Monsieur Bovary (and other loyal friends)

Alberto Manguel

COLLECTION OF SHORT STORIES, ALIANZA EDITORIAL, 136 PAGES

"In contrast to their readers, who grow old and will never be young again, imaginary characters are both the people they were when we first read them and also the people they become over subsequent re-readings." In this brief book, Alberto Manguel chooses over a dozen literary characters (from Little Red Riding Hood to Count Dracula, Job to Long John Silver) and uses them to discuss in his characteristically original, humorous and intelligent way the modern world and the admirable durability of these beloved, immortal beings."
