Críticas:

[A] sharp, inventive and compassionate novel . . . to be savored and heeded. (San Francisco Chronicle)

Mr. Thier's dizzying time-travels will inevitably call to mind David Mitchell's "Cloud Atlas," and the danger of such books is that they tend to grow solemn and sanctimonious as they peer into the future. Happily, "Mr. Eternity" remains playful even as it relates catastrophe. (The Wall Street Journal)

With symbolism and analogy, surrealism and fantasy, Thier deftly reflects on and explores the human condition through 'the lavender light and sweet scented dust of history.' Erudite. Imaginative. A work to be read slowly and savored. (starred review Kirkus Reviews)

Thier uses his deathless protagonist to chart the rise and fall of the American empire, and also those certainties--love, trade--that afflict every age . . . The moral imagination behind Defoe's adventures rivals that of his namesake, begging comparison to the best literature has to offer. (Publishers Weekly)

Thier's story lines entwine in Faulknerian brilliance . . . An enchanting, humorous, and visionary experience. (Booklist)

Only a writer as wickedly smart as Aaron Thier would think to write such a twisted and wild story about Florida and climate change and time-battered Daniel Defoe; only Aaron Thier could pull it all off with such aplomb and in such gleeful and spiny language. Mr. Eternity will be sizzling in my brain for a long time. (Lauren Groff, author of FATES AND FURIES)

The end of the world has never been so much fun as in Aaron Thier's brilliant cavalcade of a novel. Careening back- and forward while staying peacefully centered, offering absurdities and heartbreaks in equal measure, Mr. Eternity is a moving exploration of our past, present, and future discombobulations. (Daniel Handler, author of WHY WE BROKE UP and WE ARE PIRATES)

The combination of vivid inventiveness at the sentence level, and wide-ranging vistas across the centuries, makes this novel a joy to read. Daniel Defoe himself would have loved this book. (Kim Stanley Robinson, author of THE MARS TRILOGY)

Aaron Thier's Mr. Eternity is shrewd, smart, and funny. (Elizabeth Kolbert, author of THE SIXTH EXTINCTION)

An absolutely phenomenal book, a comedy of everything. Astonishing. (Michael Hofmann, critic and author of WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN?: SELECTED ESSAYS)

Reseña del editor:

A Thurber Prize Finalist of exuberance and ambition, spanning one thousand years of high-seas adventure, environmental and cultural catastrophe, and enduring love.

"Mr. Eternity will be sizzling in my brain for a long time." -Lauren Groff

Key West, 2016. Sea levels are rising, coral reefs are dying. In short, everything is going to hell. It's here that two young filmmakers find something to believe in: an old sailor who calls himself Daniel Defoe and claims to be five hundred and sixty years old.

In fact, old Dan is in the prime of his life -- an incredible, perhaps eternal American life. The story unfolds over the course of a millennium, picking up in the sixteenth century in the Viceroyalty of New Granada and continuing into the twenty-sixth, where, in the future Democratic Federation of Mississippi States, Dan serves as an advisor to the King of St. Louis. Some things remain constant throughout the centuries, and being on the edge of ruin may be one. In 1560, the Spaniards have destroyed the Aztec and Inca civilizations. In 2500, we've destroyed our own: the cities of the Atlantic coast are underwater, the union has fallen apart, and cars, plastics, and air conditioning are relegated to history. But there are other constants too: love, humor, and old Dan himself, always adapting and inspiring others with dreams of a better life.

An ingenious, hilarious, and genre-bending page-turner, Mr. Eternity is multiple novels in one. Together they form an uncommon work -- about our changing planet and its remarkable continuities.
