NOMINADA AL EL PREMIO MAN BOOKER INTERNACIONAL 2020

Una novela monumental sobre un loco ilustre de la tradici�n literaria europea. Daniel Kehlmann firma con Tyll una entretenida novela �pica de aventuras y una gran historia sobre el poder del arte y la devastaci�n de la guerra.

Daniel Kehlmann reinventa la novela hist�rica con esta biograf�a ficcionada de un personaje legendario del folclore alem�n: Tyll Ulenspiegel. Vagabundo, artista y provocador, naci� en el a�o 1600 en un ambiente de pobreza y violencia. Siendo ni�o, descubre su habilidad para entretener a la gente, el funambulismo y hacer malabares. Su padre, un molinero que es tambi�n mago, empirista y curandero, levanta las sospechas de los jesuitas y es acusado de brujer�a. Tyll se ve obligado a escapar junto a Nele, la hija del panadero.

Empieza as� un viaje a trav�s de un pa�s devastado por la Guerra de los Treinta A�os en el que Kehlmann teje con maestr�a una red de destinos conectados, un elenco de personajes fascinantes que protagonizan esta epopeya monumental y c�mica. Entre otros, un joven escritor que desea descubrir c�mo es realmente la guerra, un verdugo melanc�lico, un burro que habla, un m�dico poeta, un jesuita fan�tico, un sabio que falsific� los resultados de sus experimentos cient�ficos y Federico V e Isabel de Estuardo, los gobernantes exiliados de Bohemia cuyos errores desataron la guerra.

Con esta fusi�n de ficci�n hist�rica, picaresca y realismo m�gico que se lee como un entretenido libro �pico de aventuras, Daniel Kehlmann ha sido comparado con Umberto Eco y se ha situado como el nuevo embajador de la literatura alemana.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

LONGLISTED FOR THE 2020 MAN BOOKER INTERNATIONAL PRIZE

A major new novel by Daniel Kehlmann.

The vagrant, actor, entertainer and provocateur Tyll Ulenspiegel is born in the early 1600s. Tyll's father, a miller, is also a magician and explorer, and soon arouses the ire of the village churchmen. Tyll is forced to flee, accompanied by Nele, the baker's daughter. During his travels through a country devastated by the Thirty Years' War he meets both ordinary people and great souls. These include the young academic and writer Martin von Wolkenstein, who's dying to find out what war is really like; the melancholic executioner Tilman; Pirmin, the juggler; Origines, the talking donkey; the exiled rulers of Bohemia, Elizabeth and Friedrich, whose mistakes sparked this great war; the doctor Paul Fleming, whose bizarre plan is to write poems in German; and, not least, the fanatical Jesuit Tesimond and Athanasius Kircher, the renowned sage whose biggest secret is that he forged the startling results of his scientific experiments. Their stories come together in a spellbinding narrative, and an epic re-imagining of the Thirty Years' War. And who should this violent whirlwind envelop in its fury if not Tyll, the well-known prankster who one day decides to become immortal?

"My favourite German novelist." Ian McEwan, Sunday Times
