Milan Kundera - 1999-05-01 (publicado por primera vez en 1979)
Calificación de Goodreads
A brilliant work of fiction, exploring different aspects of modern existence in seven beautifully integrated parts. From the fading memory of a lost love to the erasure of "enemies" of communism from historical records, this novel is rich in stories, characters, and imaginative range. Written by a genius author who was once forbidden to publish in his home country, this new translation brings unmatched fidelity to his original work.

Cien años de soledad book cover
Cien años de soledad
Gabriel Garcia Marquez - 2003-06-24 (publicado por primera vez en 1967)
Calificación de Goodreads
"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 de nuestro siglo. 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 "boca a boca". La Real Academia Española y la Asociación de Academias de la Lengua Española presentan Cien años de soledad, una edición popular conmemorativa cuyo texto ha revisado el propio Gabriel García Márquez. A pesar del esmero con que el propio escritor corrigió las pruebas de la primera edición (Sudamericana, 1967), se deslizaron en ella indeseadas erratas y expresiones dudosas que editores sucesivos han tratado de resolver con mejor o peor fortuna. Un estudio comparativo detallado de cada caso ha permitido ahora presentar una propuesta razonada al propio autor, que ha querido revisar las pruebas de imprenta completas, enriqueciendo así esta edición con su trabajo de depuración y fijación del texto.
