Overview

"Un texto increíble, casi perfecto. Borges o Cortázar habrían dado su mano derecha por escribirlo." Augusto Roa Bastos
El 20 de junio de 1973, Juan Domingo Perón regresa a la Argentina tras un largo exilio. En Madrid deja años de desprecio por parte del régimen de Franco y el recuerdo de una triunfal Eva Perón cuyo cadáver momificado descansa en su propia casa. Lo espera la mayor multitud jamás congregada, mientras sus seguidores luchan encarnizadamente por apoderarse del símbolo que aún representa el anciano general. En esta novela llena de acción, Tomás Eloy Martínez resume la historia argentina del último siglo a través de la biografía de un hombre que encarnó la esperanza de su pueblo, al mismo tiempo que indaga en las múltiples caras que presenta la verdad y el poder que tiene la ficción para crear puentes entre todas ellas.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Brillante imagen de una psicosis nacional. Obra vividamente escrita."

— Jay Cantor, en The New York Times

Un exito instantaneo en America Latina, La novela de Peron, escrita por el periodista y novelista argentino Tomas Eloy Martinez, antes de la publicacion de su renombrada Santa Evita, es una ficcion que cuenta la verdad. Combinando articulos de diario, fotos, testimonios y entrevistas del autor con el mismo Peron, con ficciones fantasticas, Martinez construye una obra audaz y potente que es a la vez un retrato brillante de Juan Peron, el dictador mas respetado y odiado en la historia de Argentina, y tambien una investigacion de los efectos devastadores y extranos del poder absoluto. Con su estilo unico, Martinez nos submerge en esta intriga donde la politica y la muerte son fuerzas eroticas. Un cuento historico de la vida de Juan Peron se convierte en una vista intima de este personaje quien hasta ahora ha sido tan enigmatico.

"Un texto increible, casi perfecto. Borges o Cortazar lo hubieran dado todo por hablerlo escrito." — Augusto Roa Bastos

"Maravillosamente estructurada. Siniestra, graciosa, elegante.... Poblada de imagenes de un poder metaforico estremecedor." — Village Voice

Jay Cantor
[The book] is a brilliant image of a national psychosis. --The New York Times Book Review
