By Isaac Asimov
Encerrado en l. a. habitación de un clinic y a sabiendas de que sus días estaban contados, Isaac Asimov decidió dejar de lado los angeles astronomía, l. a. bioquímica y l. a. ciencia ficción para dedicarse al tema que más le interesaba: su vida. Nació así un autorretrato de pincelada fina, donde destaca l. a. figura de un genio que fue niño prodigio y ya desde los angeles infancia desarrolló las dotes que harían de él el gran humanista del siglo xx: una curiosidad infatigable, un saber aparentemente sin límites, una extraordinaria capacidad de comunicación y una dedicación incansable a los angeles propia obra, que se cifraría en más de 470 textos publicados. Estas Memorias por donde desfilan personajes de los angeles talla de Arthur C. Clarke, Frederik Pohl, Ben Bova y Robert Silverberg no se limitan a los perfiles del personaje público; en ellas oímos también l. a. voz más íntima de Asimov, que con aguda ironía va desgranando sus opiniones acerca de amigos y enemigos, sin dejar de lado unas sabrosas anécdotas sobre su vida de marido y padre. El resultado de esta última entrega del gran autor es un documento único, insólito y tan apasionante como los angeles mejor de sus novelas. Confío y espero que, tras leer estas Memorias, el lector llegue a conocerme de verdad, y cabe incluso que yo llegue a gustarle. Esto me encantaría.
