Item description for Cristobal Nonato (Entre Voces) (Spanish Edition) by Carlos Fuentes...

''I cling desperately to my mother's womb.'' Acid rain bathes Makesicko City, the world's most populated and polluted city. The government's control and manipulation mechanisms are ruthless. Festivities and contests keep the masses under their spell. To win one of these contests a couple must give birth to their child on October 12, within the first minute of the day. Sensing the world's clamor from his mother's womb, Cristobal is left to ponder -is being born really worth it? Description in Spanish: Una lluvia acida cae sobre Makesicko City, la urbe mas poblada y mas contaminada. Los mecanismos de control politico son implacables y la manipulacion mantiene a las masas enajenadas en festejos y concursos, uno de ellos, el premio a la pareja cuyo hijo nazca en el primer minuto del 12 de octubre. En el vientre de su madre, donde cavila y desde donde percibe los fragores del mundo, Cristobal se pregunta: vale la pena nacer?.
