Description

Por primera vez se reunen en un solo volumen los cuentos completos de una autentica leyenda literaria, Andres Caicedo, en esta edicion que incluye la reproduccion facsimil de su primer relato, El Ideal, inedito hasta el momento.

Casi cuarenta anos despues de su muerte, la obra de este autor iconico de la literatura colombiana resulta mas fascinante y rompedora que nunca. Andres Caicedo es un fenomeno literario excepcional: cada libro suyo que se reedita parece que fuera una novedad. Su tecnica narrativa sigue sorprendiendo y todas aquellas constantes en su obra (el desacomodo social, las inquietudes existenciales, la dificultad para aceptar la realidad que nos rodea, el rechazo a toda convencion...) tienen absoluta actualidad. Relatos como El atravesado, Destinos fatales y Canibalismo son titulos emblematicos que forman parte de una obra cuentistica que renovo la literatura en espanol. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION For the first time, the complete short stories of an authentic literary legend, Andres Caicedo, are gathered in a single volume, in this edition which includes the reproduction of his first tale, "El Ideal," unpublished until now.Almost forty years after his death, the works of this icon of Colombian literature are more fascinating and bolder than ever. Andres Caicedo is an exceptional literary phenomenon: each of his books that is reedited seems like a new release. His narrative technique continues to surprise, and all those constants in his work (social upheaval, existential doubts, difficulty to accept the reality around us, the rejection of convention, etc.) are extremely current. Tales like "El atravesado" ("The Troublemaker"), "Destinos fatales" ("Fatal Destinies"), and "Canibalismo" ("Cannibalism") are emblematic titles that form part of a body of short stories that rekindled literature in Spanish.
