More About This Book

Overview

Durante la mayor parte de su vida, Jasper Dean no ha sabido si compadecer, odiar, amar o asesinar a su paranoico y excepcional padre, Martin. Pero ahora que Martin ha muerto, Jasper puede reflexionar acerca del hombre que lo crió, y lo que descubre es que, pese a todas sus excentricidades, la suya fue una gran aventura. Mientras rememora los extraordinarios acontecimientos que llevaron al espectacular final de su padre, Jasper Dean recuerda una infancia de métodos estrambóticos y descubrimientos sorprendentes, a su infame y criminal tío Terry, a su madre misteriosamente ausente, y la batalla siempre perdida de Martin por dejar su impronta en el mundo que tanto despreciaba. Finalista del prestigioso premio Man Booker, esta original novela nos conduce del páramo australiano al París bohemio, de las junglas de Tailandia a laberintos, psiquiátricos y guaridas de criminales, y de lo más alto del primer amor a lo más bajo de la ambición frustrada. El resultado es un alocado viaje del anonimato a la infamia, así como la historia conmovedora y memorable de un padre y un hijo cuya simetría espiritual trasciende sus abundantes desencuentros. Una parte del todo es una divertidísima crítica del mundo moderno y el debut épico del vertiginoso talento de Steve Toltz.
