Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The complexity of a country in which violence and internal armed-conflict coexist with enormous cultural, natural, and human riches is captured in this illuminating essay by Colombian poet William Ospina. The accompanying photographs—all previously unpublished—are taken by some of Colombia's best photographers, and each in its own way sheds light on the possibility of a future in which the nation may become reconciled with itself.
 
Esta colección de textos del célebre escritor colombiano William Ospina es un retrato de matices, buenos y malos, escrito de manera crítica pero certera sobre un país donde la presencia de un conflicto armado se contrapone a las enormes riquezas culturales y naturales, y a los increíbles potenciales y calidades humanas de los colombianos. Las fotografías acompañantes fueron tomados por algunos de los fotógrafos más conocidos de Colombia. Cada foto, en su propia manera, propone una vista fresca de Colombia, un pueblo que, a pesar de sí mismo, ha logrado salir adelante en el proceso interminable de formarse como país.
