Un clásico autobiográfico que relata la increíble evasión de un hombre que vivió una auténtica odisea por perseguir aquello que nunca debió perder: la libertad.


En 1931, Henri Charrière, apodado Papillon por el tatuaje en forma de mariposa de su pecho, fue condenado a prisión por un asesinato que no había cometido. Sentenciado a cadena perpetua en una colonia penal de la Guayana Francesa, en su mente solo cabía una meta: escapar. Tras varios intentos fallidos de fuga a lo largo de los años, fue enviado a la llamada Isla del Diablo, de donde ningún recluso se había evadido jamás... hasta su llegada.

La lucha por la libertad de Papillon sigue siendo una de las más increíbles hazañas que el ingenio, el tesón y la valentía humanos hayan demostrado jamás. Su relato dio lugar a esta extraordinaria autobiografía, la odisea de un hombre inocente para perseguir lo que nunca debió perder: la libertad.

Reseñas:

«La mayor hazaña de todos los tiempos.»

Auguste Le Breton

«Un clásico moderno de coraje.»

The New Yorker

«Una extraordinaria historia de aventuras.»

The New York Review of Books

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

Henri Charrière, nicknamed "Papillon," for the butterfly tattoo on his chest, was convicted in Paris in 1931 of a murder he did not commit.

Sentenced to life imprisonment in the penal colony of French Guiana, he became obsessed with one goal: escape. After planning and executing a series of treacherous yet failed attempts over many years, he was eventually sent to the notorious prison, Devil's Island, a place from which no one had ever escaped . . . until Papillon. His flight to freedom remains one of the most incredible feats of human cunning, will, and endurance ever undertaken.

Charrière's astonishing autobiography, Papillon, was first published in France to instant acclaim in 1968, more than twenty years after his final escape. Since then, it has become a treasured classic--the gripping, shocking, ultimately uplifting odyssey of an innocent man who would not be defeated.

About the Author:

Henri Charrière nació en Saint-Étienne-de-Lugdarès, Francia, el 16 de noviembre de 1906, y murió en Madrid el 29 de julio de 1973. Huérfano de padre desde 1917, se alistó en la Armada Francesa en 1923. Allí sirvió durante dos años, y, a su regreso, se casó y se adentró en la vida de los bajos fondos parisinos. El 26 de octubre de 1931 es condenado a trabajos forzados en cadena perpetua por el asesinato del proxeneta Roland le Petit, un crimen que él siempre negó haber cometido. Con su ingreso en prisión da comienzo la extraordinaria historia que él mismo se encargó de narrar en su célebre Papillon (1969), adaptada al cine en una extraordinaria actuación de Steve McQueen y Dustin Hoffman.
