Book Description:
Refreshing, comic, and sublime…The conquest in this novel, a game played by one writer and his readers, captivates, drawing us in through the seductive power of a monumental young author. Laura Esquivel, bestselling author of Like Water for Chocolate and Malinche Intoxicating&hellip,Ill be thinking of these characters, what they longed to create and what they managed to despoil, for a long time. Helen OyeyemiA retelling of a fantastical true story: two young men seduce Nobel laureate Juan Ram&oacute,n Jim&eacute,nez with the words of an imaginary woman and inspire one of his greatest love poems. Jos&eacute, G&aacute,lvez and Carlos Rodr&iacute,guez are poets. Or, at least, theyd like to be. Sons of Limas elite in the early twentieth century, they scribble bad verses and read the greats: Rilke, Rimbaud, and, above all others, Juan Ram&oacute,n J&iacute,menez, the Spanish Maestro. Desperate for J&iacute,menezs latest work, unavailable in Lima, they decide to ask him for a copy.Theyre sure J&iacute,menez wont send two dilettantes his book, but he might favor a beautiful woman. They write to him as the lovely, imaginary Georgina Hbner. J&iacute,menez responds with a letter and a book. Elated, Jos&eacute, and Carlos write back. Their correspondence continues, as the Maestro falls in love with Georgina, and the boys abandon poetry for the pages of J&iacute,menezs life.
