Forlagets beskrivelse

Peter Jernigan is barely over forty, lives in a suburb in New Jersey with his teenaged son Danny, and works in a New York real estate agency. Intelligent, but lacking success, Jernigan flounders through his ordinary life, from which neither his addictions nor his sarcasm can save him. His eccentricity and the recent death of his wife drag him towards a tortuous decadence. But things seem capable of changing when he meets Martha Peretsky, his son?s girlfriend?s divorced mother, and the two begin a promising relationship. This is the entertaining story of a man who, guided by his worst qualities, succeeds in turning his life into a failure of epic proportions. Peter Jernigan?s captivating voice accompanies us through his peculiar descent into hell, while offering a hilarious dissection of the selfishness, indifference, and cruelty that exists within all of us. Published in 1991, and a Pulitzer Prize finalist, this is David Gates?s first and most acclaimed novel, and its protagonist has become one of modern American literature?s classic antiheroes.

?

Peter Jernigan tiene poco m?s de cuarenta a?os, vive en un barrio residencial de Nueva Jersey con su hijo adolescente, Danny, y trabaja en una inmobiliaria neoyorquina. Inteligente pero con escaso ?xito, Jernigan naufraga en una adocenada vida de la que no consiguen sacarlo ni sus adicciones ni su sarcasmo. Su estrafalaria manera de relacionarse con los dem?s y la reciente muerte de su mujer lo arrastran a una tortuosa decadencia. Parece que las cosas pueden empezar a cambiar cuando conoce a Martha Peretsky, la madre divorciada de la novia de su hijo, e inician una prometedora relaci?n. Esta es la divert?disima historia de un hombre que, dej?ndose llevar por sus peores cualidades, consigue convertir su vida en un estrepitoso fracaso. La cautivadora voz de Peter Jernigan nos acompa?a en su particular descenso a los infiernos, a la vez que ofrece una desternillante disecci?n del ego?smo, la indiferencia y la crueldad que se hallan en el fondo de cada? uno de nosotros. Publicada en 1991 y finalista del Premio Pulitzer, esta es la primera y m?s aclamada novela de David Gates, y su protagonista se ha convertido en uno de los antih?roes cl?sicos de la literatura norteamericana reciente.
