9788466333030: La cocinera de Himmler / Himmler's Cook (Spanish Edition)

He aquí la hilarante epopeya de Rose, una cocinera que nunca le ha temido a nada y que ha sobrevivido a las barbaries del siglo XX (el genocidio armenio, los horrores del nazismo y los delirios del maoísmo) sin perder el humor, el deseo de sexo y el afán de venganza: los tres pilares de la felicidad en su particular credo.

A los ciento cinco años aún regenta su famoso restaurante en Marsella, guarda una pistola en el bolso y no puede evitar los pensamientos eróticos cuando se cruza con algún tipo interesante. Esta singular cocinera, marcada por dos hombres y un siglo, se toma la justicia por su mano matando a sus enemigos suavemente. Rose pertenece ya a esa galería de grandes personajes literarios de los que no podemos separarnos. "El autor hace vibrar el siglo XX de modo que en cada página subyace una lección: la risa es el mejor profesor." Le Figaro littéraire.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

This is the hilarious saga of Rose, a cook who has never been afraid of anything and who has survived the brutalities of the 20th century (the Armenian Genocide, the horrors of the Nazis, and the delusions of the Maoists) without losing her sense of humor, her sex drive, and her thirst for revenge: the three pillars of happiness in her personal credo.

At the age of 105, she is still running her famous restaurant in Marseilles, she keeps a pistol in her purse, and she can't help but think naughty thoughts when she comes across a cute guy. Rose is one of those literary figures that one can never quite forget.

Review:

El humor y el descaro hacen de esta novela literalmente sobresaliente, un relato revelador de la condición humana más repugnante y a su protagonista en un ente de ficción memorable, que cree que el mal engendra el bien. [...] Giesbert se mueve con una agilidad literaria prodigiosa. --Lluís Fernández, La Razón

Divertida, cínica y generosa, alegre, sensual y ambiciosa, La cocinera de Himmler es uno de esos raros libros que nos reconcilian con la vida. --Valeurs actuelles

Una intriga trepidante, íntima, fresca e histórica, donde el sabor de las especias se mezcla con la sangre derramada de las barbaries humanas... Una novela fascinante y estremecedora que seduce por el desenfado y la elegancia de su estilo. --Le Magazine littéraire
