La diáspora

Horacio Castellanos Moya.
Resumen
Horacio Castellanos Moya's literary debut which narrates the downfall of the Left who took part in the Salvadoran revolution. The tempestuous deaths of the Salvadoran Revolutionary Front's two main leaders in April 1983 shattered the Party's foundations. Among the dissident voices are intellectuals and artists like Juan Carlos who fled to Mexico City in early 1984, and where he waits for Canada's decision to accept him as a political refugee. Alongside Juan Carlos and in the same Mexico City limbo, we see various other characters marked by the Salvadoran civil war: a young ex-guerrilla who fled the repression, an Argentine journalist who wants to write a book about the conflict, and a musician who supported the revolutionary propaganda from exile and now lives haunted by the guilt. Through the protagonists' past and their current lives, along with the deaths of three guerrillas like Melida Anaya Montes, Salvador Cayetano Carpio, and Roque Dalton, this remarkable novel gives a great account of the Left's downfall, and also of the ongoing diaspora created by the armed conflict.
