No será la Tierra

Volpi, Jorge

No será la Tierra

Year: 2006
Editorial: Alfaguara
Language: Español, Catalán
Synopsis: ‘Jorge Volpi achève sa trilogie du XXe siècle par un formidable thriller sur la chute du communisme et les nouvelles relations Est-Ouest.’

Le Figaro

The Soviet biologist Irina Gránina witnesses the downfall of Communism and, with it, the rebelliousness of her daughter Oksana, the first victim of the triumph of Capitalism. In the other side of the world, Jennifer Moore, from the International Monetary Fund (IMF), fights with her ambitious husband, Jack Wells, and with her sister Allison, her exact reverse: an anti-globalisation activist. And, Eva Hálasz, a genius in computing who insists on discovering the secrets of human intelligence, is always tortured by her changes of mood and her many and often jealous lovers. It Won’t be the Earth narrates the big transformations of our time: the fall of the Berlin wall, the coup d’état against Gorbachov and the raise of Yeltsin, the bacteriological war and the Human Genome Project. Scientific account, detective fable, journalistic chronicle, love story, a sum of genres, this novel is a fascinating exploration of the human greed and an examination of the passions that lead our life.
