Product Description

El Castillo de Cristal es la historia conmovedora de una familia que ama y que también abandona, que es leal y al mismo tiempo decepciona. Su lectura no dejará indiferente a ningún lector que se atreva con ella. Algunas pocas veces en la vida nos encontramos con libros excepcionales. Libros que se nos van imponiendo lentamente, que nos envuelven con su magia y que se instalan en nuestro corazón para no irse más.

Así es la historia que nos cuenta Jeannette Walls, una exitosa periodista que durante muchos años ocultó un gran secreto. El de su familia. Una familia al mismo tiempo profundamente disfuncional y tremendamente viva, vibrante. El padre, Rex, es un hombre carismático y entusiasta, que logra transmitir a sus hijos la pasión por vivir. Les enseña física, geología, les cuenta historias. Pero Rex es alcohólico, y cuando está borracho se convierte en una persona destructiva y poco de fiar. La madre es un espíritu libre, una pintora muy orgullosa de su arte que aborrece la idea de una vida convencional y que no está dispuesta a asumir la responsabilidad de criar a sus cuatro hijos.

La familia Walls es una familia errante. Viven aquí y allá y sobreviven como pueden. Los niños aprenden a cuidar de sí mismos, se protegen unos a otros, y finalmente consiguen salir del círculo infernal en que se convierte la familia para marcharse a Nueva York. En el camino quedan noches donde duermen al aire libre en el desierto, pueblos donde acuden por una semana a la escuela, vecinos que los ayudan y abusos de todo tipo.

Una historia transformadora sobre la locura, la pobreza y el amor. Uno de esos libros después de cuya lectura uno no puede permanecer igual, sino que sale cambiado para siempre.

«Un libro excelente... Walls tiene verdadero talento para contar historias.»
Publishers Weekly

«Walls ha pasado a formar parte de ese excepcional grupo de escritores como Mary Karr y Frank McCourt (Las cenizas de Ángela), capaces de transformar sus memorias de una infancia terrible en excelente literatura.»

«Walls recibió el mejor regalo que se le puede hacer a una escritora: una familia disfuncional empaquetada con excentricidades. [...] Caballos salvajes es el cuento de otra sardónica pariente de espíritu libre: su abuela materna Lily Casey Smith».
USA Today (Sobre Caballos salvajes)



The first book by the beloved author of the new novel The Silver Star, the extraordinary, one-of-a-kind, "nothing short of spectacular" (Entertainment Weekly) memoir from one of the world's most gifted storytellers.

The Glass Castle is a remarkable memoir of resilience and redemption, and a revelatory look into a family at once deeply dysfunctional and uniquely vibrant. When sober, Jeannette's brilliant and charismatic father captured his children's imagination, teaching them physics, geology, and how to embrace life fearlessly. But when he drank, he was dishonest and destructive. Her mother was a free spirit who abhorred the idea of domesticity and didn't want the responsibility of raising a family.

The Walls children learned to take care of themselves. They fed, clothed, and protected one another, and eventually found their way to New York. Their parents followed them, choosing to be homeless even as their children prospered.

The Glass Castle is truly astonishing—a memoir permeated by the intense love of a peculiar but loyal family.
