Una de las novelas fundamentales de la literatura del siglo XX.

PREMIO NACIONAL DE LAS LETRAS ESPAÑOLAS 2019

Obabakoak reúne las apasionantes historias de los habitantes del territorio de Obaba: el profesor de geografía que recuerda su extraña relación amorosa con una chica que solo conoce en sus cartas, la joven maestra que tiene que aprender a combatir la soledad a lo largo de un frío invierno, la relación de un canónigo con un niño perdido en el bosque, el escritor que da un giro a su vida cuando descubre un detalle asombroso en la ampliación de una vieja foto de la escuela...

Bernardo Atxaga hila con maestría todas estas historias, y las que nos cuentan sus personajes, para celebrar el poder de la palabra: las viejas cartas donde se consignan los secretos y las confesiones más íntimas, los recuerdos, los libros que nos llevan a otros lugares -las frías calles de Hamburgo, los verdes prados de Euskadi, la selva de la Amazonia- y que nos tienden una mano para rescatarnos de la soledad.

** Premio Euskadi.
** Premio de la Crítica.
** Prix Millepages.
** Premio Nacional de Narrativa.
** Adaptada al cine con el título Obaba, esta novela ha sido publicada en más de veinte países.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

One of the fundamental novels of twentieth century literature.

SPANISH NATIONAL BOOK PRIZE 2019

Obabakoak brings together the exciting stories of the inhabitants of the Obaba territory: the geography teacher who remembers his strange love affair with a girl he only knows from his letters, the young teacher who has to learn to fight loneliness during a cold winter, the relationship of a canon with a child lost in the woods, the writer who turns his life around when he discovers an amazing detail in the enlargement of an old school photo ...

Bernardo Atxaga masterfully spins all these stories, and those that his characters tell us, to celebrate the power of the word: the old letters where the secrets and the most intimate confessions are consigned, the memories, the books that take us to other places -the cold streets of Hamburg, the green meadows of Euskadi, the Amazon rainforest- and that give us a hand to rescue us from loneliness.

** Euskadi Award.
** Critics Award.
** Prix Millepages.
** National Narrative Award.
** Adapted to film with the title Obaba, this novel has been published in more than twenty countries.
