Item description for La buena terrorista (The Good Terrorist) (Narrativa (Punto de Lectura)) by Doris May Lessing...
The Good Terrorist recounts the story of a loose-knit group of political vagabonds. Alice Mellings, the central figure in this tale, whose contempt for her mother's middle-class values informs her rebellion, ends up decorating the squatters' squalid home and cooking for her comrades. Her efforts go largely unappreciated for the others are more interested in radical political actions, such as bombing and being recruited by the IRA. Lessing portrays terrorism as psychopathological to create a chilling and compelling story. Description in Spanish: Alice, una mujer sensata y realista, se ocupa desde hace tiempo de Jasper, un homosexual con quien comparte un radicalismo de izquierdas un tanto difuso y a menudo contradictorio. Ambos recalan en una casa en ruinas junto con un grupo de jvenes deseosos por colaborar con el IRA. Alice lucha en la calle, pinta consignas en las paredes, participa en piquetes huelguistas, pero al mismo tiempo se entrega con fervor al cuidado de las cuatro paredes maltrechas donde vive para convertirlas en un lugar habitable. Es as, con fina irona y un peculiar sentido del humor, como Doris Lessing muestra los resortes inesperados de una mente en apariencia dogmtica y maniquesta.
