Description

La primera novela del autor del best seller internacional La luz que no puedes ver, Premio Pulitzer 2015. Desde su ninez en Alaska, David Winkler ha vivido obsesionado por la nieve. Ademas, David tiene un don: a veces puede ver cosas antes de que ocurran. Sus premoniciones le permiten saber que un vecino sera atropellado por el autobus o que se enamorara de una mujer en un supermercado. Pero cuando David suena que su hija se va a ahogar en una inundacion sin que el pueda salvarla, toda su vida se desmorona. Huir de su familia, de su casa y de su propio futuro parece el unico modo de negar el sueno que lo atormenta. Solo, sin medios y sin saber si su hija ha sobrevivido o si su mujer ha conseguido perdonarlo, David tendra que comenzar una nueva vida. Hasta el dia en que deba enfrentarse a la decision de buscar a las personas que dejo atras. Haciendo uso de una prosa luminosa, Doerr ha creado una inolvidable novela sobre el poder del amor y la belleza de la naturaleza, y sobre los pequenos milagros que transforman nuestras vidas. Resenas: Decir que este libro es bonito, extraordinario o emotivo es como no decir nada. En comparacion con la perfecta prosa de Anthony Doerr cualquier descripcion de esta novela parece trivial. Tan solo compre Sobre Grace, llame al trabajo para decir que esta enfermo, apague el movil y compruebe usted mismo lo buena que puede llegar a ser la ficcion actual.The Guardian Una fantastica hazana literaria. Casi perfecta.The Independent Doerr escribe con tierna belleza sobre la fragilidad humana y sobre el poder de la naturaleza hilando metaforas en un tejido literario deslumbrante. No recuerdo ninguna otra novela que me embelesara de la misma manera.London Evening Standard Esta fascinante novela es totalmente perfecta# Absolutamente inolvidable.Seattle Post-Intelligencer Una de esas novelas que se abren camino hasta introducirse en tus mismos suenos.Newsday Anthony Doerr ha escrito una historia hermosa y cautivadora. Una novela que logra ser inteligente sin ser pretenciosa, que se deleita con el simbolismo sin ser pesada en absoluto y que anima sin ser sentimental.The Daily Republic Anthony Doerr recorre de nuevo territorio conocido: el embeleso por la naturaleza expresado mediante una prosa magistral.The New York Times ENGLISH DESCRIPTION The first novel by the author of the acclaimed Pulitzer Prize-winning #1 New York Times bestseller All the Light We Cannot See, one of the most beautiful, wise, and compelling debuts of recent times. David Winkler begins life in Anchorage, Alaska, a quiet boy drawn to the volatility of weather and obsessed with snow. Sometimes he sees things before they happen--a man carrying a hatbox will be hit by a bus; Winkler will fall in love with a woman in a supermarket. When David dreams that his infant daughter will drown in a flood as he tries to save her, he comes undone. He travels thousands of miles, fleeing family, home, and the future itself, to deny the dream. On a Caribbean island, destitute, alone, and unsure if his child has survived or his wife can forgive him, David is sheltered by a couple with a daughter of their own. Ultimately it is she who will pull him back into the world, to search for the people he left behind. Doerr's characters are full of grief and longing, but also replete with grace. His compassion for human frailty is extraordinarily moving. In luminous prose, he writes about the power and beauty of nature and about the tiny miracles that transform our lives. About Grace is heartbreaking, radiant, and astonishingly accomplished.
