Overview

Una novela sobre secretos y pasiones, sobre el amor por los libros, por las historias y por contarlas. Las vidas paralelas de un escritor, Emin Kemal, y su traductor, frustrado por su falta de talento literario. Y en el centro, una mujer ambiciosa a cuyo alrededor giran los dos hombres incapaces de escapar del círculo.
Un autor turco en el declive de su carrera muere en extrañas circunstancias. Su traductor al castellano se verá envuelto en la muerte del escritor y en una trama que lo obligará a destapar su propio pasado y el de Emin Kemal en Estambul. En la atmósfera de confusión flota la presencia oscura de Derya, esposa y amante.
Un conmovedor viaje por el tiempo, por paisajes y personajes que nos resultan cercanos y exóticos a la vez gracias a la habilidad narrativa de Luis Leante, Premio Alfaguara de Novela. La Luna Roja es un minucioso juego de espejos, un inquietante relato sobre la identidad y la literatura como parte de la vida.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Spanish author Leante rose to fame in 2007 when he won the prestigious Alfaguara award with Mira si te querré. In this work, a mysterious call leads aspiring author René Kuhnheim to visit Nobel-nominated Turkish writer Emin Kemal, whose books he translated into Spanish. Kuhnheim finds the author dead with a book in his hands that reveals that the translator (Kuhnheim) had an affair with Kemal's wife, Derya. Kuhnheim starts an investigation not of who murdered Kemal (he died of natural causes) but of his many life secrets and decides to write a book. Kuhnheim's first-person account, which abuses the phrase "I felt like in a spy novel," alternates with the life stories of the translator and Kemal, told by an omniscient narrator. The focus of the novel switches to a multitude of characters spanning several decades, including Kelkias Kelimezet, a Jewish writer who passed the baton to Kemal in the 1950s, and gives way to a dissertation on Turkey's political and religious turmoil in the 20th century. This hodgepodge of thriller, romance, history, and metaliterature ends up in a cascade of extravagant revelations and incidents, including body swaps, hidden children, and identity changes, but Leante's sober, precise style prevents the book from becoming a crazed telenovela. Recommended for bookstores and libraries with strong Spanish-language collections.—Carlos Rodríguez Martorell, East Elmhurst, NY
