Abstract:

"In addition to an excellent storyteller, Jorge Edwards is also one of the best memorialists in the Latin American, as he has previously revealed in Persona non grata, where he chronicled his experience as a diplomatic representative in Cuba, and in The Purple Circles, the first installment of his memoirs that he now completes with this second volume, a vivid and luminous account of his formative years in mid-twentieth-century Chile, through which big names like Pablo Neruda, Nicanor Parra, Alejandro Jodorowski, Jose Donoso, and William Faulkner walk its pages.

The enthralling recollection of his formative years is intertwined with a critical view and reflection about the political illusions and dreams of his generation, one who would nourish the hopes of a socialist utopia. Raw, ironic, elegant, and precise, in this work Edwards celebrates an entire life dedicated to literature "and diplomacy" where he reflects on themes that will also help us understand our present."

"Además de un excelente narrador, Jorge Edwards, Premio Cervantes, es también uno de los mejores memorialistas del ámbito hispanoamericano, como ha demostrado, por ejemplo, en Persona non grata, la crónica de su experiencia como representante diplomático en Cuba, y en Los círculos morados, la primera entrega de sus memorias que ahora completa con este segundo volumen, Esclavos de la consigna, un relato vívido y luminoso de sus años de formación en el Chile de mediados del siglo xx, por el que desfilan personajes de la talla de Pablo Neruda, Nicanor Parra, Alejandro Jodorowski, José Donoso e incluso, fugazmente, William Faulkner.

La apasionante rememoración de sus años de formación está asimismo entreverada de un pensamiento crítico sobre las ilusiones políticas de su generación, cuando se alimentaba la esperanza de la utopía socialista. Cáustico, irónico, elegante y preciso, Edwards celebra en este libro toda una vida dedicada a las letras "y a la diplomacia" con unas reflexiones que también ayudan a entender nuestro presente."
