About this product
- DescriptionEsta es la historia de Saleem Sinai, nacido en Bombay al filo de la mediache del 15 de agosto de 1947, en el momento mismo en que la India, entre fuegos artificiales y multitudes, alcanza su independencia. El desti de Saleem queda inexorablemente unido al de su pais, y sus peripecias personales reflejaran siempre la evolucion politica de la India o seran reflejadas por ella. Hijos de la mediache es una asombrosa vela que combina magistralmente magia y humor, compromiso politico, fantasia y humanidad. <b>La critica ha dicho...</b> Una de las grandes velas del siglo.ABC Salman Rushdie se ha ganado el derecho de ser designado u de nuestros mayores narradores.The Observer Hijos de la mediache vuelve a trazar el mapa literario de la India. Suena como un pais encontrando su voz propia.The New York Times <b>ENGLISH DESCRIPTION</b> Selected by the Modern Library as one of the 100 best vels of all time Winner of the Booker of Bookers Saleem Sinai is born at the stroke of midnight on August 15, 1947, the very moment of India's independence. Greeted by fireworks displays, cheering crowds, and Prime Minister Nehru himself, Saleem grows up to learn the omius consequences of this coincidence. His every act is mirrored and magnified in events that sway the course of national affairs; his health and well-being are inextricably bound to those of his nation; his life is inseparable, at times indistinguishable, from the history of his country. Perhaps most remarkable are the telepathic powers linking him with India's 1,000 other midnight's children, all born in that initial hour and endowed with magical gifts. This vel is at once a fascinating family saga and an astonishing evocation of a vast land and its people-a brilliant incarnation of the universal human comedy. Twenty-five years after its publication, Midnight's Children stands apart as both an epochal work of fiction and a brilliant performance by one of the great literary voices of our time.
