About this product
- DescriptionThis book is the second volume in Manuel Scorza's five-part velistic cycle entitled La guerra silenciosa (The Silent War). In his saga, Scorza describes an Andean peasant uprising that he witnessed in the 1960's. Although many of the names, places, dates, and events are real, the author fictionalizes his testimonial by adding humor, myth, and fantasy. Garabombo, the vel's titular protagonist, is modeled on Fermin Espiza, an Indian whom Scorza knew personally. Although the fictionalized portrait adheres rather closely to its model, Scorza endows the velistic Garabombo with the attribute of a symbolic invisibility.
