9788433970817: America (Spanish Edition)

Norman Mailer ha realizado un amplio trabajo como reportero en diversos periodicos y revistas americanas. Este libro es buena parte del fruto de dicho trabajo. Mailer traza un retrato de la America politica desde 1960 a 1999, desde la eleccion de Kennedy hasta las desventuras de Clinton, pasando por Nixon y el Watergate. Como contrapunto a los reportajes politicos descubrimos textos dedicados a las grandes obsesiones del autor: las corridas de toros o el boxeo, sin olvidar un texto mitico: El negro blanco. Prologos, articulos, criticas literarias y retratos completan la obra: un homenaje a Salman Rushdie, una critica de American Psycho, una carta abierta a Fidel Castro o encuentros con Kissinger, Carter, Doyle, Bush. Textos, cuya mayoria es inedita o inencontrable en castellano, que conforman un extraordinario retrato historico, social y cultural de la America contemporanea, y revelan a un Norman Mailer radical, que desafia la realidad multiple y cambiante de su pais. / Norman Mailer accumulated an ample body of work in his time as a reporter for many different American newspapers and magazines. This book has brought together a large part of the fruits of his labour. Mailer sketched a portrait of the political landscape of the United States from 1960 until 1999, from the election of Kennedy up until the misfortunes of Clinton, stopping at Nixon and Watergate along the way. As a counterpoint to his political reports we also discover texts dedicated to the authors obsessions such as bullfighting and boxing, and lets not forget The White Negro, his famous essay.
