Publicada por aclamación pública en Argentina, El anatomista de Federico Andahazi lleva a los lectores a Venecia en el siglo XVI. Pues este es el momento y el lugar donde Mateo Colón, el anatomista, está a punto de hacer un descubrimiento insólito: el centro del universo erótico en la mujer. Colón siempre se ha visto a si mismo como un hombre de razón y ciencia en una época muy supersticiosa. Pero hasta él se ve tentado a utilizar el arte quimérico, cuando se enfrenta al antiguo reto, que puede destruir las más grandes mentes: Cómo hacer a una mujer profunda y deliciosamente feliz?

El anatomista nos recuerda el alcance del exuberante sentido histórico de Umberto Eco, y el ingenio desinhibido y sensual de Gabriel García Márquez. Con prosa tan delicada y suelta como una manta de seda, Federico Andahazi lleva a sus lectores en un viaje provocativo, recordándoles un territorio que jamás será completamente conquistado, pero cuya exploración y descubrimiento nos brindan satisfacción interminable.

Autor bestseller en Argentina, su país de origen, Federico Andahazi nació en Buenos Aires en 1963. Sus cuentos han recibido muchos premios y El anatomista es su primera novela.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Mateo Coln, an anatomist of the Renaissance period, falls in love with Mona Sofia, a Venetian prostitute. Searching to find a potion that will induce her to fall in love with him, he embarks on an exploration of the mysterious nature of women. In an act of daring, he starts experimenting with prostitutes and, something totally prohibited at the time, dissecting dead bodies. He thereby discovers the clitoris, a part of the anatomy until then unknown. However, before making his discovery public he must face the powers of the Inquisition. In the end, he is blacklisted and must find refuge with his beloved Mona Sofia. This lyrically written work, which is based on fact, received the prestigious Fortabat Award for the best Argentinean novel of the year. Recommended for public libraries. [The English-language version will be released by Doubleday in June. Ed.] Jorge Gonzalez

    Alluring and Enticing!!!

    I you enjoy historical novels, this is the way to go, it is sensual, very provocative and can be a bit morbid, but that is what is appealing in this piece of work.
