Overview

Ninguna experiencia en su niñez fue tan intensa para Carlos cuando, a punto de entrar en la adolescencia, se enamora de la madre de su amigo Jim. La historia de esa iniciación amorosa, de su deseo imposible e incurable, que ahora reconstruye, es también la historia de la reacción de la sociedad adulta de aquellos años. Y en todos los comportamientos que acompañaron su primera adolescencia, el Carlos adulto descubre ahora las grietas y las fracturas de un mundo que encerraba en sí mismo una descomposición anunciada. Inolvidable obra maestra en sus cortas dimensiones, ejemplo de precisión y sencillez narrativas que ofrece un sinfín de lecturas y niveles, Las batallas en el desierto se ha convertido, tras sucesivas reimpresiones, en un libro que ha conquistado generación tras generación a centenares de miles de lectores. Traducida a varias lenguas, ha inspirado la película Mariana, Mariana, e incluso la canción Las Batallas, de Café Tacuba, y ha sido elegida, después de Noticias del imperio, como la segunda novela mexicana más relevante de los últimos treinta años, según una reciente encuesta de la revista Nexos entre 60 escritores y críticos.

Editorial Reviews

Criticas
Mexico's foremost living poet Pacheco (1939- ) just received the Premio Internacional Octavio Paz de Poesia y Ensayo 2003 for his literary contributions to Latin American literature. This 1981 love story about a young boy's infatuation with the mother of one of his classmates is the first book of Pacheco's fiction to appear in English. Blending simple and direct prose with a complex narrative structure that shifts from past to present, Pacheco evokes 1930s Mexico City, with its beggars, pollution, and constricted lives of its lower middle class. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
