Description
En 1913, el escritor norteamericano Ambrose Bierce se despidió de sus amigos con cartas en las que se declaraba viejo y cansado. Quería morir y escoger cómo. La enfermedad y el accidente le parecían indignas de él. En cambio, ser ajusticiado ante un paredón mexicano... Entró en México en noviembre y no se volvió a saber de él... ENGLISH DESCRIPTION In 1913, the celebrated American writer and journalist Ambrose Bierce sends farewell letters to his most intimate friends. Declaring himself old and tired, he goes out to seek his own death and mysteriously disappears into revolutionary Mexico. In this brilliant novel, Carlos Fuentes imagines the fate of Bierce among Pancho Villa's troops and dramatizes the conflict of North America's two cultures locked in deadly embrace.
