Synopsis
In this unsettling work about the alienating and at the same time liberating power of love, the monotonous existence of a book seller is rocked by the appearance of a consummate book thief who hopes to solve the enigma of her life through the stolen works. As in an obsessive dream where the limits between the rational and irrational become blurred, our main character is submerged in the mysterious circumstances surrounding Severina and the questionable relationship she sustains with her mentor, a man she introduces as her grandfather. Rodrigo Rey Rosa's latest creation confirms his privileged place in contemporary literature. To read him is to learn how to write and also an invitation to the sheer pleasure of letting oneself be swept away by sinister or fantastic tales. (Roberto Bolano)

Spanish Description: Una perturbadora historia de amor y misterio por uno de los autores ineludibles de la literatura latinoamericana contemporanea. Un delirio amoroso. Asi define su autor esta novela, en la que la monotona existencia de un librero se ve conmocionada por la irrupcion de una consumada ladrona de libros. Como en un sueno obsesivo en el que se difuminan las fronteras entre lo racional y lo irracional, el protagonista se va adentrando en las misteriosas circunstancias que rodean a Severina y en la equivoca relacion que mantiene con su mentor, a quien presenta como su abuelo, al tiempo que alimenta la esperanza de que la lista de libros sustraidos la ayudara a entender el enigma de su vida. Rodrigo Rey Rosa ha creado una novela perturbadora acerca del poder a la vez alienante y liberador del amor, que confirma su lugar de privilegio en la literatura contemporanea.
