Shifting viewpoints, magic realism, and narrative mastery are all integral parts of "Nostalgia," Romanian author and perennial Nobel Prize favorite Mircea Cartarescu's masterpiece. The book is comprised of five unrelated stories: "The Roulette Player," in which a desperately unlucky man manages to amass a fortune by taking part in dangerous games of Russian roulette; "Mentardy" narrates the travails of a prepubescent messiah who loses his powers with the advent of his sexuality; "The Twins," a brave exploration of youthful rage; "REM," in which a middle-aged woman falls in love with a university student in a nightmarish Bucharest; and "The Architect," in which a man who cannot silence his car horn becomes obsessed with sound--an obsession that will have cosmic consequences. Readers eager to acquaint themselves with one of the most important voices in modern European literature will not want to miss this sophisticated, haunting collection of stories. "Puntos de vista variables, el realismo magico y la maestria narrativa son facetas integras de "Nostalgia," la obra maestra del autor rumano y favorito perenne para el Premio Nobel, Mircea Cartarescu. El libro consta de cinco cuentos no relacionados: "El ruletista," en el que un hombre al que nunca le ha sonreido la suerte hace fortuna participando en letales sesiones de ruleta rusa; "El Mendebil," el cual narra los infortunios de un mesias impuber que pierde sus poderes magicos con el advenimiento de su propia sexualidad; "Los gemelos," una bizarra exploracion de la ira juvenil; "REM," en el cual una mujer de mediana edad se enamora de un estudiante de instituto en una Bucarest pesadillesca; y "El arquitecto," en el cual un hombre que no logra silenciar el claxon de su coche se obsesiona con el sonido--una obsesion que tendra consecuencias cosmicas. El lector interesado en conocer a una de las voces mas importantes de la literatura europea moderna no se querra perder esta sofisticada, inolvidable coleccion de historias.
