9788496867116: El reparador (Narrativa Sexto Piso) (Spanish Edition)

Tired of his unfruitful existence, Yakov Bok moves to Kiev during Tsar Nicolas II’s reign to seek a better future. He soon finds work, but is forced to keep his Jewish identity a secret. However, after the murder of a Russian boy too close to his workplace, he is accused of carrying out the crime. And in a time of anti-Semitic virulence, there won’t be a lack of witnesses, evidence, and accusations all aimed at condemning him. This novel, which earned Bernard Malamud the Pulitzer Prize, explores how the idea of freedom grows within a man while he is the subject of a great injustice.

 

Harto de su infructuosa existencia, Yakov Bok  busca un futuro mejor en Kiev durante la época del zar Nicolás II. Pronto consigue un trabajo, pero se ve obligado a no revelar su identidad judía. Sin embargo, tras el asesinato de un niño ruso demasiado cerca de su puesto de trabajo, le señalan como autor del crimen, y no faltarán testigos, pruebas y acusaciones orientados a condenarle en una época de gran virulencia antisemita. Esta novela, la cual le obtuvo el premio Pulitzer a Bernard Malamud, explora cómo la idea de libertad crece en la conciencia de un hombre sometido a una terrible injusticia.

Book Description Sexto Piso Espana, Madrid, Spain, 2008. Soft cover. Book Condition: New. No Jacket. Yakov Bok, El reparador, se verá obligado a ser algo más que un factótum, tendrá que arreglar su propia vida. Harto de su infructuosa existencia busca un futuro mejor en Kiev, lejos del aislamiento que supone para él, un librepensador y lector de Spinoza, la comunidad judía. Pronto consigue un trabajo, después de salvarle la vida a un antisemita ebrio, pero en la época del zar Nicolás II y con un pogromo cada vez más y más tangible, se ve obligado a no revelar su identidad judía. Sin embargo, tras el asesinato de un niño ruso, demasiado cerca de su puesto de trabajo, le señalan como autor del crimen. No faltarán testigos, pruebas y acusaciones orientados a condenarle, en una época de gran virulencia antisemita. El reparador, la novela más aclamada de Bernard Malamud y por la que obtuvo el premio Pulitzer, es un intenso relato sobre cómo la idea de libertad crece en la conciencia de un hombre sometido a una terrible injusticia. Basada en un caso real, la obra dramatiza ese deseo de justicia de un personaje que no flaquea ante su propia inocencia. Esta novela, dolorosamente verosímil y absolutamente conmovedora, es también una gran alegoría del holocausto. Bookseller Inventory # 009653
