En la lista de los mejores libros de Publishers Weekly del 2018

La forma de las ruinas es al mismo tiempo una intriga de investigadores e investigados, una novela profundamente autobiogr fica y una intensa exploraci n hist rica.
La novela m s importante de Juan Gabriel V squez.

Las teor as de la conspiraci n son como enredaderas, V squez. Se agarran de lo que sea para subir y siguen subiendo hasta que no se les quite lo que las sostiene.

En el a o 2014, Carlos Carballo es arrestado por intentar robar de un museo el traje de pa o de Jorge Eli cer Gait n, l der pol tico asesinado en Bogot en 1948. Carballo es un hombre atormentado que busca se ales para desentra ar los misterios de un pasado que lo obsesiona. Pero nadie, ni siquiera sus amigos m s cercanos, sospecha las razones profundas de su obsesi n.

Qu conecta los asesinatos de Jorge Eli cer Gait n, cuya muerte parti en dos la historia de Colombia, y de John F. Kennedy? De qu forma puede un crimen ocurrido en 1914, el del senador liberal colombiano Rafael Uribe Uribe, marcar la vida de un hombre en el siglo XXI? Para Carballo todo est conectado, y las coincidencias no existen. Tras un encuentro fortuito con este hombre misterioso, el escritor Juan Gabriel V squez se ve obligado a internarse en los secretos de una vida ajena, al tiempo que se enfrenta a los momentos m s oscuros del pasado colombiano.

Una lectura compulsiva, tan bella y honda como apasionante, y una indagaci n magistral en las verdades inciertas de un pa s que no acaba de conocerse.

Una de las voces m s originales de la nueva literatura latinoamericana.
Mario Vargas Llosa

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

A Publisher Weekly Best Book 2018
The winner of the IMPAC Prize and the Alfaguara Novel Prize for The Sound of Things Falling brings us a thrilling novel about the intrigues of power and its conspiracies.
- His most important novel to date.
- Juan Gabriel V squez is one of the most prominent young writers in the Spanish language.
- His previous novel, Reputations, received the 20th San Clemente Literary Prize and the Real Academia Espa ola Prize.
- The Sound of Things Falling, 2011 Alfaguara Novel Prize winner, has been widely translated to other languages.
- He has been praised by the likes of Mario Vargas Llosa, John Banville, Javier Cercas, Colm T ib n, Juan Mars , Nicole Krauss, and Edmund White.

In 2014, a man is apprehended at a museum in Bogot trying to steal the suit that an assassinated politician wore on the day of his death. What is behind--and what is the link between--the 1914 attacks against Colombian senator Rafael Uribe Uribe--who would inspire Garc a M rquez to create Aureliano Buend a from One Hundred Years of Solitude, the leader of the Liberal Party Jorge Eliecer Gait n--whose death in 1948 would blow up the history of Colombia, and JFK in Dallas, Texas, on November 22, 1963? Carlos Carballo, the protagonist of this story, is a man obsessed with the past who looks for signs and clues to unravel history's secrets and lies. What happens if you look at all these crimes together? Is it possible that they might hold an answer? Juan Gabriel V squez, the author-narrator of the novel, had a strange privilege: to hold in his hands the mortal remains of those two politicians whose assassinations affected the 20th century in Colombia.

This novel stems from that moment in his life. Those are the ruins described in the title. This is a tale about criminal investigations, but also about the relationship that we establish with the past and with political conspiracies, both real and imaginary. Why do they fascinate us? Why do we insist on searching for hidden culprits in the violent acts that have impacted our history? How do we inherit them even if they happened before we were born? By including himself as a narrator in a fiction work, V squez uses events in his own life--from the births of his daughters to the way that he came to hold the remains of two murdered men--to reflect about these topics.
