The Neruda case by Roberto Ampuero( Book )

46 editions published between 2008 and 2015 in 7 languages and held by 1,011 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Published for the first time in English, an atmospheric, brilliant novel from an internationally bestselling literary luminary. Roberto Ampuero's novels starring the wonderfully roguish Cayetano Brule are an international sensation. In The Neruda Case, readers are introduced to Cayetano as he takes on his first case as a private eye. Set against the fraught political world of pre-Pinochet Chile, Castro's Cuba, and perilous behind-the-Wall East Berlin, this mystery spans countries, cultures, and political ideas, and features one of literature's most beloved figures--Pablo Neruda. Cayetano meets the poet at a party in Chile in the 1970s. The dying Neruda recruits Cayetano to help him solve the last great mystery of his life. As Cayetano fumbles around his first case, finding it hard to embrace the new inspector identity foisted upon him, he begins to learn more about Neruda's hidden agenda. Neruda sends him on a whirlwind expedition around the world, ending back in Chile, where Pinochet's coup plays out against the final revelations of their journey. Evocative, romantic, and full of intrigue, Ampuero's novel is both a glimpse into the life of Pablo Neruda as death approaches and a political thriller that unfolds during the fiercely convulsive end of an era"--

Pero Bruno no está dispuesto a perder a Fabiana. Decide realizar una búsqueda desesperada, en la que no sólo irá tras su mujer, sino tras la razón que explique su vida, la rutina en que cayó su matrimonio, los quiebres del amor y la pasión perdida. Fabiana, en cambio, huye de su marido y de sí misma, de la sombra de su pasado y de su origen en una Centroamérica exótica y violenta, llevando dolorosos secretos familiares a cuestas.

Detrás del Muro : novela de mi memoria imprecisa by Roberto Ampuero( Book )

5 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in Spanish and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"El Muro de Berlín se alza amenazante antes sus ojos. Lo precede la franja de la muerte, con un campo minado, perros, torres de vigilancia y alambradas que impiden a cualquier germano-oriental cruzar a Occidente. Es el socialismo real, un mundo en las antípodas de los sueños de un joven veinteañero e idealista. En este relato en primero persona la esperada continuación de Nuestros años verde olivo, Roberto Ampuero narra los años en que vivió en la República Democrática Alemana, adonde llegó huyendo de la dictadura chilena cuando era un militante de las JJCC de Chile. Allí se encontró con la solidaridad del gobierno comunista que le permitió vivir y estudiar y amar, pero asimismo, con un sistema represivo, atrasado en décadas económica y culturalmente, y que solo podía mantenerse en pie gracias al estado policial y a las tropas soviéticas allí estacionadas. Detrás del Muro es la historia de un joven que se desencantó de un sistema aplastante y jerárquico, en el que el individuo no valía demasiado. Y es una reflexión sobre la necesidad de defender la libertad y la dignidad del ser humano frente a las ideologías totalitarias
