Aguinis, Marcos. El atroz encanto de ser Argentinos. Buenos Aires, Argentina, 2003

Jul 07, 2011
Este libro responde a una contradicción: ¿Cómo puede ser atroz un encanto? Y es que ser argentino es una empresa cada vez más difícil. Atravesamos momentos duros, y siempre los hemos superado. El nuevo milenio nos encuentra con las esperanzas debilitadas, y nuestra sensación de incertidumbre ante el futuro está en su punto más alto. Sin embargo, no dejamos de sentir orgullo por haber nacido en esta tierra. En estas páginas, la condición contradictoria del ser argentino es abordada con maestría por Marcos Aguinis. Nos cautiva con su inteligencia al describir las razones por las que debemos apostar por la esperanza. Analiza los defectos que arrastramos de generación en generación, desnuda a los corruptos, denuncia el fascismo, el doble discurso y la queja estéril. La lectura de este libro brillante y emotivo invita a hacer el esfuerzo, porque Aguinis nos demuestra que vale la pena. Para que nunca dejemos de estar orgullosos de ser argentinos. more
