccoglierne alcuni in un libro» mi disse Sepúlveda una sera a Gijón. «E lì imparai che il genere che più mi piaceva, quello in cui mi sentivo più a mio agio, period il genere più difficile: il racconto breve. Quando scrivi un romanzo, a volte può succedere che i personaggi ti sfuggano consistent with un po' di mano, e va benissimo, a patto che poi tu riesca a recuperarli e a ricondurli sul sentiero prestabilito. Nel racconto, non può accadere neanche questo, non ne hai il pace e l. a. possibilità, eppure in quel genere mi sento a mio agio perché los angeles sfida è terribile: il racconto è narrazione pura.» Ed è forse nel racconto... che Sepúlveda dà il meglio di sé, grazie al suo gusto in keeping with le immagini pennellate con estrema cura, alla sua capacità affabulatoria ed evocativa che gli permette di stilizzare con semplicità e leggerezza calviniane i personaggi e gli eventi più complessi. Avere sotto mano, in un unico quantity, tutte le sue narrazioni brevi consente dunque al lettore di apprezzare ancora meglio queste sue virtù, viaggiando con maggiore comodità nei suoi microuniversi... che si svolgono negli scenari più remoti e diversi, dalla Patagonia al Nicaragua, da Amburgo al Cile, da Parigi a El Idilio, l'immaginario villaggio del Vecchio che leggeva romanzi d'amore. Percorrendo d'un fiato questi paesaggi, ci si renderà anche conto dell'evoluzione dell'autore cileno, fino ai racconti più recenti, in cui los angeles voce di Luis Sepúlveda diviene inconfondibile e imperiosa come un marchio di fabbrica.

By Guillermo Sampeiro

ISBN-10: 6071125006

ISBN-13: 9786071125002

¿Te acuerdas, Julia?, es un compendio de historias, en su mayoría breves, llenas de fantasía, humor, misterio, erotismo y violencia, escritas con un estilo lleno de matices en el que lo poético y lo vulgar no son antagonistas sino complementarios.

¿Te acuerdas, Julia?, dividido en tres partes, reune una serie de cuentos que describen una realidad latente en México y otros países de América Latina

En palabras de Hernán Lara Zavala:

"Si alguien me preguntara cuáles son los epítetos que definen l. a. narrativa de Guillermo Samperio, mi respuesta sería: lo extraño, lo extraordinario y lo humorístico. Sus cuentos pueden ser breves o extensos, realistas o fantásticos, paródicos o dramáticos, pero en todos priva una manera inimitable de percibir el mundo. A pesar de que parece vivir dentro de este mundo, narra sus historias como si formara parte de otro, un mundo distante, oblicuo, enrarecido e irónico. Escribe siempre desde l. a. delicadísima y tenue frontera que divide lo actual de lo posible, el sueño de l. a. vigilia, lo serio de lo humorístico, y con un lenguaje siempre apropiado que puede ir desde l. a. jerga vernácula de los angeles ciudad de México hasta el tono engañosamente culto y solemne de su obra epistolar. Samperio pertenece a l. a. gran estirpe de cuentistas mexicanos. No es solamente el escritor más imaginativo y unique de nuestra generación, él ha logrado abrir un camino en los angeles narrativa que estaba apenas vislumbrado por escritores de los angeles talla de Efrén Hernández, Julio Torri y Juan José Arreola."

La obra está dedicada a los angeles hermana del autor que falleció a escasos tres meses de edad.
