Item description for ANTONIO B (Andanzas/ Adventures) by Ramiro Pinilla...

Basada en hechos reales, Antonio B. el Ruso, ciudadano de tercera es la narracin en primera persona de la vida de un hombre desde su nacimiento en Las Cabreras (Len, Espaa) a principios de los aos treinta hasta los aos setenta, acabado el rgimen franquista. Antonio B. arrastra una existencia extremadamente dura, en la que tiene que robar para comer, su madre le abandona, sus vecinos le odian y la autoridad le maltrata constantemente. Conoce crceles, penales y el manicomio, hasta llegar al Pas Vasco, donde encuentra trabajo y logra enderezar su vida. Con personajes reales e informacin fidedigna pues como dice el propio Pinilla, en el relato de su vida Antonio era incapaz de agregar un gramo de fantasa o invencin, la narracin es sobrecogedora, impetuosa, profundamente emotiva. La obra, aparecida hace ahora ms de treinta aos, se convirti en un libro de referencia en plena Transicin, y es desde entonces uno de los ttulos ms buscados y esperados de su autor. Hoy, cuando ste se ha convertido en uno de los nombres imprescindibles de la narrativa en castellano, tras la obtencin del Premio Nacional de Narrativa y del Premio de la Crtica por Verdes Valles, colinas rojas, la publicacin de Antonio B. el Ruso va a ser de nuevo un acontecimiento, por la modernidad del relato y la impresionante veracidad de lo narrado. / Based on real events, Antonio B. -aka El Ruso- citizen of the third level in the society world, this book tells the the story of a man since the day he was born in Las Cabreras (Len,Espaa) in the early years of the 30's decade, until the 70's, after the Franco's regime. Antonio B. lived a very tortured life. He had to steal to eat; it's abandoned by his mother, his neighbors heat him and he's constantly appalled by the authorities.
