Overview

Con esta historia sobre la amistad y la madurez, envuelta en cierto aire de melancolía, Salamandra presenta en lengua española un escritor con un talento verdaderamente excepcional. Chad Harbach ha sido protagonista de uno de los debuts más resonantes en el panorama literario estadounidense. Elogiada con igual ardor por Jonathan Franzen y John Irving, por The New Yorker y la revista de Oprah Winfrey, la novela fue incluida por el New York Times entre las diez mejores obras de ficción de 2011. Desde entonces, mientras su libro se mantiene en las listas de los más vendidos y se publica en más de quince idiomas, el prestigio de este joven autor no ha hecho más que aumentar. Un acontecimiento fortuito es el nexo que une las vidas de cinco personas. Henry Skrimshander, un talentoso jugador de béisbol, llega a una pequeña universidad con una misión: rescatar al equipo de otra desastrosa temporada. La buena estrella del joven deslumbra a los entendidos y lleva al equipo a los mejores resultados de su historia. Sin embargo, un lanzamiento fallido, que Henry ha realizado con éxito millares de veces, tendrá consecuencias devastadoras para él y quienes lo rodean. Extrañas simetrías, giros inesperados de la fortuna y pruebas del delicado equilibrio entre la voluntad individual y el azar sirven a Chad Harbach para pintar un adictivo retrato de la América contemporánea, trazado con un conmovedor realismo psicológico. Harbach tiene el don de escribir con emoción sin caer en el sentimentalismo, y de crear con humor personajes que conquistan la mente y el corazón del lector.
