Los geniecillos dominicales (The Sunday Genie, Spanish Edition)

By José Ramón Ribeyro.

"Los geniecillos dominicales", considerada una de las primeras novelas "urbanas" de América Latina, salió a la luz en 1965. En esta novela, las calles de Lima se convierten en el escenario de un joven estudiante de Derecho, Ludo, en plena crisis vital, de confrontación entre la juventud y la madurez, entre una vocación discutible y un futuro incierto. En las primeras líneas de la historia, este protagonista aparece en la oficina, "está aburrido y con sed, por todo eso es que Ludo interrumpe el recurso de embargo que está redactando y lanza un gemido poderoso", renuncia a su trabajo y se dispone a callejear por la ciudad en una especie de aventura iniciática. El gemido que lanza cuando empieza la novela recorre todo el libro hasta su fin. En palabras de otro escritor peruano, Mario Vargas Llosa, "Con esta novela, Ribeyro no sólo ha trazado su biografía espiritual de escritor, ha escrito además el más hermoso de sus libros, el de gloria más cierta y durable".

Considered one of the first "urban" novels of Latin America, "Los geniecillos dominicales" was originally published in 1965. In this novel, the streets of Lima become the setting for a young law student, Ludo, in the midst of a life crisis, poised between youth and maturity, facing a dubious vocation and an uncertain future. The first page of the novel finds the protagonist in his office, "bored and thirsty, interrupting the writ of seizure he is drafting to heave a powerful sigh." He quits his job and sets out to wander through the city in a sort of initiation. The sigh at the beginning of the novel persists until the very end. In the words of another Peruvian writer, Mario Vargas Llosa, "with this novel, Ribeyro has not only written his spiritual autobiography, but also the most beautiful of his books, destined to sure and lasting glory."
