Críticas

Praise for "1913"
"A fascinating new structure of writing... With exceptional wit and understanding, Illies shows the societal and cultural changes propelling man toward modern art, new thought processes and war."
--"Kirkus," STARRED REVIEW
"An utterly delicious treat or an ideal present for anyone even mildly interested in 20th-century art, music and literature....a sexy, comic and occasionally heartbreaking soap opera.... an irresistible book, excellently translated and packed with factoids and surprising encounters."
--Michael Dirda, "The Washington Post"
"Illies's stylish evocation of 1913 is thrilling entertainment for those who have heard it all before but wish to experience--one more time, perhaps--the bleary-eyed ecstasy that is the result of staying up all night reading a book in one sitting."
--"The Weekly Standard
"
"The rich range of subjects, the vibrancy of the writing, here translated by Whiteside and Searle, and the intimate details of the biographies all make this a fast-paced and engrossing read... Highly recommended.""
--"Library Journal," "STARRED REVIEW"
"
"Already an international bestseller, German author Florian Illies's "1913: The Year Before the Storm" is an absolute gem of a book. His snapshot approach to the year, recorded month by month, is the most original historical account I've come across . . . Illies' genius turn of phrase, beautifully retained by Shaun Whiteside and Jamie Lee Searle's elegant translation, can be found throughout . . . The entries read like history's footnotes, but as anyone who's read Freud knows, the footnotes always tell the best story." --Lucy Scholes, "The Observer"
"An entertaining and illuminating study." --Shirley Whiteside, "The Independent"
"A hugely enjoyable idiosyncratic month-by-month narrative, in which the frenzy of artistic activity in London, Paris, Vienna, Berlin, and Trieste is conveyed with vigour and humour." --Juliet Nicolson, "The Daily Telegraph"
"A vivid, richly textured book that chronicles a world crackling with talent, energy and foreboding. The pace and scale of activity is at times breathtaking . . . Illies' talent is to weave all this together in a way that keeps the reader with him." "--The Financial Times "
"This highly entertaining month-by-month account of 1913 . . . is rich in detail, humour and vivid pen portraits . . . "1913" is the best possible holiday read--or gift--as it is so enjoyable, yet the breadth of information and astute insight will prevent one feeling guilty of indulgence." --Eileen Battersby, "The Irish Times"
"Illies is as astute a researcher as he is an observer of the zeitgeist . . . Reads like something out of a magic realist novel." --"The Guardian"
"Illies shapes his material not as a scholar, but as a wordsmith, as a story-teller with a strong sense for dramatic effect and composition . . . The most enjoyable book I've read in years." --"Die Welt"

Reseña del editor

Los primeros años del siglo XX fueron un período especialmente fructífero para la creatividad humana. Europa era un hervidero de nuevas ideas y tendencias que surgían por doquier. Política, ciencia, música, pintura, arquitectura, literatura: en todos los campos se ponían en entredicho los valores tradicionales, y el sentimiento general era de cambio y revolución, un tiempo en el que todo parecía posible. En este original relato, el historiador y periodista Florian Illies nos transporta cien años atrás para describirnos qué pensaban y cómo actuaban algunos de los protagonistas de la escena europea a lo largo de 1913. Proust busca el tiempo perdido, Freud desnuda almas en su diván, Stravinski celebra la primavera, Kafka, Joyce y Musil toman el mismo día un café en Trieste... Y en el parque del castillo de Schönbrunn, Hitler y Stalin se pasean en lo que será su único encuentro. Así pues, el triunfo y la melancolía se funden, todo es pulsión creativa, pero, a su vez, el ser humano parece haber perdido la inocencia y, de alguna manera, se intuye el abrupto declive que se avecina. Después de 1913, claro está, Europa se precipita en el abismo. Con un estilo elegante y un fino sentido del humor, Florian Illies ha reunido un fascinante catálogo de anécdotas, apuntes, citas y extractos de diarios y otros textos de la época para recrear con extraordinaria naturalidad la magia y la emoción de un momento clave de la cultura europea, con múltiples ecos en nuestro comprometido presente. Contra todo pronóstico para un libro de esta naturaleza, 1913. Un año hace cien años ha conquistado el número uno de las listas de libros más vendidos en Alemania, donde se mantiene hasta la redacción de estas líneas
