Summary note:
New York is benevolent. Its 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.
