Todo cuenta : del pasado remoto al futuro incierto by Saul Bellow( Book )

5 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in Spanish and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Una recopilación de ensayos, artículos, ponencias y apuntes de viaje de Saul Bellow que abarca, prácticamente, toda la vida del autor. Más de treinta textos publicados en revistas y periódicos en los que la astuta mirada de Bellow recoge desde un magnífico retrato de la ciudad de Chicago, la firma del tratado de paz entre Egipto e Israel, o impresiones sobre sus colegas, hasta una descripción de la sociedad española de posguerra. Pero es, sobre todo, su lamento por la pérdida de responsabilidad del novelista en la tarea de construir una literatura que sea vehículo de impresiones verdaderas lo que compone el corazón de este libro. Una crítica devastadora a sus contemporáneos que ejemplifica a la perfección el texto leído en la recepción del Nobel. Y como colofón, tres entrevistas en las que reflexiona sobre la lectura, la escritura, la enseñanza y la vida. Reseña: Frase a frase, página a página, Bellow es, simplemente, el mejor escritor que tenemos. The New York Times Book Review
