Cien an?os de soledad Book
Cien an?os de soledad

Gabriel García Márquez

"Muchos años después, frente al pelotón de fusilamiento, el coronel Aureliano Buendía había de recordar aquella tarde remota en que su padre lo llevó a conocer el hielo". Con estas palabras empieza una novela ya legendaria en los anales de la literatura universal, una de las aventuras literarias más fascinantes del siglo xx. Millones de ejemplares de Cien años de soledad leídos en todas las lenguas y el Premio Nobel de Literatura coronando una obra que se había abierto paso a "boca a boca" --como gusta decir el escritor-- son la más palpable demostración de que la aventura fabulosa de la familia Buendía-Iguarán, con sus milagros, fantasías, obsesiones, tragedias, incestos, adulterios, rebeldías, descubrimientos y condenas, representaba al mismo tiempo el mito y la historia, la tragedia y el amor del mundo entero.

La historia de Esperanza es la de una joven intentando alcanzar su propio poder e inventar su propio futuro.

PREMIO NACIONAL DE CÓMIC 2008 PREMIOS GOYA 2012: mejor película de animación y mejor guión adaptado Paco Roca aborda en Arrugas temas delicados, hasta ahora escasamente tratados en historieta, como son el Alzheimer y la demencia senil. Y lo hace de un modo intimista y sensible, con algunos apuntes de humor pero sin caer en ningún momento en la caricatura. El aire de verosimilitud que se respira en el relato se ha visto propiciado por un cuidadoso trabajo de documentación. Paco Roca comenzó a recopilar anécdotas de los padres y familiares ancianos de sus amigos y visitó residencias de ancianos para saber cómo era la vida en ellas, un material de primera mano que le ha servido para estructurar una consistente ficción.
