Sinopsis de GLAXO

Glaxo is a chilling novel of betrayal, romance, and murder, from a major Latin American writer being published in English for the first time. In a derelict town in Argentina's pampa, a decades-old betrayal simmers among a group of friends. One returns from serving time for a crime he didn't commit; another, a policeman with ties to the military regime, discovers his wife's infidelity; a third lays dying. And an American missionary has been killed. But what happened among these men? Spinning through a series of voices and timelines, Glaxo reveals a chilling story of four boys who grow up breaking horses and idolizing John Wayne, only to become adults embroiled in illicit romances, government death squads, and, ultimately, murder. Around them, the city falls apart. Both an austere drama and a suspenseful whodunit, Glaxo crackles with tension and mystery. And it marks the stunning English-language debut of a major Latin American writer.

1 reseñas sobre el libro GLAXO

Cuando escribo intento usar frases cortas, pocas derivadas, una idea por oración y no muchas de estas por párrafo. Busco ser amigable con el lector. Que la narración fluya y que todo sea legible. Pero viene Ronsino y hace párrafos de una oración, con siete u ocho comas y subordinadas dentro de subordinadas y sin embargo la lectura es sencilla y fluye. Lo corto del libro juega a su favor y esa historia de pueblo chico infierno grande, con toques de Onetti te deja buscando más. No hay una sola forma de narrar, por suerte.
