ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

Instant New York Times Bestseller

"Unimpeachably terrific." --The New York Times Book Review
One of CBS This Morning's 6 "Must-Have Titles for Your Summer Reading List"
The publishing phenomenon topping bestseller lists around the world, with sales of more than two million copies in Europe and rights sold in more than forty countries, The Truth About the Harry Quebert Affair is a fast-paced, tightly plotted, cinematic literary thriller, and an ingenious book within a book, by a dazzling young writer.

August 30, 1975: the day fifteen-year-old Nola Kellergan is glimpsed fleeing through the woods, never to be heard from again; the day Somerset, New Hampshire, lost its innocence.

Thirty-three years later, Marcus Goldman, a successful young novelist, visits Somerset to see his mentor, Harry Quebert, one of the country's most respected writers, and to find a cure for his writer's block as his publisher's deadline looms. But Marcus's plans are violently upended when Harry is suddenly and sensationally implicated in the cold-case murder of Nola Kellergan--whom, he admits, he had an affair with. As the national media convicts Harry, Marcus launches his own investigation, following a trail of clues through his mentor's books, the backwoods and isolated beaches of New Hampshire, and the hidden history of Somerset's citizens and the man they hold most dear. To save Harry, his own writing career, and eventually even himself, Marcus must answer three questions, all of which are mysteriously connected: Who killed Nola Kellergan? What happened one misty morning in Somerset in the summer of 1975? And how do you write a book to save someone's life?



About the Author



Joël Dicker nació en Suiza en 1985. En 2010 obtuvo el Premio de los Escritores Ginebrinos con su primera novela, Los últimos días de nuestros padres (Alfaguara, 2014). La verdad sobre el caso Harry Quebert (Alfaguara, 2013), fue galardonada con el Premio Goncourt des Lycéens, el Gran Premio de Novela de la Academia Francesa, el Premio Lire a la mejor novela en lengua francesa, y, en España, fue elegida Mejor Libro del Año por los lectores de El País y mereció el Premio Qué Leer al mejor libro traducido y el XX Premio San Clemente otorgado por los alumnos de bachillerato de varios institutos de Galicia. Traducida con gran éxito a treinta y tres idiomas, se ha convertido en un fenómeno literario global.

El Libro de los Baltimore (2016), su esperada esperada tercera novela, recupera a Marcus Goldman como protagonista. Ahora Alfaguara publica El tigre, un relato escrito cuando Dicker contaba con diecinueve años y que por su calidad un jurado literario no creýo que fuera suyo.
