Item description for Los libros arden mal by Manuel Rivas & Dolores Vilavedra...

The lives of books, people and language are crossed and interlaced in an intense story of suspense that occur from the 19th Century to present time: The launderer who sees films in the flowing river, the anarchist boxer, the tango singer, the compulsive collector of Bibles, and many more. This is a universe populated with unusual voices, of memories that resound or murmur in an unforgettable way. Description In Spanish: La pesadilla que vive la ciudad no es una ficcin. S, es verdad. Estn quemando las bibliotecas de los ateneos, del centro de estudios Germinal, del seor Casares... El humo no levanta el vuelo. Es pegajoso. Huele a carne humana. En esta novela, las vidas de los libros, las personas y el lenguaje se cruzan y entrelazan en un intenso relato de suspense que transcurre desde el siglo XIX hasta nuestros das, entre la atrocidad autoritaria y la indomable libertad. La lavandera que ve pelculas en el fluir del ro, el boxeador anarquista, el baln del Diligent, el cantante de tangos, la cabeza de la mujer negra, la Rosa Taquigrfica, la coccinella septempunctata, el coleccionista compulsivo de Biblias... Los libros arden mal es un universo poblado de voces inslitas, de memorias que retumban o murmuran de forma inolvidable, verdadera literatura donde todo est en vilo.
