THE BOOK HOLDER
In The Bookkeeper we will find what is the sign of all the books of José Luis Melero: his unique and personal journey through the less traveled history of literature. And so we will know how was the bedroom of Perez Galdós and how he carried the Spanish cape Diego de San José, the solitude in which the poet Ignacio Ciordia died, the grudge against Baroja Luis Ruiz Contreras, the sale of the library of Cánovas del Castillo , The unpardonable gossip of Alfredo Marqueríe on Antonio Machado, the remorse of André Gide for having rejected Poust’s original A la recherche du temps perdu, the few copies he sold from his books Ramón Gómez de la Serna, the true story of the umbrella Of Azorín or the exciting lives of Ivan de Nogales or José Mor de Fuentes.
And along with them, many other characters of Spanish culture appear in their pages: María Sánchez Arbós, Alardo Prats, Julio Cejador, Pedro Vindel, Ramón MIquel i Planas or Teodoro Bardají, who recover the presence they once had and that the passage Of the years made them lose unfairly.
The bookkeeper is an illustrated showcase where José Luis Melero shows us part of your library and which exhibits many of his passions and loyalties. The bookkeeper a book for readers is the best.
