El ganador del Premio Alfaguara de novela y del Independent Foreign Fictos Prize vuelve con un apasionante crimen en la Lima de los años noventa. Cuatro amigos rememoran un acontecimiento sucedido en su adolescencia del que sólo ellos saben la verdad. ¿Cuál es su verdadera implicación en la muerte de su profesora? En unos años convulsos en la historia de Perú, este hecho criminal queda silenciado por los atentados y las bombas: unas muertes se tapan con otras, el horror general mitiga el particular. Santiago Roncagliolo aborda con talento y crudeza temas universales como el despertar sexual en la adolescencia, la ausencia de sensación de peligro, la necesidad de autoafirmación llevada hasta sus últimas consecuencias o la indistinción entre el bien y el mal.
The winner of the Alfaguara Novel Prize and the Independent Foreign Fiction Prize returns with a thrilling crime set in Lima in the 1990s. Four friends recall an event from their adolescence about which only they know the truth. What is their true implication in the death of their teacher? In years of upheaval in the history of Peru, this crime has been kept silent by attacks and bombs: some deaths are concealed by others; general horror always overrides individual events. Santiago Roncagliolo skillfully and starkly tackles universal themes like sexual awakening in adolescence, the absence of a sense of danger, the need for self-affirmation taken to its ultimate consequences, and the lack of discrimination between good and evil.
