Memory of Fire Trilogy #01: Genesis Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Genesis, the first volume in Eduardo Galeanos Memory of Fire trilogy, is both a meditation on the clashes between the Old World and the New and, in the authors words, an attempt to “rescue the kidnapped memory of all America.” It is a fierce, impassioned, and kaleidoscopic historical experience that takes us from the creation myths of the Makiritare Indians of the Yucatan to Columbuss first, joyous moments in the New World to the English capture of New York.

About the Author

Eduardo Galeano‘s works, which have been translated into twenty-eight languages, include Memory of Fire (three volumes); Open Veins of Latin America; Soccer in Sun and Shadow; Days and Nights of Love and War; The Books of Embraces; Upside Down; and Mirrors. Born in Montevideo, he lived in exile in Argentina and Spain for years before returning to Uruguay. He was the recipient of the first Lannan Prize for Cultural Freedom and the front-runner for Spain's esteemed Cervantes award.
