El insomnio de Bolívar: Cuatro consideraciones intempestivas sobre América Latina en el siglo XXI [NOOK Book]

Overview

"Fue en España, para ser más preciso en Salamanca, apabullado por las centenarias piedras de Villamayor, frente a las severas estatuas de fray Luis de León y Unamuno, o al menos ante sus nombres inscritos en camisetas, afiches y llaveros, donde descubrí que yo era latinoamericano. Acababa de cumplir veintiocho años y hasta entonces había vivido en México, donde jamás fui consciente de esta condición y donde nunca tuve la fortuna o la desgracia de toparme con alguien que se proclamase miembro de esta especie."

Overview

"Fue en España, para ser más preciso en Salamanca, apabullado por las centenarias piedras de Villamayor, frente a las severas estatuas de fray Luis de León y Unamuno, o al menos ante sus nombres inscritos en camisetas, afiches y llaveros, donde descubrí que yo era latinoamericano. Acababa de cumplir veintiocho años y hasta entonces había vivido en México, donde jamás fui consciente de esta condición y donde nunca tuve la fortuna o la desgracia de toparme con alguien que se proclamase miembro de esta especie."

Así arranca Jorge Volpi este deslumbrante recorrido por la América Latina del bicentenario, con sus luces, sus sombras, sus caudillos, sus ex guerrilleros, sus escritores, sus injusticias y sus promesas de un futuro mejor. Las cuatro brillantes consideraciones en que divide el ensayo le sirven para repasar el presente latinoamericana, apuntar sus raíces y atisbar posibles desarrollos en la política, la sociedad y la literatura de la región. En palabras del jurado que le concedió el II premio Debate - Casa de América, Jorge Volpi "recorre, de manera inteligente y seductora, la historia de América Latina desde su pasado mítico hasta su futuro imaginado, escapando al tono académico y contribuyendo, con humor, ironía y gran oficio literario, a la comprensión del continente americano."
