9788496454521: EL BOSQUE DEL CISNE NEGRO (Spanish Edition)

Es un enero frío y lluvioso en el pueblo inglés de Black Swan Green, y Jason Taylor, un niño de trece años, tartamudo encubierto y poeta a regañadientes, se espera un año aburridísimo en el pueblo más muerto del planeta. No cuenta con que tendrá que vérselas con los matones del colegio, los conflictos latentes en su familia, la guerra de las Malvinas, una exótica refugiada belga, una invasión de gitanos oprimidos y los caprichos de esas misteriosas criaturas conocidas como «las niñas». La última novela de David Mitchell es una crónica minuciosa de trece meses en el agujero negro que separa la niñez de la adolescencia, con el telón de fondo de una Inglaterra rural a punto de desaparecer y todavía ensombrecida por la Guerra Fría. Irónica, amarga, cómica y llena de vida, El bosque del cisne negro es la obra más aguda y cautivadora de Mitchell hasta la fecha. / It's a dank January in the Worcestershire village of Black Swan Green and thirteen-year-old Jason Taylor (covert stammerer and reluctant poet) anticipates a stultifying year in the deadest village on Earth. But Jason hasn't reckoned with a junta of bullies, simmering family discord, the Falklands War, an exotic Belgian emigre, a threatened gypsy invasion and the caprices of those mysterious entities known as girls. BLACK SWAN GREEN charts thirteen months in the black hole between childhood and adolescence, set against the sunset of an agrarian England still overshadowed by the Cold War. Wry, painful, funny and vibrant with the stuff of life, it is David Mitchell's subtlest and most captivating achievement to date.
