Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Told from the point of view of a survivor of the Falklands War, Los pichiciegos follows a band of Argentinean soldiers who, after the construction of an underground refuge, desert the army in the middle of the conflict and create their own community. After their desertion, survival becomes their primary focus, and in order to eat, keep warm, see in the dark, and—most importantly—remain undiscovered, they have to deal both with their own side and that of the English. A captivating novel of the experience of war and of life itself, this book represents a high-water mark in late 20th-century Latin American literature.

 Un relato construido a partir de las declaraciones de un sobreviviente de la Guerra de las Malvinas, Los pichiciegos sigue a un grupo de soldados argentinos que, tras la construcción de un refugio subterráneo, desertan del ejercito, en plena guerra, para crear una comunidad con sus propias leyes. Todo gira entonces en torno a la sobrevivencia, y para poder comer, mantenerse calientes, ver en la oscuridad y—lo más importante de todo—no ser descubiertos, tienen que traficar tanto con su propio bando como con el de los ingleses. Esta novela cautivadora sobre la experiencia de la guerra y de la vida misma representa la cumbre de la literatura latinoamericana a finales del siglo XX.
