By Mark Twain,Editorial Impedimenta,Gabriela Bustelo Tortella

«Este libro no saldrá jamás. Es imposible porque se consideraría una ignominia.» Mark Twain

«De todos los escritores del mundo, quizá sea Mark Twain quien más se haya divertido contando lo que quería contar. Por eso el lector disfruta tanto con su implacable versión de l. a. estupidez, los angeles arrogancia, los angeles ostentación y el disparate generalizado de los angeles humanidad.» (Chicago solar Times)

En 1909, Mark Twain le envió una carta a un amigo en los angeles que le hablaba en confianza de lo último que había escrito: «Este libro no saldrá jamás. Es imposible porque se consideraría una ignominia». Tomada en su conjunto, los angeles obra de Twain quien, junto a Melville, está considerado el Gran Novelista Americano, es una colosal sátira de l. a. naturaleza humana. En el caso de Los escritos irreverentes, recurrió a un género que algunos críticos denominaron «pseudo-historia». Las pequeñas diatribas bíblicas que lo componen, escritas entre 1870 y 1909, evidencian el profundo escepticismo religioso de Twain. El libro que tenemos en las manos oculta bajo su burlona fachada un humorístico y mordaz ataque a los valores establecidos, y es l. a. muestra de una inteligencia more desirable, que no deja títere con cabeza. l. a. coincidencia de que este año sea el del centenario de l. a. muerte de Mark Twain da un significado especial a los angeles edición de un libro que, al salir a l. a. luz en Estados Unidos, produjo una verdadera conmoción y estuvo durante meses en los angeles lista de libros más vendidos.

LA PRENSA HA DICHO: «En Los escritos irreverentes Twain se aleja de los angeles ficción al uso para construir un texto que oscila entre los angeles historia, l. a. crónica, el apunte y el microrrelato, y en el que vierte toda su exasperación por el totalitarismo religioso.» Solodelibros
