Lugar común la muerte by Tomas Eloy Martinez

By Tomas Eloy Martinez

Una colección de perfiles literarios de Tomás Eloy Martínez, el maestro del periodismo narrativo

Los retratos magistrales de este libro se mueven siempre sobre los angeles ambigua línea que separa los angeles realidad de l. a. ficción, una frontera tan inasible y tenue como los angeles materia que aquí se narra: las vísperas de los angeles muerte, el punto de mayor intimidad y conciencia ante lo precario de l. a. condición humana.

Una escritura brilliant y audaz a l. a. vez combina el documento y los angeles literatura para asistir al instante en que todo se perdió en Hiroshima y Nagasaki, detenerse en los últimos días de Juan Manuel de Rosas en Southampton y los del gran poeta venezolano José Antonio Ramos Sucre en Ginebra, así como para describir los extraños eclipses de Felisberto Hernández y Saint-John Perse, para aproximarse al imposible mesías que nunca llegó a ver Martin Buber y al delirante discurso de José López Rega sobre el sueño crepuscular de Juan Domingo Perón.

Hace dos décadas, antes de escribir Santa Evita y convertirse en uno de los escritores argentinos más traducidos, Tomás Eloy Martínez publicó Lugar común l. a. muerte en Caracas, donde vivía exiliado. A esa edición, compartida por generaciones de estudiantes de periodismo y literatura, se agregaron dos textos en l. a. versión de 1998 —sobre José Bianco y Manuel Puig—, y se suman ahora otros dos, sobre José Lezama Lima y Augusto Roa Bastos. los angeles devastadora precisión de su escritura confirma los angeles feliz actualidad de uno de los mejores libros del autor.

La crítica ha dicho...
«Lugar común l. a. muerte es el relato de los angeles vida de otros, mayormente escritores. [...] No es un libro de perlas, tan solo: es un mar entero. Léanlo.»
Juan Cruz, Babelia

«Tomás Eloy Martínez afirma su lugar entre los mejores escritores de América Latina.»
