“With direct and forceful narrative and a translation as smooth and peaceful as the quiet narrator himself, this book takes the reader on a days-long search for the past and the present in modern day Bogota. A prominent political cartoonist is shaken when a forgotten uncertainty from the past resurfaces. This psychological study of the concept that what we believe makes us who we are is a masterpiece!”
— Nicole Magistro (W), The Bookworm of Edwards, Edwards, CO

Description


Javier Mallarino es una leyenda viva. Es el caricaturista politico mas
influyente del pais, #un hombre capaz de causar la revocacion de una
ley, trastornar el fallo de un magistrado, tumbar a un alcalde o
amenazar gravemente la estabilidad de un ministerio, y eso con las
unicas armas del papel y la tinta china#. Los politicos le temen y el
gobierno le hace homenajes. A sus sesenta y cinco anos, despues de
cuatro decadas de brillante carrera, puede decir que tiene el pais a sus
pies. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION Upon meeting Ricardo Laverde, Antonio Yammara suspects his new-found friend is hiding something. His fascination with Laverde's mysterious life becomes an obsession the day Laverde is murdered. El ruido de las cosas al caer is a story about a friendship frustrated by circumstances, a story of love in unfavorable times, an X-ray of a generation trapped by fear, and a suspenseful investigation into the past of a man and of a country.
