Item description for El Mocho (Alfaguara) (Spanish Edition) by Jose Donoso...

With this work, the author renders to us those disappeared during Pinochets times, and the most general and intense dramas lived by Chile in all its history. El Mocho is about the relationship between a young boy whose father has died in the Chilean copper mines, and Don Arstides, "el Mocho", who is the coal mines watchman where most of the village works. Throughout the novel, Donoso investigates the origin of those families who came from Spain to live in Chile and who contributed to the lifestyles and values of subsequent generations.

Description in Spanish: Obra fundamental de Donoso por su carcter de resumen simblico de todas sus preocupaciones y de la honestidad del autor. Con ello el autor nos remite a los desaparecidos de Pinochet, a los dramas ms generales e intensos vividos por Chile en toda su historia. En las minas de cobre chilenas un nio ha perdido a su padre, y lo quiere enterrar llevando a su sepultura una caja con prendas suyas de vestir.
