Overview

Ésta es la historia de Jimmy, un niño que ama a su madre. Sensible y solitario, dotado de una singular capacidad de observación, Jimmy vive con sus padres en una mansión en las afueras de Lima, estudia en el colegio inglés más exclusivo de la ciudad, adora a su hermana mayor, cuya belleza ejerce sobre él una extraña fascinación, y sueña con ir a Disney en las vacaciones, promesa que le ha hecho su padre, un banquero poderoso, y, cuando sea mayor y pueda casarse con Annie, la elusiva niña que enciende sus primeras fantasías, jugar a fútbol en el F.C. Barcelona, el club de sus amores. Su madre, la señora más regia de Lima, distinguida y ausente como Jackie O, apenas tiene tiempo para complacerlo, pero Jimmy recibe en cambio los mimos, desvelos, halagos y cariño de la legión de empleados que tiene a su servicio: la cocinera, el chofer, el ama de llaves, el jardinero, el mayordomo, entrañables personajes con los que, al descubrir un mundo hecho de ilusiones rotas y amores desbordados, va perdiendo la inocencia, y a quienes termina queriendo como a su propia familia. "Yo amo a mi mami" es la confirmación de que Jaime Bayly ha alcanzado una sorprendente madurez como escritor. Con esta novela tierna y conmovedora, que evoca los días perdidos de su infancia, Bayly despliega toda su admirable destreza narrativa, brilla con ese raro don de intensidad reservado a los grandes novelistas y confirma, sin lugar a dudas, que se ha erigido en una de las voces más originales y poderosas de la nueva literatura hispanoamericana.

    Great man, Great book

    I accidently discovered Bayly's books while in Peru and I haven't been able to stop reading them since.The character Jimmy is a real boy, with all the flaws and troubles that come with them. Anyone who has read Bayly's books will realize that it is hard to just stop at one.

    I love Jimmy

    When I read Yo amo a mi mami I was twelve years old. It Made me laugh a lot, and think about Jimmy, his saint mother, his dad and all of his especial friends. Everything you'll read in the book is true and happened in Peru in the 70's.Also Jaime Bayly is a great writer and is a controversial person in t.v. programms like in his personal life. But after all , he's a wonderful peruvian writer. Bye. Gabriela Navarro.13 years. Lima-Peru
