ISBN: 978607421197

A Spanish translation of Thomas Pynchon's novel "Against the Day" (2006), which recreates a decaying world, that goes from the Universal Exposition of Chicago from 1893 to the years after the First World War. Hundreds of interlocking plots move the reader from labor disputes in the Colorado mines to New York finisecular, to later walk through London and Göttingen, Venice and Vienna, the Balkans, revolutionary Mexico, postwar Paris or Hollywood of the was silent film. And through a maze of palaces and brothels, alleys and deserts, there is a motley gallery of characters: anarchists, aeronauts, tahures, talking dogs, mad scientists, seers and spies, who rub shoulders with real people like Bela Lugosi or Groucho Marx.
