By Osvaldo Soriano
Translated from Spanish by Nick Caistor
One of Argentina's most important writers gives his vision of the folly and horror of that country's "Dirty War", when thousands of Argentinians "disappeared" in the hands of the military regime. Soriano's gritty, Chandleresque prose builds a harrowing picture of a society in the grip of a bizarre and terrifying struggle.
This is the racy sequel to Soriano's acclaimed novel (also in English from RI) A Funny Dirty Little War.
