Most widely held works by Eduardo Lago
Llámame Brooklyn by Eduardo Lago( Book )
44 editions published between 2006 and 2016 in 9 languages and held by 556 libraries worldwide
Through an ingenious structure that jumps from narrator to narrator and spans decades, Call Me Brooklyn follows the life of Gal Ackerman, a Spanish orphan adopted during the Spanish Civil War and raised in Brooklyn, NY. Moving from the secret tunnels that shelter the forgotten residents of Manhattan to the studio where Mark Rothko put an end to his life, from the jazz clubs frequented by Thomas Pynchon to the bar in Madrid where we learn the truth about Ackerman's past, Call Me Brooklyn draws upon a rich tradition that includes Nabokov's Pale Fire, Bellow's Humbolt's Gift, and the novels of Felipe Alfau--a hymn to mystery and to the power of fiction
Drown by Junot Díaz( Book )
9 editions published between 1997 and 2010 in Spanish and held by 389 libraries worldwide
"Junot Díaz hizo su entrada en la escena literaria con esta colección de diez relatos que se desplazan de los barrios de la República Dominicana a los suburbios de Nueva Jersey. Díaz, que según Newsweek combina «la mirada objetiva de un periodista con el verbo de un poeta», evoca un mundo del que han desaparecido los padres, en el que las madres luchan con determinación por sus hijos, y en el que los más jóvenes heredan la crueldad y el avispado humor de unas vidas determinadas por la pobreza y la incertidumbre." --Descripción del editor
Ladrón de mapas by Eduardo Lago( Book )
14 editions published between 2008 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 97 libraries worldwide
"Un escritor lanza al anonimato de la red unos cuentos en los que propone un singular pacto de lectura. La joven Sophie acepta el reto y los relatos, enviados por correo electrónico, se despliegan ante sus ojos como mapas misteriosos, iniciándose así un viaje que le permitirá llegar al corazón de las tinieblas de donde surgen las historias que dan forma a nuestras vidas. De la mano de cineastas como Visconti y Orson Welles o escritores como Conrad, Kipling y Joyce, algunos de los cuales aparecen como narradores o personajes de los relatos que integran Ladrón de Mapas, Eduardo Lago propone a sus lectores un vertiginoso itinerario en el que vida y literatura se mezclan sin cesar. África, la India, o Rusia; París, Trieste o Nueva York son algunas de las escalas de un libro cuya cartografía es un compendio ejemplar del arte de contar historias, desde los modos característicos de la fabulación oral hasta las webstories que aparecen colgadas en el espacio virtual, pasando por las crónicas negras que recogen a diario los periódicos"--Page 4 of cover
Siempre supe que volvería a verte, Aurora Lee by Eduardo Lago( Book )
7 editions published in 2013 in Spanish and held by 51 libraries worldwide
Divertidísima, absorbente y absolutamente original, la nueva novela del autor de Llámame Brooklyn. Un escritor del New Yorker fascinado con la novela inacabada de Nabokov, cuyo borrador se publicó con el título El original de Laura, se obsesiona con la idea de averiguar hasta dónde podría haber llegado el escritor ruso de haber conseguido acabar la obra. Para ello, contrata a un escritor fantasma al que encarga un informe, informe que será el centro de una investigación que no por "literaria" deja de ser tan trepidante y peligrosa como la mejor novela negra. Novela de aventuras y sátirica, novela negra y velazqueña, novela metaliteraria y novela indagadora, la nueva obra de Eduardo Lago es una vuelta de tuerca a las preguntas contemporáneas acerca de la narratividad y de la ficción
