Item description for En Salvaje Compania/in Savage Company by Manuel Rivas...

The dark side of reality emerges in unforgettable poetic images. A priest, Don Xil, explains to a young farmer, Rose, that the beautiful women in the paintings on the walls of the church are sinners. A mouse, Matacns, a cunning hunter in his first life, is caught by a cat that is none other than bagpipe player and anarchist Arturo de Lousame. They all speak: people, animals and birds recreate the universal identity of feelings. Their voices, full of humor and tenderness, intertwine this great novel.

Description in Spanish: Los crculos ocultos de la realidad emergen como espirales de humo, en inolvidables imgenes poticas, pero tambin en forma de rachas de viento y lluvia, de tormentas que desvelan perturbadores secretos y vidas conmovedoras.

La seora del pazo, Misia, cuenta cmo los trescientos cuervos que dibujan el paisaje del cielo son los poetas-guerreros del ltimo rey de Galicia. Un sacerdote, Don Xil, explica a una joven campesina, Rosa, que las pinturas de las hermossimas mujeres que se descubren en las paredes de la iglesia son retratos de pecadoras. Un ratn, Matacns, cazador furtivo en su primera vida, es atrapado por un gato que no es otro que el gaitero y anarquista Arturo de Lousame. Un murcilago, Gaspar, relata su suicidio a un lagarto que va en peregrinacin a San Andrs de Teixido...

Reviews - What do customers think about En Salvaje Compania/in Savage Company?

Imaginative small piece of magic  Jul 8, 2000
In the unreal everyday life, in a small town, where stories develop themselves in a bowl of emotions, deceased people turn into animals: lizards, mice, spiders and observe the slow motion of feelings from the deepest of their personal forests. A nicely written touching contemporary fairy tale.
