Overview


Tres amigos treintañeros se abren camino —o no— en la ciudad de Nueva York. Los hijos del emperador sigue la pista de los encuentros y desencuentros de estos tres personajes, de los triunfos y los combates postergados, de la búsqueda o invención del sentido y la propia autenticidad. Pero no parecen ser ellos los únicos atrapados entre el deseo, e incluso la tenacidad, por una parte, y las contingencias, dueña del mundo, por otra. En esta novela nadie está a salvo del desamor, de la idea que tienen del fracaso, del resentimiento crónico hacia el mundo. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION The Emperor’s Children is a richly drawn, brilliantly observed novel of fate and fortune—about the intersections in the lives of three friends, now on the cusp of their thirties, making their way--and not-- in New York City. In this tour de force, the celebrated author Claire Messud brings to life a city, a generation, and the way we live in this moment.“A masterly comedy of manners . . .. Splendid.” —The New York Times Book Review
