About this item

«Una novela llamémosle existencialista, y a la vez un juego de la inteligencia»La VanguardiaYambo es un hombre de sesenta años que, tras sufrir un accidente, ha perdido la memoria personal, la más ligada a las emociones, y ve su propia vida como si acabara de inaugurarla. Para recuperarse, pasa una temporada en el caserón de Solara, un pueblo en las colinas piamontesas, donde pasó su infancia. En el desván están guardados los libros, los cómics, los discos, los recortes de periódico y los carteles de las películas que lo acompañaron en los primeros años de su vida. Yambo inicia entonces una labor casi detectivesca por volver a dibujar el pasado a través de estos objetos, cosas nuevas que le hablan de un mundo que fue el suyo y el de todas las personas que vivieron los momentos más importantes del siglo xx.ENGLISH DESCRIPTIONYambo, a sixtyish rare-book dealer who lives in Milan, has suffered a loss of memory-he can remember the plot of every book he has ever read, every line of poetry, but he no longer knows his own name, doesn't recognize his wife or his daughters, and remembers nothing about his parents or his childhood.In an effort to retrieve his past, he withdraws to the family home somewhere in the hills between Milan and Turin. There, in the sprawling attic, he searches through boxes of old newspapers, comics, records, photo albums, and adolescent diaries. And so Yambo relives the story of his generation: Mussolini, Catholic education and guilt, Josephine Baker, Flash Gordon, Fred Astaire. His memories run wild, and the life racing before his eyes takes the form of a graphic novel. Yambo struggles through the frames to capture one simple, innocent image: that of his first love.A fascinating, abundant new novel-wide-ranging, nostalgic, funny, full of heart-from the incomparable Eco.
