About the Author: Rose Macaulay

Emilie Rose Macaulay, whom Elizabeth Bowen called "one of the few writers of whom it may be said, she adorns our century," was born at Rugby, where her father was an assistant master. Descended on both sides from a long line of clerical ancestors, she felt Anglicanism was in her blood. Much of her childhood was spent in Varazze, near Genoa, and memories of Italy fill the early novels. The family returned to England in 1894 and settled in Oxford. She read history at Somerville, and on coming down lived with her family first in Wales, then near Cambridge, where her father had been appointed a lecturer in English. There she began a writing career which was to span fifty years with the publication of her first novel, Abbots Verney, in 1906. When her sixth novel, The Lee Shore (1912), won a literary prize, a gift from her uncle allowed her to rent a tiny flat in London, and she plunged happily into London literary life.

Las torres de Trebisonda cuenta las peripecias de un estrambótico grupo, formado por Laurie, la narradora, su inimitable tía Dot, el intolerante padre Chantry-Pigg y un camello loco, que parte de Inglaterra rumbo a Oriente Medio movido por distintos intereses que van desde un heterodoxo proselitismo anglicano al puro placer del viaje. Ingeniosa y a la vez melancólica, desenfadada y sutil, esta novela descubre una ciudad de fábula, una Trebisonda reflejo de inquietudes espirituales, metáfora del carácter esquivo de la verdad. Un relato satírico y en ocasiones absurdo, de un humor chispeante, tras el que se esconden las sombras del desengaño, los dilemas religiosos y el recuerdo de un amor perdido.
