About this item

Por primera vez se reúnen en un solo volumen los cuentos completos de una auténtica leyenda literaria, Andrés Caicedo, en esta edición que incluye la reproducción facsímil de su primer relato, «El Ideal», inédito hasta el momento.


Casi cuarenta años después de su muerte, la obra de este autor icónico de la literatura colombiana resulta más fascinante y rompedora que nunca. Andrés Caicedo es un fenómeno literario excepcional: cada libro suyo que se reedita parece que fuera una novedad. Su técnica narrativa sigue sorprendiendo y todas aquellas constantes en su obra (el desacomodo social, las inquietudes existenciales, la dificultad para aceptar la realidad que nos rodea, el rechazo a toda convención...) tienen absoluta actualidad. Relatos como «El atravesado», «Destinos fatales» y «Canibalismo» son títulos emblemáticos que forman parte de una obra cuentística que renovó la literatura en español.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

For the first time, the complete short stories of an authentic literary legend, Andrés Caicedo, are gathered in a single volume, in this edition which includes the reproduction of his first tale, ?El Ideal,” unpublished until now.
Almost forty years after his death, the works of this icon of Colombian literature are more fascinating and bolder than ever. Andrés Caicedo is an exceptional literary phenomenon: each of his books that is reedited seems like a new release. His narrative technique continues to surprise, and all those constants in his work (social upheaval, existential doubts, difficulty to accept the reality around us, the rejection of convention, etc.) are extremely current. Tales like ?El atravesado” (?The Troublemaker”), ?Destinos fatales” (?Fatal Destinies”), and ?Canibalismo” (?Cannibalism”) are emblematic titles that form part of a body of short stories that rekindled literature in Spanish.
