Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The year is 1920, and Luis Agua, an authorised manager of an electricity company, arrives in Vila Natal, an inhospitable village in Portugal. His objective is to convince the inhabitants of the benefits of artificial light. Before long, however, Agua learns that the village and the castle that presides over it hide deep secrets. A noble widow in decline, a will that is both cruel and impertinent, a pioneer of aviation, an epidemic and an unexpected ending are the ingredients for this novel in which the themes of love, revenge, humour, death, greed...come together to form an almost arithmetic narrative.

"I have discovered seven writers throughout my long life as a reader of manuscripts. Eduardo Berti has been the seventh"-Hector Bianciotti

"There is no doubt that Eduardo Berti must be considered one of the most original, most accomplished novelists writing in Spanish today"-Alberto Manguel

Eduardo Berti was born in Buenos Aires in 1964 and now lives in Paris, where he works as a journalist and writes novels. Broadcaster (he founded of one of the first independent radio stations in Argentina), rock journalist (he was Editor in Chief of the South American edition of Rolling Stone) and television documentary maker (he has won awards for La Cueva, Solo Tango and the series Volvertango), Eduardo Berti is also a world authority on the history of Tango. He is the author of a book of short stories entitled Los Pajaros for which he received an award from the magazine Cultura and which Pagina/12 newspaper considered among the best works of Argentine fiction in 1994. Agua, his first novel, was unanimously acclaimed both in Argentina and Spain and has already been published in France. His second novel La Mujer de Wakefield has just been published in Spain.
