Hugo Chávez nunca hubiera imaginado la repercusión que tuvo la idea de regalarle el libro de Eduardo Galeano a Barack Obama.

Lo que pasa, que a partir del obsequio que le brindó al presidente del país del norte, consistente en el libro «Las venas abiertas de América Latina», llevado a cabo  el sábado pasado, en el cierre de la V Cumbre de las Américas, se desencadeno un boom de ventas en los estados Unidos, algo impensado en otras épocas.

De acuerdo a un informe AFP, la versión en inglés de la obra de Galeano pasó en 24 horas del puesto 73 al 2 en la lista de los más vendidos en Amazon.com y la versión en español se disparó aún más, ya que ascendió del puesto 47.468 hasta llegar al número uno en la popular tienda on line.

Sin embargo, el libro que hoy arrasan los estadounidenses a 12 dólares por ejemplar ya era un libro de éxito en Latinoamérica desde su publicación en 1971. Su fuerte crítica y su visión sobre los vaivenes de América Latina frente a las grandes potencias lo transformaron en un texto prohibido durante las dictaduras en Argentina, Uruguay y Chile pero también uno de los más buscados cuando las democracias se recuperaron.
