Item description for Muertos de amor (Spanish Edition) by Jorge Lanata...

Between 1963 and 1964 in Salta, Argentina, a guerrilla group, led by journalist Masetti sought to emulate the victory of the Cuban guerrilla warfare led by Fidel Castro and Ch Guevara in Cuba. With a raw and candid narrative, award-winning journalist, Lanata, tells the story of a revolutionary dream, one that raises the ever-present question of the true link between violence and revolution.
Descriotion In Spanish: Por qu mierda me cuesta tanto ahora decir la palabra: Revolucin. Si era eso lo que bamos a hacer, una Revolucin, la Revolucin, revolucionar, revolucionarios, eso ramos, hombres de la Revolucin. Tal vez sea eso lo que quieran: que les hable de la Revolucin que no pudimos hacer. Muertos de amor es el relato de un sueo revolucionario, el del Ejrcito Guerrillero del Pueblo, que entre 1963 y 1964 busc reproducir, en el norte de Salta, la guerrilla rural del Che y Fidel Castro en Cuba y que estuvo al mando del periodista Jorge Ricardo Masetti, nombrado Comandante Segundo por el propio Che. Con una prosa descarnada, que no se compadece de nadie ni concede nada, Lanata escribe esta novela lcida y coral en la que interroga a la militancia argentina de los 60 y 70. Y crea su trama como si armara un rompecabezas, uniendo las piezas sueltas de esa breve gesta guerrillera tan audaz como inexplicable; una trama en la que se escuchan mltiples voces: testimonios, ancdotas, cartas, denuncias, dilogos de testigos y protagonistas de una historia que exhibe menos certezas que interrogantes. Para acercarse a la verdad de la historia, el autor recurre tanto a la realidad como a la ficcin, y le plantea al lector la pregunta siempre renovada sobre cul es el verdadero vnculo entre violencia y revolucin.
