En este libro hay mas lecciones valiosas sobre el oficio de novelista que en cualquier facultad de literatura. Juan Gabriel Vasquez.

En septiembre de 1967, unos jovenes Gabriel Garcia Marquez y Mario Vargas Llosa se reunieron en Lima para hablar de literatura latinoamericana. El primero habia vendido ya miles de ejemplares de Cien anos de soledad. El segundo acababa de ganar el Premio Romulo Gallegos por La casa verde.

Hoy ambos son considerados universalmente dos de los maximos exponentes de la literatura en espanol, pero por aquel entonces eran dos jovenes que estaban empezando su carrera como novelistas. En Dos soledades se situan frente a frente dos escritores, dos genios literarios, dos maneras diferentes de entender la literatura, dos temperamentos en cierto modo contradictorios, dos formas distintas de narrar. Son los tiempos en que el boom se esta gestando, en los que todavia no se ha acunado nombre para lo que hoy conocemos como realismo magico . En estas paginas apasionantes, el lector asiste a una conversacion sin igual.

La edicion incorpora textos de Juan Gabriel Vasquez, Luis Rodriguez Pastor, Jose Miguel Oviedo, Abelardo Oquendo, Abelardo Sanchez Leon y Ricardo Gonzalez Vigil, quienes rememoran, la mayoria en calidad de testigos, aquel dialogo; y, ademas, dos entrevistas al escritor colombiano, una seleccion fotografica, y la valoracion que hace hoy Vargas Llosa de la vida y obra de Garcia Marquez.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

There are more valuable lessons about crafting a novel in this book than in any literature school. Juan Gabriel Vasquez.

In September of 1967, a young Gabriel Garcia Marquez and Mario Vargas Llosa met in Lima to discuss Latin American literature. The first had already sold thousands of copies of One Hundred Years of Solitude. The second had just won the Romulo Gallegos Award for The Green House.

Today both are universally considered two of the greatest examples of Spanish literature, but at that time they were two young people who were beginning their careers as novelists. In Dos soledades, two writers, two literary geniuses, two different ways of understanding literature, two somewhat contradictory temperaments, two different ways of narrating, are placed face-to-face. These were the times when the boom was brewing, when a name had not yet been coined for what we know today as magical realism. In these exciting pages, the reader witnesses a conversation like no other.

This edition incorporates texts by Juan Gabriel Vasquez, Luis Rodriguez Pastor, Jose Miguel Oviedo, Abelardo Oquendo, Abelardo Sanchez Leon and Ricardo Gonzalez Vigil, who recall, the majority as bystanders, that dialogue; and, in addition, two interviews with the Colombian writer, a selection of photographs, and Vargas Llosa's assessment of the life and work of Garcia Marquez today.
