Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

El general Simón Bolívar, “El Libertador” de los países de América del Sur, da, por última vez, un nostálgico viaje por el río Magdalena en el que vuelve a visitar ciudades en sus orillas donde revive sus triumfos, sus pasiones y las traiciones de toda una vida. Poseedor de un gran encanto personal, prodigiosamente afortunado en amores, en la guerra y en la política, todavía baila con tanto entusiasmo y habilidad que los que lo ven no pueden creer lo enfermo que está. Apasionado por los recuerdos del poder que tuvo, y de su sueño de unidad continental que nunca logró realizar, Bolívar es un ejemplo conmovedor de cuánto puede ganarse —y perderse— en una vida.

Review:

"Fascinante tour de force y conmovedor tributo a un hombre extraordinario." Margaret Atwood, New York Times Book Review

Review:

"Un libro notable...Gabriel García Márquez presenta su imagen de Latinoamérica y de un gran hombre devuelto a la vida." Richard Eder, Los Angeles Times Book Review

Review:

"Un retrato estupendo, convincente y conmovedor...Un tour de force." San Francisco Chronicle

Review:

"Pasaje tras pasaje reluce con la brillantez del escritor García Márquez...El ha inventado algunos de los personajes mágicos de nuestra época. Su General, sin embargo, no es sólo mágico sino real." Wall Street Journal

Synopsis:

General Simon Bolivar, "the Liberator" of five South American countries, takes a last melancholy journey down the Magdalena River, revisiting cities along its shores, and reliving the triumphs, passions, and betrayals of his life. Infinitely charming, prodigiously successful in love, war and politics, he still dances with such enthusiasm and skill that his witnesses cannot believe he is ill. Aflame with memories of the power that he commanded and the dream of continental unity that eluded him, he is a moving exemplar of how much can be won — and lost — in a life. Spanish edition.
