Novela calificada por Mario Vargas Llosa como "una de las mas acabadas que haya producido la lengua espanola", EL REINO de ESTE MUNDO recrea de forma incomparable los acontecimientos que, a caballo entre los siglos xviii y xix, precedieron y siguieron a la independencia haitiana. Estimulado por la prodigiosa historia original y valiendose de un magistral dominio de los recursos narrativos, Alejo Carpentier alumbro en su palacio de Sans-Souci y la ciudadela de La FerriÃ<U+00A8>re arquitecturas dignas de Piranesi. --Los editores

Concierto barroco by Alejo Carpentier ( Book )
124 editions published between 1974 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 1,254 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
En esta novela deliciosa, propositiva y liberadora, el autor utiliza los recursos propios del barroco: la parodia, el artificio y la enumeración proliferante; rompe con las ataduras de la cronología histórica y adquiere un extraordianrio sentido del humor. El libro cuenta la historia de la puesta en escena de una ópera de Antonio Vivaldi, estrenada en el teatro Sant'Angelo de Venecia, en el otoño de 1733, la cual narra la derrota de Moctezuma por las fuerzas españolas que capitanea Hernán Cortés. El tema no puede ser más propicio para la pluma de Carpentier, pues se trata de una ópera barroca, que permite además, enfrentar dos historias, dos culturas, dos mundos -América y Europa-, de cuya contraposición surge, en la óptica carpenteriana, precisamente lo real maravilloso. Novela que da cuenta del gusto del autor por la música, una segunda vocación que, junto a la arquitectura, subyace en toda su obra y que ya se había manifestado con singular vehemencia en Los pasos perdidos
El recurso del método : novela by Alejo Carpentier ( Book )
156 editions published between 1974 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 1,176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The use of the method, a complex work, written in sumptuous language, mounted on a monologue, at the time had a very enthusiastic reception by the public and critics, as evidenced by its many editions, which already exceed thirty excluding foreign languages. Most critics acknowledged the significant achievement, a historical and political novel whose virtues were the authenticity of the narrative world parody, now of the proposal and the level of formal experimentation."--Lectorum.com.mx

In this orgy of voodoo, race hatred, madness, and erotomania, Alejo Carpentier records the destruction of King Henri Christophe's black regime, which was built on the same corruption and contempt for human life that brought down French rule while embodying its same hollow grandeur of false elegance attained only through slave labor

In a nameless, Havana-like city, an anonymous man flees a team of shadowy, relentless political assassins, and ultimately take refuge in a symphony auditorium during a performance.

Reasons of State opens in Paris just before the outbreak of World War I. There, a plump Latin American head of state enjoys the city's pleasures, both carnal and aesthetic. A telegram announcing a coup calls him home to a radically different landscape. As Cuba-born Carpentier charts the dictators career--his increasingly severe reprisals, his country's passage from boom to slump, his confrontations with liberal rebels, and finally Marxist revolutionaries--an incisive portrait of political power emerges
