Libro que me han prestado: Heavy Water and other stories por Martin Amis

por davidgp el 03/01/2008

De Martin Amis únicamente leí The Rachel Papers y la verdad me había gustado mucho, a pesar de que me había resultado un poco difícil el inglés que usaba el autor, con tanto argot específico del Londres de finales de los 70 principios de los 80… En esta ocasión me toca enfrentarme a historias cortas, espero disfrutarlas tanto como la novela que leí.

Heavy Water

De la contraportada

‘Brilliant… Contemplating the world gone worng, we find ourselves looking at the real world with constatn surprise, with a new vision… He produces a remarkable feat of rhetorical beauty and overwhelming truth… A terrific collection… brilliantly varied, constantly surprising chips of a superb imagination’ Mail on Sunday

‘Amis is inmmaculate as a comic stylist… irresistible’ Daily Telegraph

‘Comic inversions, fantastical elaborations and ripe satire – of popular culture, personal relationships, even the space-time continuum – all jostle in these pages, representing over 20 years of Amis’s sallies into short fiction. Simply ace’ Esquire

‘Amis draws us into topsy-turvy worlds, places where it’s the poets who earn millions and do coke, while screenwriters get published in kooky mangazines. And in the process, brilliantly explodes our pre-millennial tensions and pretensions’ The Face

‘This volume is essential reading for anyone remotely interested in where we are and how we got here’ Sunday Times
