Libro de Manuel es la gran novela política de Julio Cortázar. Libro de Manuel (1973) es una síntesis polémica de las búsquedas estéticas de Cortázar y de su interés por los movimientos revolucionarios de aquellos años.

Pero conserva de aquella novela fundamental toda la fantasía, el desenfado y la frescura que han hecho de Cortázar un escritor único e irrepetible dentro del panorama literario del siglo XX. Reseña: «Cortázar es uno de los mejores escritores argentinos.» Adolfo Bioy Casares ENGLISH DESCRIPTION This, Cortázar's great political novel, focuses on the political condition of Latin America. It is a controversial blend of his aesthetic searches and his interest in the revolutionary movements of those times.
