Description

Nueva York es benevolente. Basta entregarse. Abandonarse sin Resistencia a su corriente de movimiento perpetuo. Dejarse complacer por su oferta desaforada. En medio de su fulgor intenso, dejo de parecerme a mi mismo y eso... es el mejor amulet contra la muerte. Nueva York, como toda mega ciudad, propicia y facilita. Es la gran meretriz que abre los apetitos. Un apartamento sin fronteras y una minuscula libreria en East Village son los escenarios que proponen a Felipe dos caminos de descubrimiento: hacia una mujer insondable y hacia la historia de un indigena ixil cuya diferencia cultural lo desafia. En el laberinto de hallazgos, en los recovecos del deseo, el encontrara su propia salvacion... y una razon para volver a Guatemala. Narrada con pericia, Carol Zardetto nos propone una compleja novela con un toque cosmopolita y multicultural. Se trata de una historia de desamor impresionante, conmovedora y dura. De manera sorprendente, la Guatemala mas profunda surge alli, en medio de la gran metropolis, como una reflexion de lo que significa ser contemporaneo. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION "New York is benevolent. It's enough to just surrender. Resign to its current of perpetual movement. Let yourself take pleasure in its boundless offer. In the middle of its intense glow, I stop seeming like myself, and that... is the best amulet against death." New York, like all mega-cities, promotes and facilitates. It is the great prostitute who opens appetites. An apartment without borders and a miniscule bookstore in the East Village are the settings that offer Felipe two paths of discovery: toward an inscrutable woman and toward the history of an Ixil native whose cultural difference challenges him. In the labyrinth of discoveries, in the hidden corners of desire, he finds his own salvation... and a reason to return to Guatemala. Skillfully narrated, Carol Zardetto sets forth a complex novel with a cosmopolitan and multicultural touch. It is an impressive, moving, and difficult story of heartbreak. In a surprising way, the deepest side of Guatemala surfaces there, in the middle of the great metropolis, as a reflection of what it means to be contemporary.
