Spionage - eine Waffe im Kalten Krieg. Der Aufstieg und Fall eines westlichen Geheimagenten. Wenn es nicht schreckliche Wahrheit waere, koennte der Inhalt dieses Buches eine James Bond Novelle darstellen. Die Anfaenge der nachrichtendienstlichen Taetigkeit des Autors, Werner Juretzko, gehen zurueck auf das Wirken der Gehlen Organisation zur Zeit der Gruendung der Bundesrepublik Deutschland 1949. Nach seiner Einschleusung in linksradikale Verbaende innerhalb West-Deutschlands sowie Berlin erfolgte seine Uebernahme in den G-2 US- Geheimdienst. Hier erstreckten sich die Aktivitaeten auf militaerische Spionage im Territorium hinter dem Eisernen Vorhang. Erst seine Festnahme 1955, waehrend einer seiner Missionen auf einer mecklinburgischen Sowjet-Flugbasis, beendete seine Spionagetaetigkeit. Die Einlieferung und die folgenden monatelangen, unmenschlich-grausamen Verhoere im beruechtigten, unterirdischen KGB/ STASI-Untersuchungsgefaengnis Berlin-Hohenschoenhausen waren nur der Anfang eines beginnenden Infernos. 1956 wird der Autor unter Ausschluss der Oeffentlichkeit in einem Gerichtsverfahren zu 13 Jahren Zuchthaus verurteilt und entging somit dem Schicksal einiger seiner Mitarbeiter, die Ihr Ende unter der Guillotine fanden.

El delirante y perturbador misterio de un impostor

El narrador vio por primera vez a aquel hombre en 1971 o 1972, cuando Allende era aún Presidente de Chile. Escribía poemas distantes y cautelosos, seducía a las mujeres y despertaba en los hombres una indefinible desconfianza. Volvió a verlo después del golpe, pero en ese momento ignoraba que aquel aviador, que escribía versículos de la Biblia con el humo de un avión de la Segunda Guerra Mundial y el poeta, eran uno, y el mismo. Y así nos es contada la historia de un impostor, de un hombre de muchos nombres, sin otra moral que la estética, dandy del horror, asesino y fotógrafo del miedo, artista bárbaro que llevaba sus creaciones hasta sus últimas y letales consecuencias.

Novela clave en la obra de Roberto Bolaño, Estrella Distante es, además de un apasionante thriller intelectual, una escalofriante investigación sobre la mentalidad fascista y sus efectos en la sensibilidad literaria.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

A chilling novel about the nightmare of a corrupt and brutal dictatorship.


The star of Roberto Bolano's hair-raising novel Distant Star is Alberto Ruiz-Tagle, an air force pilot who exploits the 1973 coup to launch his own version of the New Chilean Poetry, a multimedia enterprise involving sky-writing, poetry, torture, and photo exhibitions.

For our unnamed narrator, who first encounters this star in a college poetry workshop, Ruiz-Tagle becomes the silent hand behind every evil act in the darkness of Pinochet's regime. The narrator, unable to stop himself, tries to track Ruiz-Tagle down, and sees signs of his activity over and over again. A corrosive, mocking humor sparkles within Bolano's darkest visions of Chile under Pinochet. In Bolano's world there's a big graveyard and there's a big graveyard laugh. (He once described his novel By Night in Chile as a tale of terror, a situation comedy, and a combination pastoral-gothic novel.)

Many Chilean authors have written about the bloody events of the early Pinochet years, the abductions and murders, Richard Eder commented in the The New York Times: None has done it in so dark and glittering a fashion as Roberto Bolano.

Un éxito desde el mismo momento de su publicación en 1604, Don Quijote es una obra maestra no ya de la literatura española sino de la literatura universal. Cuenta la historia de este hidalgo quien, enloquecido por la lectura de libros de caballerías, recorre España espada en mano en busca de aventura, justicia y gloria. Las múltiples interpretaciones de esta historia son, simplemente, el reflejo de su riqueza de significados y contenidos: una crítica de las novelas de caballerías, la contraposición entre el realismo y el idealismo, la primera novela moderna o una sátira de las ilusiones caballerescas. Infinitas lecturas caben en las divertidas e increíbles andanzas del ingenioso hidalgo, que reflejan la complejidad de lo humano y muestran el arte literario en su más depurada expresión.
