About this title

Synopsis:

Heroes, mitos, leyendas literarias. El lector que se aventure en esta galeria de retratos que componen Mitologias se hallara ante una serie de personajes excepcionales, fascinantes, magneticos, pero de carne y hueso. En este recorrido alternativo por la historia de la creacion literaria y artistica, Manuel Vicent pasa del glamour de Andy Warhol a la desdicha de Cezanne o Billie Holliday. Artistas malditos, autodestructivos y abocados a un final tragico como Modigliani o Montgomery Clift contrastan con los que, como Billy Wilder o Sinatra, supieron controlar su destino y alcanzar la felicidad. La honestidad y el compromiso de personajes como Yves Montand o Zenobia Camprubi chocan con la doblez de personajes como el falsificador Van Meegeren o el espia doble Anthony Blunt...

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION:Readers that venture into the portrait gallery that is this work will face a series of fascinating, exceptional, and compelling yet real-life characters. Vicent traverses from the glamour of Andy Warhol to the misery of Cézanne and Billie Holliday. Selfdestructive artists such as Modigliani and Montgomery Clift serve as a contrast for Billy Wilder and Frank Sinatra, who controlled their destiny and found happiness. The integrity and commitment of Yves Montand and Zenobia Camprubi clash with the twofaced nature of others such as the forger Van Meegeren and the double-agent Anthony Blunt...
