Overview

Esta novela es el testamento literario de Carlos Fuentes, una lección definitiva sobre lo que fue y seguirá siendo como escritor. Un autorretrato hablado donde el narrador se multiplica en sus personajes, creando la contradicción espiritual y filosófica que siempre bulló en su alma, una dialéctica que abre interrogaciones sin intentar respuestas determinantes. Es lo que hizo a lo largo de su vida y de sus libros: interrogar, cuestionar, abrir la ventana, asomarse, agarrar a las verdades establecidas por el rabo y hacerlas chillar.

Desde su balcón en el Hotel Metropol, Federico Nietzsche, que regresa a una edad moderna con sus viejas dudas y culpas, interroga a Federico Nietzsche en el otro balcón. Carlos Fuentes, desde el suyo, interroga a Carlos Fuentes que se asoma al otro. Entre ambos hay espejos que los reflejan y reflejan a las edades. Carlos Nietzsche y Federico Fuentes conversan sobre el poder, el amor y la justicia mientras van dando entrada a estrafalarios y paradigmáticos personajes al escenario de una revolución donde caerán cabezas. Así es la historia de la ambición humana, de la intriga por el poder, del delirio que lleva al crimen, de la bastardía de la traición, porque el poder implica hilos manejados tras bambalinas, dominio sobre el otro.

La gloria ha llegado, la gloria se ha ido. Volverán los de antes a levantarle monumentos a los de después, envolviendo a los sacrificados en un sudario de palabras. Y cuando Federico y su vecino cierren las puertas de sus balcones, todo volverá a empezar.

In the late Fuentes's last novel, the author reflects on love, justice, and power by engaging, through his character Dante Loredano, in an imaginary dialog with German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche.
