About this product
- DescriptionOn a summer day at the arcade, timid sixteen-year-old Ignacio Canas encounters two charismatic rebels: El Zarco ( Blue Eyes ) and his gorgeous girl, Tere. Entranced, he crosses the border into their dangerous world, becoming their partner in crimes that quickly escalate.Twenty-five years later, Tere materializes in Canas's office, needing help. Canas has settled back into middle-class life, becoming a successful defense lawyer. Zarco has matured into a convict of some infamy. Yet somehow, with new stakes, this three-way affair will begin again.With his usual brio, Javier Cercas surveys the borders between right and wrong, respectability and criminality, and to what extent we can pass between them or determine on which side we ultimately fall. This brilliantly plotted tale firmly establishes him as one of the most rewarding velists writing today.
