Publisher Comments:

En 1588, en visperas de la turbulenta llegada al trono frances de Enrique IV de Navarra, cuando sigue fresca en la memoria la noche de San Bartolome y las guerras entre catolicos y protestantes tinen de sangre Europa, Michel de Montaigne, que es ya un filosofo respetado, conoce en Paris a una joven admiradora de su obra, Marie de Gournay. Y Montaigne, que tiene por entonces cincuenta y cinco anos y esta «bien casado», inicia una misteriosa relacion con la exaltada Marie, a la que convierte en «hija de adopcion». Para reconstruir esa pasion crepuscular, Jorge Edwards rastrea al Montaigne publico y privado, explora su relacion con las mujeres, su preparacion para la muerte, va dibujando al hombre politico, diplomatico, al pensador sensato y antidogmatico, y al sabio pero tambien travieso autor de los Ensayos. Y mientras aplica la leccion vital de Montaigne a su propia realidad, la de la infancia y la actual, Edwards ilumina los aspectos mas relevantes, curiosos, a menudo sensuales y, sobre todo, modernos del –ahora ya plenamente– novelesco personaje.
