Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Ariel Dorfman conoce bien el destierro. Antes de cumplir trece años, el había huído junto con su familia—judíos que se fueron forzosamente de Europa del Este—de Argentina a los Estados Unidos, y más tarde a Chile. Con el coup contra el presidente socialista de Chile Salvador Allende, Dorfman salió en exilio de nuevo, esta vez a Europa y luego a los Estados Unidos. Para el autor estas peregrinaciones entre países, culturas e idiomas representaron un desplazamiento personal, dejandolo sin país o idioma a cual aferrarse. Rumbo al sur, deseando el norte, un libro de memorias, es un futuro clásico de la literatura de las Américas donde el lector podrá encontrar la cartografía emocional del destierro.

Synopsis:

In this remarkable memoir, Ariel Dorfman describes an extraordinary life torn between the United States and South America, between his Latin roots and Jewish heritage, between English and Spanish, between revolution and repression
