Summary

¿Qué pasiones o ideales mueven al ser humano y lo arrastran hasta su propia muerte? Esta parece ser la pregunta que se hace Carlos Fuentes al reflexionar acerca de la vida y la muerte de la actriz Diana Soren.

Tan solitaria como bella, tan fuerte como vulnerable, Diana Soren es una mujer que encierra en su persona, y en el apasionado episodio erótico que vive con un escritor mexicano, los ideales de toda una generación, la de los años sesenta, cuando las ilusiones de una década se resistían a morir.

En Diana o la cazadora solitaria, Carlos Fuentes resume la historia de toda una época, por medio de la revisión nostálgica de su breve y desgraciado romance con la actriz Jean Seberg.

"Quiero ser muy franco en este relato y no guardarme nada. Puedo herirme a mí mismo cuanto guste. No tengo, en cambio, derecho de herir a nadie que no sea yo, a menos, en todo caso, de que primero me entierre yo mismo el puñal que, amorosamente, acabo compartiendo con otra. Señalo, de arranque, los temores que me asaltan. Trato de justificar sexo con literatura y literatura con sexo. Pero el escritor —amante o autor— al cabo desaparece. Si grita, se desintegra. Si suspira, se funde. Hay que ser consciente de esto antes de afirmar, por encima de todas las cosas, que la vida nunca es generosa dos veces." —Carlos Fuentes

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

This is an exploration of love, lust, and betrayal. Mexico's preeminent novelist presents a poignant story of bittersweet love.
 
On New Year's Eve in 1969, a novelist in his forties meets the beautiful movie actress Diana Soren at a party and is fascinated by her oddly elusive charm. But in this novel from Carlos Fuentes, his infatuation turns into doomed pursuit as the fleeting object of his desire spurns him, and he is forced to reconsider the foundations of his life as a writer.
 
Diana, as the central character, is an elegy for a decade that refused to die. She is a predator set on self-destruction, and a casualty of her own times and beauty. Part novel, part expose, Diana: The Goddess Who Hunts Alone is a stirring portrait of a passionate affair amid the cultural chaos of the 1960s and 1970s.
