Summary

El debut de un enigmático autor suizo: una fascinante historia de intriga y amor en el corazón de Grecia. Un juego borgeano de cajas chinas.

«Rey Rosa descubre con esta novela a un escritor sin huellas, ni sombra, ni casi referencias, pero autor de una historia insólita y poderosa donde pasión, tragedia y melancolía arden en todas direcciones. [...]. Si en literatura algo trae el eco de Rey Rosa, merece ser llamado literatura.» -Antonio Lucas

En Atenas, ciudad en la que Rodrigo Rey Rosa reside actualmente, Teodora Jaramillo de Quirós, una turista guatemalteca, reconoce a su compatriota y le presenta a su acompañante, Rupert Ranke, un hasta el momento desconocido autor suizo que llevará al autor de Severina y El material humano a su piso de la capital griega para incitarlo a editar este libro.

Hasta aquí la historia de un afortunado hallazgo editorial; vayamos ahora a la novela: Ranke, historiador de la cultura clásica y guía turístico, no tarda en quedar cautivado por el encanto de la bella Teodora, de viaje por Grecia con su marido, y su melancólica obsesión por El pequeño refugiado, una escultura de mármol que ha visto en el Museo Arqueológico de Atenas y que es el vivo retrato de su hijo, desaparecido misteriosamente a los cuatro años.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

The debut of an enigmatic Swiss author: a fascinating story of intrigue and love in the heart of Greece. A Borgean game of Chinese boxes.

“With this novel, Rey Rosa discovers a writer without traces, nor shadow, nor almost any references, but the author of an unusual and powerful story where passion, tragedy and melancholy burn in all directions. [...]. If something in literature echoes Rey Rosa, it deserves to be called literature.” Antonio Lucas

In Athens, the city where Rodrigo Rey Rosa currently resides, Teodora Jaramillo de Quirós, a Guatemalan tourist, recognizes her compatriot and introduces her to her companion, Rupert Ranke, a hitherto unknown Swiss author who will lead the author of Severina and The Human Material to his flat in the Greek capital to encourage him to edit this book.

So far the story of a lucky editorial find; let us now turn to the novel: Ranke, historian of classical culture and a tour guide, is soon captivated by the charm of the beautiful Theodora, traveling through Greece with her husband, and her melancholic obsession with The Little Refugee, a marble sculpture that she saw in the Archaeological Museum of Athens and that is the living portrait of her son, who mysteriously disappeared when he was four years old.
