Overview


En una apacible ciudad de una región imprecisa hay un sitio muy especial: un museo dedicado al suicidio, fundado por una rica benefactora con el noble intento de disuadir a las almas afligidas de pensar en la muerte. Sin embargo, cuando cae la noche, suceden cosas muy extrañas. ¿Qué horribles secretos se esconden tras sus muros? Y ¿quién es Ernst Fröhlicher, el enigmático doctor a quien siempre acompaña un fiel perro labrador negro? Entre presencias siniestras, triángulos amorosos, suicidios, canibalismo, personajes grotescos y situaciones al límite del absurdo, se teje una fábula gótica, apasionante y divertidísima.



«Una fábula gótica, extraña y surrealista que combina romance arrebatador, nihilismo y desesperación, flaquezas humanas, ¡ah! y unas cuantas arañas de aperitivo, y nos brinda un relato único y chispeante. Dan Rhodes es un escritor a atesorar.»

List


«Rhodes ha dado al mundo pequeños libros geniales, relatos en los que conjuga un estilo prosístico preciso, un temperamento cómico maravillosamente anclado en lo oscuro, y una dosis de emoción que parte los corazones. Corazones hambrientos es sin duda su obra más lograda hasta la fecha.»

The Scotsman


«Una fábula divertida sobre cómo pueden frustrarse el altruismo y malograrse las buenas intenciones, cuya lectura complacerá a idealistas cínicos y a cínicos idealistas por igual.»

Financial Times


«Bajo la ligereza superficial de su tercera novela, Rhodes ha urdido una trama ingeniosa, oscura y precisa como un reloj… El resultado es un libro abigarrado, lleno de vida y de fugas rocambolescas, descripciones deslumbrantes de detalles curiosos y personajes interesantes.»

The Daily Telegraph


«Rhodes es un novelista cómico que aborda asuntos como el sufrimiento, la neurosis, la soledad, el egocentrismo, e incluso la maldad genuina. Qué delicioso e inspirador leer una novela que destila una sabiduría cargada de mordacidad.»

Scotland on Sunday


«Después de leer el libro de Rhodes, uno acaba aplaudiendo a rabiar.»

The Observer


«Ah, cómo nos gusta Dan Rhodes. Indefectiblemente raro, pero siempre fabuloso.»

The Guardian

Meet the Author

Dan Rhodes
Dan Rhodes
Dubbed nothing less than "the best new writer in Britain" by The Guardian, Dan Rhodes was selected as one of Granta's Best Young British Novelists and tapped by the Barnes & Noble Discover Great New Writers program in 2003.

Good To Know

In our interview, Rhodes shared some fun facts about himself with us:

"When I was 22, I was fired from a sensible office job after nine days for my failure to adapt to an adult environment. I still have difficulty acting in a grown-up manner, and this gets me into all kinds of trouble."

"The pinnacle of my showbiz career came when a copy of my first book, Anthropology, was seen on Carrie's desk in an episode of Sex and the City. It's been downhill ever since."

"I was in the audience at the final concerts of both the Smiths and the Spice Girls."
