The Old Man Who Read Love Stories (Harvest in Translation)by Luis Sepulveda
Synopses & Reviews
Nestled deep in the Ecuadoran jungle stands the remote river town of El Idilio, where widower Antonio Jose Bolivar seeks refuge in the tear-jerking novels brought to him from the brothel downstream. But the love stories offer Bolivar only temporary relief from what he judges to be the increasing stupidity of modern man--and the task he must complete. Winner of Spain's Tigre Juan Prize.
In a remote river town deep in the Ecuadoran jungle, Antonio José Bolívar seeks refuge in amorous novels. But tourists and opportunists are making inroads into the area, and the balance of nature is making a dangerous shift. Translated by Peter Bush.
