PREMIO ALFAGUARA DE NOVELA 2015

«Una novela de suspense literario construida con gran eficacia narrativa en torno a un memorable personaje femenino y al poder de la genialidad. La autora ha sabido entrelazar amores y enigmas con una escritura a la vez compleja y transparente.»

Del acta del jurado



A Vera Sigall y Horacio Infante los une un amor de juventud y su pasión por la literatura. También un lazo misterioso que dos jóvenes, Emilia y Daniel, intentan desentrañar. Sin embargo, este no es el único enigma en sus vidas. Una mañana, Vera Sigall cae por las escaleras de su casa y queda en coma. Al principio, la noción de que su caída no fue un accidente aparece como una sospecha para Daniel. Pero con los días y las semanas, la duda irá creciendo hasta volverse una certeza. Emilia y Daniel se encontrarán en la búsqueda de la verdad acerca del accidente de la mítica escritora pero, sobre todo, en la necesidad de entender sus propios destinos.

Los laberintos del amor y la mentira y el talento desigual como desafío de una pareja son los grandes temas de esta novela de Carla Guelfenbein, una autora que ha deslumbrado a Coetzee y a miles de lectores en el mundo.

«Una novela de suspense literario construida con gran eficacia narrativa en torno a un memorable personaje femenino y al poder de la genialidad. La autora ha sabido entrelazar amores y enigmas con una escritura a la vez compleja y transparente.»

Del acta del jurado del XVIII Premio Alfaguara de novela, presidido por Javier Cercas y compuesto por Héctor Abad Faciolince, Ernesto Franco, Berna González Harbour, Concha Quirós y Pilar Reyes.


ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

With You at a Distance tells the story of Emilia, a young French student of Chilean origin who arrives in Santiago to work on a thesis about the elusive and mysterious writer Vera Sigall. Following a brief encounter between the two, Vera suffers a suspicious accident and is left in a coma. Incapable of finishing her work, during the tense wait in the hospital for a recovery that never seems to happen, Emilia meets Daniel, a neighbor of the novelist who is burdened by a life marked by a childhood event. The search for the truth about Vera’s accident is the start of a police investigation that will eventually reveal the true identities and the lives of all of the characters, as well as the relationships that unite them. With elements typical of suspense novels, this choral novel pursues two parallel story lines that end up interweaving. The clues, the suspects, and the false interpretations seem to lead to the revelation of a truth that is perhaps not what the protagonists are searching for. Love; the sacrifice for loved ones; the yokes of genius, family, identity, and lies; and the power of blood are some of the themes that this exhilarating tale deals with as it delves into a family secret that has been kept for generations.
