Description

Turkish writer Emin Kemal was in the midst of a career decline when he dies under strange circumstances. Implicated in the writer s death, his Spanish translator finds himself caught up in a plot that will force him to uncover his own past and the life of Emin Kemal in Istambul; and in the center stands an ambitious woman neither of them can escape. This novel by Premio Alfaguara Luis Leante is a carefully crafted house of mirrors, a disquieting tale of the role identity and literature play in our existence. It is a story of secrets and passions, of the love for books, for stories, for storytelling."

Quiero que se sepa la verdad y que cada uno reciba su premio o su castigo.»Un autor turco en el declive de su carrera muere en extrañas circunstancias. Su traductor al castellano se verá envuelto en la muerte del escritor y en una trama que lo obligará a destapar su propio pasado y el de Emin Kemal en Estambul. En la atmósfera de confusión flota la presencia oscura de Derya, esposa y amante.«Una novela que bebe de García Márquez, de la novela policíaca, del mejor Vargas Llosa, del cine, de política, religión... ¿Quién coño es este tío tan bueno?»DIEGO MEDRANO, La Voz de Avilés«Una historia apasionante que podría parecer increíble si no estuviera magistralmente contada.» ÁNGEL BASANTA, El Cultural
