Publisher Description

Este libro contiene cinco grandes relatos: “Los pájaros”, “Bésame otra vez, forastero”, “El manzano”, “El joven fotógrafo” y “El viejo”. En todos ellos se nos presentan historias con obstáculos misteriosos y fatalistas, mujeres frustradas, tramas perversas y elementos cercanos a lo paranormal, en las que la realidad se construye con elementos fantasmagóricos. El ataque kamikaze y masivo de aves en una tranquila comunidad campesina, un amor perverso en medio de los bombardeos de la II Guerra Mundial, la frustración de un matrimonio burgués estéril, un romance entre dos personas con orígenes y aspiraciones muy distintas, o un siniestro amor tardío narrado con un realismo macabro; en todas estas narraciones afloran temores irracionales ocultos bajo el manto de un tranquilo acontecer cotidiano. Con el prólogo de Slavoj Žižek titulado “¿Se nos permite disfrutar todavía de Daphne du Maurier?”, un texto que revaloriza la obra corta de esta autora.

About the Author

Daphne du Maurier (1907–1989) was born in London, the daughter of the actor Sir Gerald du Maurier and granddaughter of the author and artist George du Maurier. She has been called one of the great shapers of popular culture and the modern imagination. She began writing in 1928, and many of her bestselling novels were set in Cornwall, where she lived for most of her life. Besides novels, du Maurier wrote plays, biographies, and several collections of short fiction. Among her more famous works are The Scapegoat, Jamaica Inn, Rebecca, and the short story “The Birds,” all of which were subsequently made into films, the latter three directed by Alfred Hitchcock.
