El primer thriller del fenómeno mundial autor de La verdad sobre el caso Harry Quebert y El libro de los Baltimore. Un relato con el que desconcertó al jurado de un concurso de literatura juvenil.

En una preciosa edición ilustrada por David de las Heras.

A los diecinueve años Joël Dicker se presentó a un concurso literario juvenil con su relato largo El tigre. Más tarde, la presidenta del jurado le confesaría que lo habían desestimado porque no parecía creíble que una persona tan joven lo hubiera escrito. Ocho años después, Dicker obtuvo el Gran Premio de la Academia Francesa y el Premio Goncourt des Lycéens con La verdad sobre el caso Harry Quebert, que se convirtió en un fenómeno literario.

En este primer gran relato, deudor de sus admirados clásicos rusos y anglosajones, Dicker se enfrenta ya a sus temas preferidos (dilemas existenciales, las grandes preguntas, la violencia y la posibilidad de redención) y demuestra su extraordinaria capacidad de atraparnos con una historia poderosa y unos personajes que se graban a fuego.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

The first thriller by the phenomenon that is Joël Dicker, author of La verdad sobre el caso Harry Quebert/The Truth About the Harry Quebert Affair and El libro de los Baltimore/ The Baltimore Boys. This is a story with which he stunned the jury of a Young adult literary award, beautifully illustrated by David de las Heras.

When he was nineteen, Joël Dicker sent in his work, El tigre to a literary award. Later, the president of the jury confessed that the jury had not taken his work into consideration because it seemed unreal that someone so young could have written such a story. Eight years later, Dicker received the Great Award by the French Academy, and the Goncourt des Lycéens Award with La verdad sobre el caso Harry Quebert/The Truth About the Harry Quebert Affair which has since become a literary phenomenon.

In this great first story, inspired by the great Russian and American classics, Dicker begins to dive into and play with his favorite themes (existentialism, life’s important questions, violence, and the possibility of redemption) and he exhibits his great ability to capture the reader with a powerful story and greatly developed characters.
