Item description for La montaña de las mariposas by Homero Aridjis...

Homero discovers his double birth: First, when experimenting with the ephemeral substance of life in front of danger when with a shotgun he hurts a bird that is his own body and the second, during his convalescence, as he finds his destiny in books and makes the decision to be a writer. This is a novel of initiation to love and literature, where realism is the beginning and the end for imagination.

Description in Spanish: En La montaa de las mariposas, Homero nio, hijo de Nicias y de Josefina, descubre su doble nacimiento: el primero, al experimentar la sustancia efmera de la vida frente al peligro de su muerte cuando con una escopeta hiere al ave que es su propio cuerpo& y el segundo, durante su convalecencia, al encontrar su destino en los libros y tomar la decisin de ser un escritor. En esta novela de iniciacin al amor y la literatura, donde el realismo es principio y fin para la imaginacin, Homero Aridjis vuelve sobre la memoria, y desciende por los laberintos velados de la biografa para cumplir su mxima literaria: posar en palabras la vida invertida, aquella que sin cesar se condena al olvido y que espera ver la luz de lo innombrable en la escritura.
