Te trataré como a una reina by Rosa Montero( Book )

90 editions published between 1983 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 220 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Por el Desiré desfilan los sueños y realidades de un elenco de personajes memorables encabezado por Bella, cantante de boleros; Poco, un viejo enigmático de origen incierto; la solterona y cándida Antonia y su hermano Damián. Sus vidas son una demostración imponente de la distancia, a veces insalvable, que media entre los deseos de felicidad y las posibilidades reales de alcanzarla. Como el anverso y el reverso de un bolero, esta sobrecogedora novela juega con una contraposición: sobre el espacio urbano degradado de un local nocturno madrileño, el Desiré, se proyecta la postal pintarrajeada de un improbable y suntuoso Tropicana, el legendario club cubano en sus mejores tiempos, convertido en mito y refugio de un puñado de soñadores. Te trataré como a una reina, la tercera novela de Rosa Montero, puede ser vista como una farsa negra y como una tragedia rosa. La fuerza e intensidad con que está narrada, la contundencia de personajes que pueden tocarse, permiten ver, con ácida verdad, un mundo desportillado que descubre la soledad de todos, bajo los falsos colores de una pintura que se resquebraja

El peso del corazón by Rosa Montero( Book )

19 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in Spanish and English and held by 197 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Contratada para resolver un caso a primera vista sencillo, la detective Bruna Husky se enfrenta a una trama de corrupción internacional. En un futuro en el que la guerra está supuestamente erradicada, Bruna lucha contrarreloj por la libertad y en defensa de la vida, mientras asimila los sentimientos contradictorios que le produce hacerse cargo de una niña pequeña. Bruna Husky es una superviviente capaz de todo que se debate entre la autosuficiencia y la desesperada necesidad de cariño; una fiera atrapada en la cárcel de su corta vida. El peso del corazón es un thriller, una novela de aventuras política y ecológica, de fantasía y ciencia ficción, un relato mítico, un cuento para adultos, una reflexión sobre la creación literaria, una metáfora sobre el peso de la vida y la oscuridad de la muerte ... ¡Y una historia de amor! Rosa Montero regresa al mundo fascinante que creó en Lágrimas en la lluvia y nos sorprende de nuevo con esa potencia narrativa que ha convertido a Bruna Husky en una protagonista legendaria."--Page 4 of cover
