Overview

Hay personajes que te miran una vez y se quedan para siempre en tu vida.
El tango de la Guardia Vieja, la nueva novela de Arturo Pérez-Reverte.

Incluye además el cuaderno de bitácora de esta novela.

La trepidante aventura de Max Costa y Mecha Inzunza les lleva a recorrer tres escenarios distintos del convulso siglo XX: pasarán en 1928 por Buenos Aires gracias a una extraña apuesta entre dos músicos, en Niza se verán envueltos una trama de espionaje durante los años de la Guerra Civil española y los primeros vientos de la segunda Guerra Mundial, para terminar en Sorrento, en los años sesenta, embarcados en una inquietante partida de ajedrez.

El tango de la Guardia Vieja narra con pulso admirable una turbia y apasionada historia de amor, traiciones e intrigas, que se prolonga durante cuatro décadas a través de un siglo convulso y fascinante, bajo la luz crepuscular de una época que se extingue.

En esta edición se incluye La construcción de una novela: El tango de la Guardia Vieja

Desde el inicio del proceso de escritura de El tango de la Guardia Vieja, Arturo Pérez-Reverte llevó una especie de cuaderno de bitácora de esta novela. A modo de making of, el autor registró algunas características de los personajes principales, las localizaciones en las que se desarrollaba la historia e incluso dio detalles sobre la resolución de problemas estilísticos o técnicos. Estos apuntes, varios de ellos recopilados en este libro, constituyen sin duda un valiosísimo material para la mayoría de los lectores o cualquier aspirante a escritor.

Reseñas:
«Arturo Pérez-Reverte cambia de registro, aunque sin salir de su mundo personal, y escribe una gran historia de amor. [...] La novela es también un amplio y documentadísimo fresco de la historia de una Europa desvanecida, la de los años veinte, treinta y sesenta. [...] Junto al amor y los sentimientos, unas páginas de sorprendente erotismo con una fuerte carga sexual. Y también grandes dosis perezrevertianas de aventura.»
El País

«La mejor novela de su autor.»
Sergio Vila-Sanjuán, La Vanguardia

«Asombroso compendio de amor y aventuras... Épica de los cuerpos y belleza entre las sábanas...»
Jacinto Antón, Babelia

«Eros, vida, deseo y aventura, todo ello contado por Arturo Pérez-Reverte de la mejor forma posible.»
Enrique Turpin, La Vanguardia

«Arturo Pérez-Reverte ha utilizado con genio, como un seductor deslumbrante, la iconografía cinematográfica, canónica, del héroe y la heroína, dos bellezas».
Justo Navarro, Babelia

«Una novela de madurez, redonda, en la que se han reunido las mejores cualidades del autor, con una historia narrada sin desfallecimientos, siempre en tensión».
Angel Basanta, El Cultural

Citas del libro:
«Una pareja de jóvenes apuestos, acuciados por pasiones urgentes como la vida, se mira a los ojos al bailar un tango aún no escrito, en el salón silencioso y desierto de un transatlántico que navega en la noche. Trazando sin saberlo, al moverse abrazados, la rúbrica de un mundo irreal cuyas luces fatigadas empiezan a apagarse para siempre.»

    El Tango de La Guardia Vieja by Arturo Pérez-Reverete Spanish Ed

    El Tango de La Guardia Vieja by Arturo Pérez-Reverete Spanish Edition

    This is a love story between Máximo (Max Costas) Covas Lauro and Mercedes (Mecha) Inzunza over three distinct periods of time: 1928, 1935, and 1966.

    The book opens in 1928, where Max is a professional dancer at the transatlantic luxury liner: The Cap Polonio, and he meets Meche and her husband, the famous Spanish composer Armando de Troeye. The young couple is going to Buenos Aires because Armando made a bet to the composer, Ravel, that he would compose a Tango to match Ravel’s Bolero. Max is very useful, because he grew up in the poor sections of Buenos Aires, where they still dance the original and sensual tango - which is dirtier and faster paced - than the one which is danced in the famous Parisian clubs. Max and Meche do drugs and make love - even as Armando watches - and it ends as Max steals from Meche an expensive pearl necklace that he sells in Montevideo.

    Fast forward to 1966, where Meche’s son, Jorge Keller is disputing a chess match between himself and the Russian world champion, Mijaíl Sokolov. Merche convinces Max to steal Sokolov’s chess book to give the advantage to their son, Jorge. Max has to remember what it was to be young - as the book says: he has to find his old shadow - and at age 64 climb over fences and steal from the KGB and the Russian master what becomes his last adventure. While he’s doing this, Pérez-Reverete re-enacts a similar episode in 1936 where Max is forced by fascist spies to steal a series of compromising letters from one of Merche’s friends, Susana Ferriol, and again, like at every turn, Max does what he does best....

    The Author of the Dumas’ Club does it again. The book is fascinating. You get a lesson in chess - its intrigues and manipulations - and in gigolo and spies‘ lives. You also feel like you’re living all three periods: the 1920’s with its luxuries, the pre WWII European situation and the Spanish civil war, and the 1960‘s and the cold war. It captures you from the beginning and it reads in a few days. Very well written, it is narrated from Max’s point of view. I recommend it to anyone who likes suspense and a good tale.
