Amazon.com description: Product Description:
Obra inédita de Carlos Fuentes en la que retrata los diferentes personajes a los que conoció y que influyeron en su vida. El diplomático y escritor mexicano deja un testimonio de afectos en este ensayo, que refleja la dimensión universal de sus amistades. Es un ensayo con una mezcla de vivencia compartida, y todo ello pasado a través del tamiz de la emoción, no del sentimentalismo. Es una miscelánea elaborada con precisas pinceladas, compuesto por anécdotas en las que el mismo Fuentes es protagonista. La dimensión de los retratados da una idea de la excelencia de la red social del escritor y diplomático, y de la importancia que ha tenido en las letras hispanoamericanas de los últimos decenios. Entre las personas que moran en este volumen están Alfonso Reyes, Luis Buñuel, François Mitterrand, André Malraux, Fernando Benítez, Susan Sontag, Pablo Neruda, Julio Cortázar, Ignacio Chávez y Lázaro Cárdenas. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION His work by Carlos Fuentes is a series of portraits of the different people he came to know and who influenced him throughout his life. The celebrated author and diplomat leaves behind a testimony of affection that echoes the universal dimension of his diverse group of friends. The essay is an eclectic canvas of shared experiences, where each precise brushstroke becomes an anecdote in which Fuentes plays a central role. The stature of those portrayed speaks to the distinction of the author’s social network and the impact he’s had on Latin American literature in the last decades. Among those who inhabit these pages are Alfonso Reyes, Luis Buñuel, François Mitterrand, André Malraux, Fernando Benítez, Susan Sontag, Pablo Neruda, Julio Cortázar, Ignacio Chávez, and Lázaro Cárdenas.
