Item description for La mano del emigrante by Manuel Rivas...

This book is different, dangerous and as unforgettable as a tattoo on the arm of a stretcher-bearer who leads us to a hidden side of his life and to a forgotten part of Spain's recent history. Its narration is done in such a different and unique way; Rivas looks for the love and hate relationship between imagination and reality. Thus, he intertwines a fictional story, "La mano del emigrante", a story made up of the author's photographies, "El lbum furtivo", and a journalistic story, "Los nufragos".

Description in Spanish: ste es un libro distinto, arriesgado y tan inolvidable como el tatuaje de un camillero que muestra el lado oscuro de su vida y una parte de la reciente historia de Espaa, ahora infectada por el virus de la desmemoria. Desde la imaginacin y la realidad, se entrelazan tres relatos ---uno de ficcin, La mano del emigrante; otro fotogrfico, El lbum furtivo; y uno ms periodstico, Los nufragos --- para mostrar que, a la hora de la verdad, la aventura humana transcurre entre esas dos naciones: el apego y la prdida. Emigrantes y nufragos viven esa experiencia al lmite de sus fuerzas, el tronco al que se aferran se reblandecen como una almohada de plumas donde depositar los pensamientos de oro. Palabra de nufrago.
