Description

The #MeToo told from the head of Harvey Weinstein, its main villain: Emma Cline returns with a penetrating, funny and disturbing piece of information... Twenty-four hours prior the sentence of his trial, in a house in Connecticut, Harvey stands at dawn sweaty and restless, but full of confidence: this is America, and in America those like him are not condemned. There was people at time that turned their back on him, but those people were soon replaced by new people: and people who owed him favors, Harvey thinks, are still going to have to pay him back. They have tried to destroy his reputation, but have not succeeded, and that same day fate tells him how to finish restoring it.

Review Text

El #MeToo contado desde la cabeza de Harvey Weinstein, su villano principal: Emma Cline regresa con una pieza de cámara penetrante, divertida y perturbadora.

A veinticuatro horas de la sentencia de su juicio, Harvey amanece sudado e inquieto, pero repleto de confianza: esto es América, y en América a los que son cómo él no se los condena. Han tratado de acabar con su reputación sin conseguirlo, y él sabe cómo terminar de restaurarla; su vecino es el escritor Don DeLillo, y Harvey ya se ima­gina los neones: Ruido de fondo, la novela inadaptable, hecha película por fin. Y, sin embargo, el día que recorre este libro pronto empieza a llenarse de señales inquie­tantes, ominosas...

Con gran sutileza psicológica, Emma Cline narra este relato desde el lugar más incómodo: desde la mente de un Harvey Weinstein que aparece aquí como alguien frágil y necesitado, que sobrevalora su inteligencia y exhibe una megalomanía ridícula; alguien desgajado de una realidad, la de su condena, que se le va haciendo cada vez más aterradoramente visible, y en la que se filtran asunciones de una culpabilidad que su yo cons­ciente niega.
