Description


«Se sorprendi a's mismo dici ndose en voz alta: "Ella realmente me ama". Amaya me ama? No, Amaya no es de las que aman.

Ashby Egbert, joven perteneciente a la clase acomodada, sufre un accidente y es internado en un hospital p blico. Ah empieza a conocer un mundo de cuya existencia no ten a idea y a entablar relaciones con personajes que le tender n la mano como si fuera uno de ellos. Al salir, l ya ser otro: tendr una visi n m's cr tica y social, desde la que encontrar su verdadero motor: Amaya Chacel. Ella llegar a su vida para darle un nuevo giro. La entrega absoluta, la creencia en ideolog as y las ganas de cambiar la realidad har n que Egbert sea capaz de dejarlo todo y quedarse, si es necesario, sin nada.

A veinticinco a os de su publicaci n, Paseo de la Reforma no pierde vigencia y la escritura de Elena Poniatowska constata su frescura, su sentido del humor, su habilidad para jugar con nosotros como lectores y de envolvernos en un M xico que pareciera que fue dorado en sus letras, pero que tambi n deja ver la frivolidad que las envuelve.

«En esta novela el dolor humaniza y lleva al tr nsito. ...] En ese tr nsito me parece que la obra hace alarde de un gran o do en relaci n a los di logos de los "de arriba" y los "de abajo". Del pr logo de Gabriela Jauregui

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

Ashby Egbert, a young man from wealthy upbringings, suffered an accident and was taken to the public hospital. While at the hospital he discovers a new world that he had no idea existed and begins to establish relationships with people who will reach out to help him as if he were one of them. When he leaves, he will be forever changed: he will have a more critical and social vision, from which he will find his true driving force: Amaya Chacel. She comes into his life to give it a new spin. His absolute devotion, his belief in ideologies, and his desire to change reality will make Egbert consider leaving everything behind if necessary.

Twenty-five years after its publication, Paseo de la reforma continues to be as relevant as ever. Elena Poniatowska's writing confirms her freshness, her sense of humor, her ability to play with us as readers, and to take us into a Mexico that seems to have been golden, but one that also reveals the frivolousness that surrounds it.

«In this novel, pain makes us human and takes us to task. ...] All throughout, this work seems to give great importance to the dialogues between those "at the top" and those "at the bottom". --From the prologue by Gabriela Jauregui.
