Los lectores de Ricardo Piglia conocen sin duda a Emilio Renzi, escritor y álter ego que aparece y reaparece en sus novelas, en ocasiones fugazmente, en otras con mayor protagonismo. ¿De dónde surge Renzi? De un juego de espejos que arranca del nombre completo del autor: Ricardo Emilio Piglia Renzi. Y ahora lo lleva un paso más allá con estos diarios que publica Piglia y firma Renzi. Tras una espléndida carrera literaria que incluye novelas y cuentos fundamentales de las letras argentinas contemporáneas y varios volúmenes de ensayos igualmente imprescindibles, el autor vuelve la vista atrás y rescata los diarios escritos a lo largo de más de medio siglo, entre 1957 y 2015, a los que se incorporan también algunos relatos y ensayos directamente vinculados con ellos. Este monumental proyecto se publicará en tres volúmenes: Años de formación, Los años felices y Un día en la vida, de los que el lector tiene en sus manos el primero, que cubre los años que van de 1957 a 1967 y arranca por tanto con un escritor en ciernes que tiene apenas dieciocho años. «¿Cómo se convierte alguien en escritor ?o es convertido en escritor?? No es una vocación, a quién se le ocurre, no es una decisión tampoco, se parece más bien a una manía, un hábito, una adicción, si uno deja de hacerlo se siente peor, pero tener que hacerlo es ridículo, y al final se convierte en un modo de vivir (como cualquier otro).» Asoman en estas páginas las primeras lecturas ?de Los hijos del capitán Grant de Verne a La peste de Camuso El oficio de vivir de Pavese, pasando por Defoe, Sterne, De Quincey, Gogol, Dostoievski, Kafka, Proust, Fitzgerald, Faulkner, Hemingway o Gadda?; asoman los cines y las películas que el joven autor devora ?de Bergman, Wilder, Visconti, Wajda y Godard, pero también alguna de James Bond?; asoma una geografía ?Adrogué, Mar del Plata, Buenos Aires? y asoma, claro, la vida: los amoríos iniciales; los estudios universitarios; los primeros entusiasmos, las primeras rebeldías y los primeros desengaños; los descubrimientos y deslumbramientos vitales y culturales; las rupturas amorosas y los trabajos de cobro incierto ?cuando pasa a ejercer de editor free lance después de que la universidad sea intervenida por los militares?; el mundillo cultural de la Argentina de entonces, con la sombra de los gigantes Borges y Cortázar, y los encuentros con Rodolfo Walsh, Haroldo Conti, Edgardo Cozarinsky, Daniel Moyano y el cineasta Leopoldo Torre Nilsson; la creación de los primeros cuentos y el proyecto de una novela. Todo ello anotado minuciosa, compulsiva, apasionadamente en estos diarios escritos por un maestro de la literatura argentina, o acaso por su álter ego.

A giant of contemporary Latin American literature, Argentine novelist Ricardo Piglia’s secret magnum opus was a compilation of 327 notebooks that he composed over nearly six decades, in which he imagined himself as his literary alter ego, Emilio Renzi. A world-weary detective, Renzi stars in many of his creator's works, much like Philip Roth's Nathan Zuckerman. But the Renzi of these diaries is something more complex—a multilayered reconstruction of the self that is teased out over intricate, illuminating pages. As Piglia/Renzi develops as a reader and writer, falls in love, and tussles with his tyrannical father, we get eye-opening perspectives on Latin America’s tumultuous twentieth century. Obsessed with literary giants—from Borges and Cortázar (both of whom he knew), to Kafka and Camus—The Diaries comprise a celebration of reading as a vital, existential activity. When Piglia learned he had a fatal illness in 2011, he raced to complete his mysterious masterwork as rumors about the book intensified among his many fans. First released in Spanish as a trilogy to tremendous applause, The Diaries of Emilio Renzi cements Piglia’s place in the global canon. “[A] masterpiece.… everything written by Ricardo Piglia, which we read as intellectual fabrications and narrated theories, was partially or entirely lived by Emilio Renzi. The visible, cerebral chronicles hid a secret history that was flesh and bones.” —Jorge Carrión, The New York Times “A valediction from the noted Argentine writer, known for bringing the conventions of hard-boiled U.S. crime drama into Latin American literature...Fans of Cortázar, Donoso, and Gabriel García Márquez will find these to be eminently worthy last words from Piglia.” —Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review “When young Ricardo Piglia wrote the first pages of his diaries, which he would work on until the last years of his life, did he have any inkling that they would become a lesson in literary genius and the culmination of one of the greatest works of Argentine literature?” —Samanta Schweblin, author of Fever Dream “Ricardo Piglia, who passed away earlier this year at age seventy-five, is celebrated as one of the giants of Argentine literature, a rightful heir to legends like Borges, Cortázar, Juan Jose Saer, and Roberto Arlt. The Diaries of Emilio Renzi is his life's work...An American equivalent might be if Philip Roth now began publishing a massive, multi-volume autobiography in the guise of Nathan Zuckerman…It is truly a great work...This is a fantastic, very rewarding read—it seems that Piglia has found a form that can admit everything he has to say about his life, and it is a true pleasure to take it in.” —Scott Esposito, BOMB Magazine “His death left us, his many Hispanic readers, feeling orphaned.” —Valeria Luiselli, author of The Story of My Teeth "Here through the Boom and Bolaño breech storms Ricardo Piglia, not just a great Latin American writer but a great writer of the American continent. Composed across his entire career, The Diaries of Emilio Renzi is Piglia's secret story of his shadow self—a book of disquiet and love and literary obsession that blurs the distinctness of each and the other." —Hal Hlavinka, Community Bookstore (Brooklyn, NY) “In this fictionalized autobiography, Piglia’s ability to succinctly criticize and contextualize major writers from Kafka to Flannery O’Connor is astounding, and the scattering of those insights throughout this diary are a joy to read. This book is essential reading for writers.” —Publishers Weekly “The Diaries of Emilio Renzi is a rare glimpse into the heart of twentieth-century Latin American literature, with the inimitable Ricardo Piglia as tour guide. More than just a traditional diary, Renzi is an illuminating voyage into the hearts of books and writers and history. An inspiring work and an important achievement.” —Mark Haber, Brazos Bookstore (Houston, TX) "The best Latin American writer to have appeared since the heyday of Gabriel García Márquez." —Kirkus Reviews “The great Argentine writer…. In a career that spanned four decades, during which he became one of Latin America’s most distinctive literary voices.” —Alejandro Chacoff, The New Yorker

Un día en la vida culmina la publicación de Los diarios de Emilio Renzi, que ponen un broche de oro a la producción literaria de uno de los escritores fundamentales de las letras latinoamericanas. Esta última entrega completa el autorretrato de Piglia a través del personaje interpuesto de su álter ego. Sigue aquí la exploración de un periplo vital y creativo, la indagación en la escritura y sus mecanismos, la reflexión sobre la literatura a través de lecturas muy diversas. Y asoman encuentros, películas, la convulsa situación política argentina, la tarea profesoral en Estados Unidos... Este volumen se divide en tres bloques: el primero, «Los años de la peste», es la última parte de los diarios de Renzi, fechada entre 1976 y 1982; el segundo, «Un día en la vida», es una narración en la que Renzi cede la palabra y se convierte en personaje contado en tercera persona, y el tercero, «Días sin fecha», reúne anotaciones de los últimos años, en las que se evocan instantes de felicidad, la última clase en Princeton y la aparición de la enfermedad que de modo lento pero implacable impone su ley. Se cierra, pues, de forma ya póstuma la aventura literaria de Emilio Renzi. Con ella Ricardo Piglia deja escrita una obra diarística destinada a convertirse en un clásico imprescindible del género en lengua castellana, que desde la publicación del primer volumen ha generado la reacción entusiasta de lectores y críticos.

The political history of the twentieth century can be viewed as the history of democracy’s struggle against its external enemies: fascism and communism. This struggle ended with the fall of the Berlin Wall and the collapse of the Soviet regime. Some people think that democracy now faces new enemies: Islamic fundamentalism, religious extremism and international terrorism and that this is the struggle that will define our times. Todorov disagrees: the biggest threat to democracy today is democracy itself. Its enemies are within: what the ancient Greeks called 'hubris'. Todorov argues that certain democratic values have been distorted and pushed to an extreme that serves the interests of dominant states and powerful individuals. In the name of ‘democracy’ and ‘human rights’, the United States and some European countries have embarked on a crusade to enlighten some foreign populations through the use of force. Yet this mission to ‘help’ others has led to Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo, to large-scale destruction and loss of life and to a moral crisis of growing proportions. The defence of freedom, if unlimited, can lead to the tyranny of individuals. Drawing on recent history as well as his own experience of growing up in a totalitarian regime, Todorov returns to examples borrowed from the Western canon: from a dispute between Augustine and Pelagius to the fierce debates among Enlightenment thinkers to explore the origin of these perversions of democracy. He argues compellingly that the real democratic ideal is to be found in the delicate, ever-changing balance between competing principles, popular sovereignty, freedom and progress. When one of these elements breaks free and turns into an over-riding principle, it becomes dangerous: populism, ultra-liberalism and messianism, the inner enemies of democracy.

A luminous, intensely moving tale that begins with a secret lovers’ assignation in the spring of 1924, then unfolds to reveal the whole of a remarkable life. Twenty-two-year-old Jane Fairchild has worked as a maid at an English country house since she was sixteen. For almost all of those years she has been the clandestine lover to Paul Sheringham, young heir of a neighboring house. The two now meet on an unseasonably warm March day—Mothering Sunday—a day that will change Jane’s life forever. As the narrative moves back and forth from 1924 to the end of the century, what we know and understand about Jane—about the way she loves, thinks, feels, sees, remembers—expands with every vividly captured moment. Her story is one of profound self-discovery, and through her, Graham Swift has created an emotionally soaring, deeply affecting work of fiction. From the Hardcover edition.

With this haunting first volume of his Into Their Labours trilogy, John Berger begins his chronicle of the eclipse of peasant cultures in the twentieth century. Set in a small village in the French Alps, Pig Earth relates the stories of skeptical, hard-working men and fiercely independent women; of calves born and pigs slaughtered; of summer haymaking and long dark winters f rest; of a message of forgiveness from a dead father to his prodigal son; and of the marvelous Lucie Cabrol, exiled to a hut high in the mountains, but an inexorable part of the lives of men who have known her. Above all, this masterpiece of sensuous description and profound moral resonance is an act of reckoning that conveys the precise wealth and weight of a world we are losing.

A suspicious death, a pregnant woman suddenly gone missing: Quirke's latest case leads him inexorably toward the dark machinations of an old foe Perhaps Quirke has been down among the dead too long. Lately the Irish pathologist has suffered hallucinations and blackouts, and he fears the cause is a brain tumor. A specialist diagnoses an old head injury caused by a savage beating; all that's needed, the doctor declares, is an extended rest. But Quirke, ever intent on finding his place among the living, is not about to retire. One night during a June heat wave, a car crashes into a tree in central Dublin and bursts into flames. The police assume the driver's death was either an accident or a suicide, but Quirke's examination of the body leads him to believe otherwise. Then his daughter Phoebe gets a mysterious visit from an acquaintance: the woman, who admits to being pregnant, says she fears for her life, though she won't say why. When the woman later disappears, Phoebe asks her father for help, and Quirke in turn seeks the assistance of his old friend Inspector Hackett. Before long the two men find themselves untangling a twisted string of events that takes them deep into a shadowy world where one of the city's most powerful men uses the cover of politics and religion to make obscene profits. Even the Dead--Benjamin Black's seventh novel featuring the endlessly fascinating Quirke--is a story of surpassing intensity and surprising beauty.
