Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Cada relato en este libro es un hechizo urdido por el indiscutible ritmo y sensibilidad de Manuel Rivas. Da nombre a la obra una historia de amor, o mejor de un enamorado que da el giro definitivo a su vida con el atraco a un banco. En otros relatos es tambi?n el amor el protagonista indefinido: el amor del padre que va a trabajar con la preocupaci?n de no saber c?mo ni d?nde ha pasado su hijo la noche; el amor a la madre, de inefable semejanza, en el recuerdo infantil, a la lechera que pintara Vermeer en 1960; el amor m's carnal de Cami?a, con la inc?moda presencia de su perro Tarz?n; o -?por qu? no?- el amor compasivo que llega a sentir el lector por el viejo profesor rural de La lengua de las mariposas. La lengua de las mariposas ha sido adaptada al cine por Jos? Luis Cuerda y Rafael Azcona. Sobre la misma Woody Allen se refiri? como muy superior a la mayor parte de las porquer?as americanas que salen. Es una pel?cula que te hace pensar y que te llega. En otros tiempos ser?a la cl?sica pel?cula que se pasa cinco meses en cartel y todos mis amigos estar?an hablando de ella, como hablaban antes de las pel?culas francesas e italianas.

Synopsis:

Woven with the unmistakable rhythm and great sensitivity that trademarks Rivas works, the stories contained in this book revolve around love –the love of a father that leaves to work worried about where and how his son has spent the night; the love felt for a mother, indescribably similar, to the milkmaid captured by Vermeer in 1690; the more carnal love of Camiña, with the uncomfortable presence of her dog Tarzan; or, why not?, the compassionate love the reader feels for the old professor in rural Spain in “La lengua de las mariposas”.
