Notes

Description
En el país de Toó, un territorio apartado dentro de una pequeña república de Centroamérica, conviven en dudosa paz desde hace casi doscientos años un sistema de organización comunal maya y las leyes del gobierno imperante. Pero la voracidad de las empresas mineras está haciendo emerger de su centenario letargo a las fuerzas mayas. Ha llegado la hora de defender los derechos de los indígenas y el medioambiente, una lucha en la que Polo Yrrarraga cosecha pequeños logros hasta que los enemigos que ha ido haciéndose en el camino comienzan a conspirar contra él. Entre esos dos mundos, Jacobito, hijo del poderoso Emilio Carrión, su nana y El Cobra, chofer del magnate, jugarán un papel insospechado. Una novela que destapa los entresijos de la corrupción centroamericana y las actuales luchas de poder, y que confirma la estatura literaria de un autor al que han admirado Paul Bowles y Roberto Bolaño.
Description
In the country of Toó, a remote territory within a small republic of Central America, a system of Mayan communal organization and the laws of the ruling government coexist in dubious peace for almost two hundred years. But the voracity of the mining companies is making the Mayan forces emerge from their centenary lethargy. The time has come to defend the rights of the indigenous people and the environment, a struggle in which Polo Yrrarraga reaps small achievements until the enemies that have been taking over the road begin to conspire against him. Between those two worlds, Jacobito, son of the powerful Emilio Carrión, his nanny and El Cobra, the tycoon's driver, will play an unsuspected role. A novel that uncovers the intricacies of Central American corruption and current power struggles, and confirms the literary stature of an author who has admired Paul Bowles and Roberto Bolaño.
