Novela del año según TIME y finalista del Man Booker Prize.

«Áspera, empática, finamente construida, sin edulcorantes y cargada de golpes, ninguno de ellos suave.».- Margaret Atwood

«La mayor parte de los libros de ficción literaria son de corta duración. La sala Marte permanecerá. Es auténtica.».- Stephen King

El camino que recorre Romy, condenada a dos cadenas perpetuas, es el que parece programado para ciertas personas y que pone en cuestión el sueño americano: un camino que va directo desde la pobreza hasta la cárcel. En La sala Marte entramos de lleno en este mundo extraño situado tras los muros de una prisión de mujeres, cargado de detalles y de un idioma y una rutina propios; un mundo aparte pero unido íntimamente al del exterior.

La minuciosidad con la que Rachel Kushner trata la violencia latente y explícita de esta red carcelaria, la oscuridad y la comicidad de sus personajes, la implicación con la que se ha empapado de la realidad más subterránea de su país, han convertido a esta novela en una obra clave de la literatura americana actual.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

TIME'S #1 FICTION TITLE OF THE YEAR - NEW YORK TIMES NOTABLE BOOK OF 2018

FINALIST for the MAN BOOKER PRIZE and t he NATIONAL BOOK CRITICS CIRCLE AWARD

LONGLISTED for the ANDREW CARNEGIE MEDAL

An instant New York Times bestseller from two-time National Book Award finalist Rachel Kushner, The Mars Room earned tweets from Margaret Atwood--"gritty, empathic, finely rendered, no sugar toppings, and a lot of punches, none of them pulled"--and from Stephen King--"The Mars Room is the real deal, jarring, horrible, compassionate, funny."

It's 2003 and Romy Hall, named after a German actress, is at the start of two consecutive life sentences at Stanville Women's Correctional Facility, deep in California's Central Valley. Outside is the world from which she has been severed: her young son, Jackson, and the San Francisco of her youth. Inside is a new reality: thousands of women hustling for the bare essentials needed to survive; the bluffing and pageantry and casual acts of violence by guards and prisoners alike; and the deadpan absurdities of institutional living, portrayed with great humor and precision.

Stunning and unsentimental, The Mars Room is "wholly authentic...profound...luminous" ( The Wall Street Journal), "one of those books that enrage you even as they break your heart" ( The New York Times Book Review, cover review)--a spectacularly compelling, heart-stopping novel about a life gone off the rails in contemporary America. It is audacious and tragic, propulsive and yet beautifully refined and "affirms Rachel Kushner as one of our best novelists" ( Entertainment Weekly).La Sala Marte / The Mars Room (Paperback)
