Santa Evita by Tomás Eloy Martínez( Book )

155 editions published between 1995 and 2014 in 24 languages and held by 2,259 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bigger than fiction, Eva Peron was the poor-trash girl who reinvented herself as a beauty, snared Argentina's dictator, reigned as uncrowned queen of the masses, and was struck down by cancer. When her desperate but foxy husband brings Europe's leading embalmer to Eva's deathbed to make her immortal, the fantastical comedy begins
The Perón novel by Tomás Eloy Martínez( Book )

88 editions published between 1985 and 2016 in 7 languages and held by 1,372 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the author of the internationally acclaimed Santa Evita comes a dazzling fictional portrait of Juan Peron, the most revered -- and hated -- dictator in the history of Argentina. Following the ailing general from his return to his homeland after eighteen years of exile to his death scarcely a year later, Tomas Eloy Martinez has created a novel whose fantasy only heightens its humanity. For in The Peron Novel the mask of history is lifted to reveal a tragically hollow man who was born a follower until the moment he found himself transformed into a leader. The result is a tour de force, the most audacious and compelling meditation on absolute power since Gabriel Garcia Marquez's The Autumn of the Patriarch. -- Publisher description
The Tango singer by Tomás Eloy Martínez( Book )

44 editions published between 2004 and 2014 in 10 languages and held by 1,180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It is 2001, and inflation is spiraling out of control in Argentina as Bruno Cadogan, an American graduate student specializing in Borges, arrives in Buenos Aires. Cadogan is on the trail of Julio Martel, an elusive tango singer rumored to be even better than Carlos Gardel, the greatest singer of the 1920s and?30s. Martel has never recorded and his strange, powerful performances, at seemingly arbitrary sites around the city, are always unannounced. Cadogan finds lodging in a boarding house rumored to be the setting of the famous Borges story "The Aleph," and soon finds himself drawn into the tangle of legends surrounding the singer's life. As the economic tension grows and the city hovers on the verge of riots, Bruno begins to believe that Martel's increasingly rare performances are in fact far from random?that they instead form a map of the darkest moments in the city's past."--Publisher's description
Purgatory : a novel by Tomás Eloy Martínez( Book )

39 editions published between 2008 and 2015 in 6 languages and held by 953 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Simón Cardoso had been dead thirty years when his wife, Emilia Dupuy, spotted him at lunchtime in the lounge bar in Trudy Tuesday. So begins Purgatory. Simón, a cartographer like Emilia, vanished during a trip to map an obscure road in Argentina's back country. Later, testimonies suggested that he was one of the thousands of "subversives" arrested, tortured, and executed by the military regime. Yet Emilia, daughter of the regime's chief propagandist, has refused to accept this. She has spent her life longing for Simón to return, following elusive leads, never giving up hope. The husband who reappears to her, however, has not suffered those same years of uncertainty; for him, no time has passed at all.--From back cover

En un territorio dividido por una zanja construida un siglo antes -- una muralla china hacia abajo -- el paraíso no está en el mismo sitio para todos. Unas montañas amarillas esconden la felicidad; hay un río redondo de aguas púrpuras, una luna con lunas; un país sin mapas y un tiempo solitario y sin pasado, donde conviven vivos y muertos, recuerdos, sueños y realidades

Réquiem por un país perdido by Tomás Eloy Martínez( Book )

7 editions published in 2003 in Spanish and held by 191 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dos decadas atras, una ciudadanía hastiada de guerras, dictaduras, desapariciones, corrupcion e impunidad, celebraba en la Argentina el regreso de la democracia. El candidato que triunfaria en las elecciones solía recitar en el cierre de sus discursos de campana un fragmento del Preambulo de la Constitucion nacional. Tan poderosa era la ilusion renacida, tan firmes eran las esperanzas en el futuro. Veinte anos despues, es otra la Argentina que se nos revela. Un pais con filas interminables en las puertas de los consulados, vacio de casi todo menos de miseria, donde muchos -demasiados-, llevan tanto tiempo desvelados por sobrevivir que se han olvidado de vivir. De esas dos Argentinas habla este libro. Y de otras también, hechas con ficciones y espejismos, mitos, creencias y deseos, nostalgias, muertes y resurrecciones. Porque construir el futuro requiere comprender el presente y, sobre todo, dejar de negar el pasado

Tinieblas para mirar by Tomás Eloy Martínez( Book )

10 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in Spanish and held by 131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Escritos a lo largo de más de medio siglo, buena parte de ellos inéditos o nunca antes publicados en libro, los relatos aquí reunidos constituyen una síntesis del talento de Tomás Eloy Martínez y de los asuntos que lo asediaron toda su vida: los desgarramientos de la realidad argentina, el peronismo y sus emblemas, el exilio, la sexualidad y la muerte. Un fallido intento de intercambio de cadáveres ilustres -- los de Evita y Aramburu -- con la ayuda de un camión cisterna como vehículo y refugio; la vida de una mujer que despliega todos los días una coreografía en una estación de trenes neoyorquina; la semblanza irónica de un niño prodigio destruido por una madre posesiva; el enfrentamiento entre el ejército y unos obreros en las afueras de la ciudad de Tucumán poco después del '55, y las legendarias andanzas de dos asaltantes de la década del treinta son algunas de las historias que abordan estos cuentos. Al filo de la crónica periodística o lanzados a las más delirantes maquinaciones de la ficción, estos relatos brillan por su absoluta vigencia y confirman la dimensión literaria de un autor imprescindible." --

Argentina y otras crónicas by Tomás Eloy Martínez( Book )

4 editions published in 2011 in Spanish and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Tomás Eloy Martínez ha abordado la problemática argentina desde diversos enfoques, buscando las claves para comprender un país fundado por ficciones y sembrado de malentendidos. En la tradición de Martínez Estrada, comprende que el destino descolocado de la Argentina es consecuencia de un arraigado divorcio entre la realidad y el desco. De ahí que sus lecturas andan y desandan el camino que va de la ficción a la realidad. De la Revolución de Mayo al kirchnerismo, Tomás Eloy Martínez hace la crónica de mitos, nechos, conflictos, consensos y personajes, desde una mirada única que ilumina el pasado, dota de sentido el presente y ayuda a vislumbrar el futuro. Esta selección de más de sesenta artículos publicados en diferentes medios -- escritos entre 1991 y 2009 y parcialmente recogidos en libros anteriores --, configura una cartografía esencial para orientarse en un territorio signado por la contradicción y la violencia, en el contexto mayor de Latinoamérica y sus particularidades Argentina y otras crónicas da cuenta de una reflexión constante, profunda y comprometida, que Tomás Eloy Martínez desarrolló durante toda su vida y a través de toda su obra. Por medio de estos breve sy magistrales textos de lectura imprescindible, el lector podrá asomarse a la cosmovisión de uno de los mayores cronistras de la realidad nacional, fruto de una obsesión lúcida y persistente por aprehender aquello que nos constituye, nos habita y que, para bien o para mal, nos hace quienes somos."--Page 4 of cover
