Una sala llena de corazones rotos Audiobook

Una sala llena de corazones rotos

Author: Anne Tyler Narrator: Jorge Durán Release Date: January 2021

Una historia de amor contemporánea, por la ganadora de los premios Pulitzer, National Book Critics Circle y PEN/Faulkner «Una nueva joya de Anne Tyler. [...] No hay otro escritor capaz de crear a hombres tan interesantes y polifacéticos. [...] Su mejor novela en mucho tiempo.» The Guardian Es inevitable preguntarse qué le pasa por la cabeza a un hombre como Micah Mortimer. Vive solo, es reservado, su rutina está grabada en piedra. Todas las mañanas a las siete y cuarto se le ve salir a correr. Alrededor de las diez o las diez y media pega el cartel magnético de TECNOERMITAÑO en el techo de su Kia. Pero esta vida plácida vuela por los aires cuando Cassia, su pareja —Micah se niega a llamar «novia» a alguien de treinta y muchos—, le anuncia que van a echarla de su casa y un adolescente se planta ante su puerta alegando ser su hijo. La nueva novela de Anne Tyler ofrece una mirada íntima al corazón y la mente de un hombre que se ve obligado a ver el mundo con nuevos ojos. La crítica ha dicho... «Otra joya de Anne Tyler. Se ha ganado tantos aplausos en los últimos cincuenta años que cuesta dar con nuevos elogios, pero leyendo esta extraordinaria novela —¡su vigesimotercera!— caí en la cuenta de que no hay otro escritor o escritora capaz de crear hombres tan interesantes y polifacéticos. [...] Esta es su mejor novela en mucho tiempo.» The Guardian «Una novela deslumbrante. [...] Tyler es una observadora afilada y tierna de la sociedad, una Vermeer estadounidense.» Hamilton Cain, The Oprah Magazine «La mejor novela de Anne Tyler: un poderoso recordatorio de hasta qué punto necesitamos la conexión humana.» BookPage «Anne Tyler tiene los dones que todo gran novelista necesita: observación profunda, empatía, y un lenguaje directo y sorprendente. La suya es una bondad sin complejos. En estos momentos de sarcasmo, pavoneo, retuiteo y personajes visiblemente atormentados, deberíamos leer más a Tyler.» Amy Bloom, The New York Times Book Review «Si siempre hay una buena razón para celebrar una nueva novela de Tyler, esta vez nos obliga a descorchar la botella de champán. [...] Nadie como ella para lograr que las palabras brillen con humor y ternura The Boston Globe «Conmovedora. [...] Tyler tiene la rara habilidad de evocar lo ordinario con particularidad.» The New Yorker «Una de las novelistas más influyentes de su generación. [...] Sus libros se devoran de modo irresistible, son una pura maravilla técnica.» The Daily Telegraph «Te atrapa al momento; es desgarradora, divertida y redentora.» Booklist «Roza la perfección. [...] Tyler está en pleno apogeo.» Washington City Paper «Anne Tyler es capaz de lograr que hasta la vida en cuarentena parezca maravillosa. [...] A pesar de haber reducido nuestros rituales a lo esencial, seguimos siendo tan grandes, afectuosos, asustadizos y frustrantemente humanos como antes de que el mundo se parase. Una sala llena de corazones rotos nos lo recuerda de una manera delicada y conmovedora.» Vanity Fair

Redhead by the Side of the Road Audiobook

Redhead by the Side of the Road

Author: Anne Tyler Narrator: Macleod Andrews Release Date: April 2020

Brought to you by Penguin. From the bestselling author of A Spool of Blue Thread: an offbeat love story about mis-steps, second chances and the elusive art of human connection Micah Mortimer isn’t the most polished person you’ll ever meet. His numerous sisters and in-laws regard him oddly but very fondly, but he has his ways and means of navigating the world. He measures out his days running errands for work – his TECH HERMIT sign cheerily displayed on the roof of his car – maintaining an impeccable cleaning regime and going for runs (7:15, every morning). He is content with the steady balance of his life. But then the order of things starts to tilt. His woman friend Cassia (he refuses to call anyone in her late thirties a ‘girlfriend’) tells him she’s facing eviction because of a cat. And when a teenager shows up at Micah’s door claiming to be his son, Micah is confronted with another surprise he seems poorly equipped to handle. Redhead by the Side of the Road is an intimate look into the heart and mind of a man who sometimes finds those around him just out of reach – and a love story about the differences that make us all unique. © Anne Tyler 2020 (P) Penguin Audio 2020
