Item description for El hombre que amaba el sol (Spanish Edition) by Homero Aridjis...

Every man has two names Dthe first is given to him at birth, the second he chooses when he comes to know himself. Thus, Toms is driven to adopt the name Tonatiuh, the nhuatl word for Sun He who makes the day. He feels that there is a burning sphere in his chest; that life is calling out to him. Through Toms, Homero Aridjis guides us to the light, to the origins of life. Ancient cultures, revered wisdom, naguales (sorcerers), and pyramid secrets are some of the mysteries revealed in this novel. Description in Spanish: Hay dos nombres en la vida de un hombre: el que le ponen cuando nace y el que se da a s mismo cuando sabe quin es. Por ello, Toms adopta el nombre del Sol en nhuatl: Tonatiuh, El que va haciendo el da. Toms Tonatiuh sabe que en su pecho hay un disco ardiente; que la vida lo llama. Sabiduras venerables, antiguas culturas, naguales... tras los pasos de Toms Tonatiuh, un mundo no evidente de misterios solares va relevando secretos en esta novela, donde hay tierras tan deforestadas que las mariposas deben posarse en el polvo y los rayos del Sol bajando por los escalones de una pirmide proyectan la sombra de una serpiente dorada. Homero Aridjis navega con sus lectores hacia la luz, hacia el origen.
