A world for Julius : a novel by Alfredo Bryce Echenique( Book )

230 editions published between 1970 and 2014 in 7 languages and held by 1,662 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""Julius was born in a mansion on Salaverry Avenue, directly across from the old San Felipe Hippodrome." Life-size Disney characters and cowboy movie heroes romp across the walls of his nursery. Out in the carriage house, his great-grandfather's ornate, moldering carriage takes him on imaginary adventures. But Julius' father is dead, and his beautiful young mother passes through her children's lives like an ephemeral shooting star. Despite the soft shelter of family and money, hard realities overshadow Julius' expanding world, just as the rugged Andes loom over his home in Lima."--BOOK JACKET. "This lyrical, richly textured novel, first published in 1970 as Un mundo para Julius, opens new territory in Latin American literature with its focus on the social elite of Peru. A member of that elite, Bryce Echenique incisively charts the decline of an influential, centuries-old aristocratic family who become nouveaux riches with the invasion of foreign capital in the 1950s. A World for Julius, his first novel, marks the first appearance in English of this important Peruvian writer, whose Latin American postmodern fiction has won critical acclaim throughout the Spanish-speaking world."--BOOK JACKET

21 editions published between 1968 and 2014 in Spanish and English and held by 181 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Alfredo Bryce Echenique is one of the most widely read and most widely translated Latin American authors of recent decades, yet this is the first critical edition to make his work available to students of Hispanic literatures in the English-speaking world. Combining humour and informal language to explore adolescence in middle-class Peru, this edition provides ready points of engagement for young (and not-so-young) adults. The stories and main themes are explained and analysed through a critical introduction, comprehensive notes and vocabulary prepared by one of the leading international scholars of the author's work." "Huerto cerrado offers an ideal point of entry to many of the key themes of contemporary Latin American literature, such as the concern with youth and popular culture, issues relating to sexuality, and challenges to dominant social and political structures. This edition is aimed primarily at those studying Spanish at school or at university, for whom it offers insights not only into contemporary Peru and the relationship between that country's society and its literature, but also the work of one of the continent's outstanding literary voices."--BOOK JACKET

"Los personajes de este libro son seres especialmente frágiles a quienes el festín de la vida y sus vicisitudes confrontan con la desilusión y el fracaso; una galería de seres desdichados que deben hacer frente a situaciones límite y al desamparo que los acechan. Serán entonces el humor y la ironía las armas que, en más de una ocasión, les permitirán sobrellevar el desencanto. ¿Son acaso el humor y la ironía la mejor fórmula para conjurar el infortunio? Esta es una de las tantas preguntas que nos lleva a plantearnos la lectura de estos vibrantes cuentos que, sin duda, conmoverán a más de un lector." --
