de Valeria Luiselli (Méx)

 

Con la presencia de la autora

 

Profesor Invitado: Maria del Carmen Saen-de-Casas

Moderador: Mariano Louge

 ≪Este retrato multifacético de la artista como mujer joven, como estafadora profesional, como madre y esposa, sumerge al lector en una intimidad encantadora y franca. Con una excentricidad cautivadora y un ingenio brillante, con una sinceridad sexual que inquieta y la más conmovedora ternura, este libro retrata la salvaje y casi enloquecida imaginación de juventud como pocas veces se ha hecho antes. Valeria Luiselli es la precoz dueña de una maestría deslumbrante y una escritora enteramente original.≫
Francisco Goldman
