Radio Ciudad Perdida by Daniel Alarcon
Book Description-"Radio Ciudad Perdida" es un libro de una fuerza extraordinaria. La inagotable inventiva y el sentido del detalle de Alarcon son ya inigualables.- "The Guardian "Hace diez anos que la guerra civil ha terminado en un pais sin nombre. Mucha gente ha desaparecido y la ciudad se ha transformado dramaticamente. Norma conduce el programa de mas exito de la radio. Lee los nombres de los desparecidos y, al hacerlo, reune a familias e intenta recomponer lo que la violencia ha destruido. Pero ella tambien es una victima de la guerra, su marido no ha regresado a casa. Aparece entonces Victor, un nino de la selva portando una lista de nombres, en la que Norma encontrara indicios sobre el destino de su esposo.Contundente y cautivadora, Radio Ciudad Perdida plantea profundas interrogantes respecto a la guerra y su significado: desde su impacto arrasador sobre una sociedad sacudida por la violencia, hasta las cicatrices emocionales que cada participante, observador y superviviente carga a lo largo de su vida. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION For ten years, Norma has been the voice of consolation for a people broken by violence. She hosts Lost City Radio, the most popular program in their nameless South American country, gripped in the aftermath of war. Every week, the Indians in the mountains and the poor from the barrios listen as she reads the names of those who have gone missing, those whom the furiously expanding city has swallowed. Loved ones are reunited and the lost are found. Each week, she returns to the airwaves while hiding her own personal loss: her husband disappeared at the end of the war. But the life she has become accustomed to is forever changed when a young boy arrives from the jungle and provides a clue to the fate of her long-missing husband. This tender debut marks Alarcon's emergence as a major new voice in American fiction."
