Read full description of the books:
Hacia 1885, Kim vagabundea por los aledaños del Museo de Lahore. Parece uno más entre las bandadas de niños indios que pelean por encaramarse al viejo cañón Zam-Zammah, pero Kimball O’Hara es en realidad un niño inglés al que el destino depara una aventura de amistad, lealtad, honor y heroísmo.
«...a mi modo de ver, que "Kim" sea una novela de espionaje es un asunto lateral del mismo modo que lo es que se trate de una novela picaresca, una obra costumbrista, una novela de viajes, una novela de arquetipos o una novela iniciática, ya que como toda gran obra de arte permite numerosas lecturas e interpretaciones diversas. Lo que la acredita para mí como tal obra de arte no es sólo la belleza de su historia, sino su brillantísima escritura, aguda, llena de hallazgos, de frases perfectas, certeras, jugosas, fuertes, plenas de color y de vigor, capaces de dotar de una vida incuestionable no sólo a los maravillosos personajes sino los lugares y el paisaje de la India.» Del prólogo de Blanca Andreu.

Read information about the authorJoseph Rudyard Kipling was a journalist, short-story writer, poet, and novelist.
Kipling's works of fiction include The Jungle Book (1894), Kim (1901), and many short stories, including The Man Who Would Be King (1888). His poems include Mandalay (1890), Gunga Din (1890), The Gods of the Copybook Headings (1919), The White Man's Burden (1899), and If— (1910). He is regarded as a major innovator in the art of the short story; his children's books are classics of children's literature; and one critic described his work as exhibiting "a versatile and luminous narrative gift".
Kipling was one of the most popular writers in the United Kingdom, in both prose and verse, in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Henry James said: "Kipling strikes me personally as the most complete man of genius (as distinct from fine intelligence) that I have ever known." In 1907, at the age of 41, he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature, making him the first English-language writer to receive the prize, and its youngest recipient to date. He was also sounded out for the British Poet Laureateship and on several occasions for a knighthood, both of which he declined.
Awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1907 "in consideration of the power of observation, originality of imagination, virility of ideas and remarkable talent for narration which characterize the creations of this world-famous author."
Kipling kept writing until the early 1930s, but at a slower pace and with much less success than before. On the night of 12 January 1936, Kipling suffered a haemorrhage in his small intestine. He underwent surgery, but died less than a week later on 18 January 1936 at the age of 70 of a perforated duodenal ulcer. Kipling's death had in fact previously been incorrectly announced in a magazine, to which he wrote, "I've just read that I am dead. Don't forget to delete me from your list of subscribers."
