General Note
"Premio Alfaguara de Novela 2017."
Description
¿Quiénes somos cuando nos cambian las circunstancias? La guerra dura y una década y nadie sabe a ciencia cierta cómo transcurre, qué bando fue el agresor y cuál el agredido. Cuando llega el momento de evacuar la zona por seguridad, él emprende camino junto a su mujer y al niño Julio, que ayuda a amortiguar el dolor por la ausencia de los hijos soldados. En la ciudad los recuerdos desaparecen; no existe intimidad, ni siquiera se puede sentir miedo. Hasta el momento en que la conciencia despierta y se impone asumir las consecuencias.
Description
Who are we when circumstances change us? The war lasts a decade and no one knows for sure how it goes, which side was the aggressor and which was the one attacked. In the region, life has continued between the fear of the delation and the yearning of those who went to the front. When it is time to evacuate the area for safety, he takes to the road with his wife and Julio, who helps to cushion the pain due to the absence of child soldiers. A protected future seems to be waiting for them in the transparent city, where everything is in the public domain and strangely happy. There the memories disappear; there is no intimacy-not even fear-until the moment when consciousness awakens and takes on the consequences. "A Kafkaesque and Orwellian story of authority and collective manipulation, a parable of our societies exposed to the eyes and judgment of all." Of the Jury of the XX Prize Alfaguara of novel.
