Description
El gran clasico por excelencia de la literatura norteamericana.
Todo el mundo conoce a Tom Sawyer y Huck Finn, dos de los grandes personajes de ficcion de todos los tiempos que ya son patrimonio de la humanidad, mas alla de su creador, Mark Twain.
La critica considera esta novela no solo la culminacion del arte narrativo de Twain sino la gran obra maestra, junto a "Moby Dick," de la narrativa norteamericana. Estamos pues ante un texto fundacional, un clasico entre clasicos que constituye ademas una lectura deliciosa.
Mark Twain, con su sentido del humor y su pluma agil, precisa, virtuosa y envolvente nos lleva rio Mississippi abajo de la mano de Huck Finn, que va en busca de la libertad junto a Jim, un negro que busca escapar de la esclavitud.
Novela sobre la amistad, la adolescencia y la libertad, esta edicion de "Las aventuras de Huckleberry Finn" se abre con un prologo del gran escritor chileno Roberto Bolano y va tambien acompanada de ilustraciones del dibujante norteamericano Edward Kemble.



About the Author
Samuel Langhorne Clemens (1835-1910), best known to the world by his pen-name Mark Twain, was an author and humorist, noted for his novels The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (1884), which has been called "the Great American Novel," and The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (1876, among many others.



Author of 2666 and many other acclaimed works, Roberto Bolano (1953-2003) was born in Santiago, Chile, and later lived in Mexico, Paris, and Spain. He has been acclaimed "by far the most exciting writer to come from south of the Rio Grande in a long time" (Ilan Stavans, The Los Angeles Times)," and as "the real thing and the rarest" (Susan Sontag). Among his many prizes are the extremely prestigious Herralde de Novela Award and the Premio Romulo Gallegos. He was widely considered to be the greatest Latin American writer of his generation. He wrote nine novels, two story collections, and five books of poetry, before dying in July 2003 at the age of 50.
