Description:

El lector tiene en sus manos una coleccion de relatos que viene precedida de una enorme expectacion. Su autor, seleccionado porNewsweekcomo uno de los diez nuevos rostros para el noventa y seis, nos transporta desde los pueblos y parajes polvorientos de su tierra natal, la Republica Dominicana, hasta los barrios industrials y el paisaje urbano de New Jersey, bajo un horizonte de chimeneas humeantes. La obra triunfal que marco el arranque literario de Junot Diaz puede ahora disfrutarse en una edicion en espanol que conserva en su integridad la fuerza desabrida y la delicadeza del texto original. Los ninos y jovenes que pueblan las paginas deNegociosgravitan sin sosiego por territorios marginales, a mitad de camino entre la inocencia y la experiencia, entre la curiosidad infantil y la crueldad mas descarnada. Criados en hogares abandonados por el padre, donde todo se sostiene gracias a la ferrea abegacion de la madre, estos adolescentes acarician suenos de independencia, asomandose con recelo a un mundo donde intuyen que no hay un lugar reservado para ellos. En estos diez relatos la prosa de Junot Diaz oscila con sabiduria entre el humor, la desolacion y la ternura, desplegando en cada pagina un estilo palpitante de vida.
