César Miranda, empleado de una gran empresa, es un hombre en crisis que intenta sobrevivir a las tormentas y tormentos de una competitividad desenfrenada. Y su peripecia nos va dibujando el implacable pero divertidísimo retrato de la disparatada sociedad en que vivimos."--Back cover

La loca de la casa by Rosa Montero( Book )

34 editions published between 2003 and 2015 in Spanish and English and held by 231 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
