Rosa Montero regresa al mundo fascinante que creó en Lágrimas en la lluvia y nos sorprende de nuevo con esa potencia narrativa que ha convertido a Bruna Husky en una protagonista legendaria"--Back cover
El amor de mi vida by Rosa Montero( Book )

12 editions published between 2011 and 2015 in Spanish and held by 176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rosa Montero nos sumerge en un mundo literario propio, intimo y universal a un tiempo, formado por grandes historias, heroes valientes, monstruos memorables, jovenes misteriosos o malvados geniales. En su original recorrido por grandes titulos de la literatura mundial como Las mil y una noches, La Regenta, El corazon de las tinieblas, Lolita o Frankenstein, nos descubre relatos desconocidos, biografias sobrecogedoras y autores excentricos. El irrefrenable amor por la literatura que contienen sus palabras es tan contagioso que este libro, que recoge textos publicados en El Pais entre 1998 y 2010, se convertira para muchos en una guia de lectura esencial, alejada de convencionalismos y capaz de ofrecer pistas al recien llegado pero tambien al mas avezado lector
La loca de la casa by Rosa Montero( Book )

33 editions published between 2003 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Un libro sobre la fantasia y los sueños, sobre la locura y la pasión, sobre los miedos y las dudas de los escritores, pero también de los lectores. Este libro es una novela, un ensayo, una autobiografia. "La loca de la casa" es la obra mas personal de Rosa Montero, un recorrido por los entresijos de la fantasía, de la creación artística y de los recuerdos mas secretos. Es un cofre de mago del que emergen objetos inesperados y asombrosos. La autora emprende un viaje al interior en un juego narrativo lleno de sorpresas. En el se mezclan literatura y vida en un cóctel afrodisiaco de biografias ajenas y autobiografia novelada. Y, asi, descubrimos que el gran Goethe adulaba a los poderosos hasta extremos ridículos, que Tolstoi era un energumeno, que Montero, de nina, fue una enana, y que, con veinte anos, mantuvo un estrafalario y desternillante romance con un famoso actor. Pero no deberiamos fiarnos de todo lo que la autora cuentasobre si misma: los recuerdos no son siempre lo que parecen. Un libro sobre la fantasia y los suenos, sobre la locura y la pasion, sobre los miedos y las dudas de los escritores, pero tambien de los lectores. La loca de la casa es, sobre todo, la torrida historia de amor y salvacion que hay entre Rosa Montero y su imaginacion
