Item description for Blanco sobre negro by Ruben Gallego & Ricardo San Vicente...

The author and protagonist of this impressive narrative is a man who did not allow his handicap and human cruelty silence the voice of his intelligence and sensitivity. Rubn Gallego was born in the Kremlin clinic in Moscow with his twin brother; the first baby passed away a few days later. The second, Rubn, affected with cerebral paralysis, lived with his mother locked up in a hospital for a year and a half. Soon he was taken away and his mother was told he was dead. This is the story of his childhood and youth, of his survival as a presumed orphan in sinister orphanages and secret asylums.

Description in Spanish: El autor y protagonista de esta impresionante narracin es un hombre que no permiti que su minusvala y la crueldad humana acallaran la voz de su inteligencia y su sensibilidad.

Rubn Gallego naci en Mosc en 1968, en la clnica del Kremlin. Ah llevaron a su madre de urgencias gracias a la intervencin de su abuelo, Ignacio Gallego, dirigente del Partido Comunista Espaol en el exilio. Nacieron mellizos, pero el primer beb falleci a los pocos das. El segundo, Rubn, afectado de parlisis cerebral, vivi con su madre un ao y medio, encerrado en un hospital. Luego se lo quitaron y le dijeron que haba muerto.

ste es el relato de su infancia y su juventud, de su supervivencia como presunto hurfano en siniestros orfanatos secretos y asilos en los que se confinaba a los familiares no presentables de los jerarcas comunistas, en una sociedad donde se ocultaba sistemticamente todo aquello que fuera en contra del mito del hombre nuevo. Un pas donde todo el mundo tena la obligacin de ser feliz.

Escribo sobre la fuerza. Sobre la fuerza que se encuentra en cada uno de nosotros. Sobre la fuerza que rompe todas las barreras, sobre la fuerza que vence. Cada uno de mis relatos es el relato de una victoria.
