Item description for Aitana (Alfaguara) (Spanish Edition) by German Espinosa...

Hinted with autobiographical overtones, this is the story of an extraordinary love deviously trampled by the curse of a dark witch. The crescendo of horror and suspense, joined by the love the narrator feels towards Aitana, his wife, establish a contrast in a novel which attacks the offensively materialistic attitude of humankind and a determined defense to the spiritual values that, according to the author, a better society should be based on.
Description In Spanish: Con tintes autobiogrficos aunque slo en cierta proporcin, esta duodcima novela de Germn Espinosa es, ante todo, la relacin de un amor excelso golpeado de las ms tortuosas maneras por la maldicin de un brujo negro. Ello hace que el mundo siempre sobrecogedor de la narrativa espinosiana cobre en ella, tal vez, su clmax de intensidad y de fantasa. El crescendo de horror y de suspenso, unido a la ternura que el relator siente hacia Aitana, su esposa, a quien considera alma gemela, establecen un contraste conmovedor y de alto poder dramtico en una historia que se desarrolla en medio de la aparente cotidianidad de la Bogot del siglo XXI. En tanto aborda la vida compleja del mundo intelectual y artstico de la capital colombiana, expresado en personajes no difciles de identificar en la vida real entre ellos la esposa del autor, la pintora Josefina Torres, fallecida en 2005 , Aitana entraa un ataque a fondo a la actitud groseramente materialista del hombre actual y una firme defensa de los valores del espritu, en los cuales juzga Espinosa que debe fundarse una sociedad mejor.
