Arthur Koestler (Spanish Edition) by Jorge Freire PDF

By Jorge Freire

Lo que aquí se cuenta constituye una de las grandes epopeyas del pasado siglo. En pocos años, Arthur Koestler (1905-1983) pasó de vender limonada en un bazar de Palestina a convertirse en uno de los intelectuales más controvertidos de su época. En el ínterin, bailó sobre el alambre, vivió romances breves y estrepitosos, vagabundeó, vio caer Málaga y París, sorteó embestidas y tempestades, espió y conspiró, sufrió detenciones y persecuciones, se jugó el pellejo en misiones secretas para los angeles Internacional Comunista y fue uno de los primeros en documentar los angeles intervención nazi en l. a. guerra civil española. Siempre en conflicto, incómodo en sus zapatos, trató de dar con el Absoluto a través de l. a. utopía, pero salió escaldado de todas las causas en que militó, y siguió caminando con paso firme por el filo de los angeles navaja hasta que Franco lo condenó a muerte. Fue entonces cuando, después de años moviéndose en círculos, asistió al momento más trascendental de su existencia. En una oscura celda de Sevilla, a l. a. espera de ser ejecutado, una experiencia mística lo atravesó de lleno, trastocándolo de raíz.

En palabras de Luis Alberto de Cuenca, «Jorge Freire es un joven ensayista con un estilo propio y una prosa elegante y cautivadora». Arthur Koestler. Nuestro hombre en España es el segundo libro de Jorge Freire (Madrid, 1985), una vertiginosa narración, a caballo entre el ensayo biografíco y el relato de espías, entre l. a. reconstrucción histórica y los angeles polémica filosófica, que se lee como una novela.
