About this item

Libro de Manuel es la gran novela política de Julio Cortázar.

Libro de Manuel (1973) es una síntesis polémica de las búsquedas estéticas de Cortázar y de su interés por los movimientos revolucionarios de aquellos años. Puede leerse como un desplazamiento natural de los personajes y los temas de Rayuela hacia las urgencias y los fervores de un mundo convulsionado. Pero conserva de aquella novela fundamental toda la fantasía, el desenfado y la frescura que han hecho de Cortázar un escritor único e irrepetible dentro del panorama literario del siglo XX.

«Cortázar es uno de los mejores escritores argentinos.»
Adolfo Bioy Casares


This, Cortázar’s great political novel, focuses on the political condition of Latin America. It is a controversial blend of his aesthetic searches and his interest in the revolutionary movements of those times. This manual for the child Manuel is a sort of collage of press clippings, and among other things it reveals torture techniques used by U.S. soldiers in the Far East and juxtaposes them to similar tortures suffered by Latin American political prisoners.
