About the book:

Son tres los protagonistas de esta extrana y fantastica aventura literaria del siglo XX : dos hombres -Herbert Stencil, que busca algo que cree haber perdido, y Benny Profane, quien, como nunca tuvo nada que perder, nunca ha buscado nada- y V., una enigmatica mujer que tan pronto puede ser una joven desflorada en el Cairo, como la hembra de una rata de alcantarilla en Nueva York, una bailarina alemana en el suroeste africano, un misterioso pais o una lesbiana de Paris. Pero ¿por que Stencil se empena en investigar la verdadera identidad de V. ? La respuesta tal vez resida tanto en la pertinaz idea que tiene Stencil de que «detras de V., y en V.,hay mucho mas que todo lo que jamas hayamos sonado »como en esa reflexion del propio Pynchon «Lo que son para el libertino unos muslos abiertos, lo que es el vuelo de los pajaros migratorios para el ornitologo, lo que es una tenaza para el ajustador, esto es para el joven Stencil la letra V». Todo parece verosimil en esta extraordinaria novela, todo un clasico de la literatura contemporanea. / There are three protagonists of this strange and fantastic literary adventure of the twentieth century: two men, Herbert Stencil, who are looking for something that you believe you have lost, and Benny Profane, who, as he never had anything to lose, has never sought anything, and V. , An enigmatic woman who may soon be a young deflowered in Cairo, as the female of a sewer rat in New York, a German dancer in southwest Africa, a mysterious country or a lesbian. But why Stencil strives to investigate the true identity of V.? The answer might reside in the persistent idea that has Stencil that ""behind V., and V., there is much more than anything we have ever dreamed"" as a reflection of himself in that Pynchon ""What we are for the libertine some thighs open, which is the flight of migratory birds for the ornithologist, which is a pincers to the adjuster, this is for the young Stencil ""V"". Everything seems plausible in this extraordinary novel, a classic of contemporary literature.
