N. K. Jemisin, la tres veces ganadora del Premio Hugo a la mejor novela y superventas del New York Times, nos trae La ciudad que nos unió, una historia revolucionaria de cultura, magia y mitos en la Nueva York actual.

En Manhattan, un joven estudiante de posgrado sale del tren y se da cuenta de que no recuerda quién es, de dónde viene ni su nombre. Pero sí que es capaz de sentir el latir del corazón de la ciudad, ver su historia y percibir su poder.

En el Bronx, la directora lenape de una galería de arte encuentra unos extraños grafitis que adornan toda la ciudad, tan maravillosos y poderosos que se podría decir que la pintura la llama, literalmente.

En Brooklyn, una madre y política descubre que oye las canciones de la ciudad, que resuenan al ritmo de los tacones de sus Louboutin.
Y no son los únicos.

Toda gran ciudad tiene un alma. Algunas son tan antiguas como los mitos, y otras, tan nuevas y destructivas como los niños. Nueva York tiene seis...

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

On the Time magazine 100 must-read books of 2020.

"A glorious fantasy."--Neil Gaiman


Three-time Hugo Award-winning and New York Times bestselling author N.K. Jemisin crafts her most incredible novel yet, a story of culture, identity, magic, and myths in contemporary New York City.


In Manhattan, a young grad student gets off the train and realizes he doesn't remember who he is, where he's from, or even his own name. But he can sense the beating heart of the city, see its history, and feel its power.

In the Bronx, a Lenape gallery director discovers strange graffiti scattered throughout the city, so beautiful and powerful it's as if the paint is literally calling to her.

In Brooklyn, a politician and mother finds she can hear the songs of her city, pulsing to the beat of her Louboutin heels.


And they're not the only ones.

Every great city has a soul. Some are ancient as myths, and others are as new and destructive as children. New York? She's got six.
