Item description for Necesitaba una historia de amor: Y otros cuentos de Bogota (Turquesa/ Turquoise) by Roberto Rubiano Vargas...

A decadent map ofBogota, this work brings to life a city that is bothmodern yetdivisive. Summarized in 17 short stories, a novella, and 18 brief tales, the portrait of this ghostly city always emerges from the ashes and collects decisive moments of life in the 20th century: from the One Thousand Days War through Rojas Pinilla's dictatorship, to the flower generationand the abandonment of postmodern life at the beginning of the 21st century. Themes of loneliness andalienation are a constant presence throughout this literary and historic view of one of Columbia's most important cities.
Este libro se podra leer como un impecable mapa de Bogot---un mapa decadente de una ciudad modernaperoexcluyente, consumida a menudo por las llamas de un incendio perpetuo. Resumida en 17 cuentos, una novela corta y 18 relatos breves, el retrato de esta ciudad fantasmal emerge siempre de las cenizas y recoge momentos decisivos de la vida en el siglo 20: desde la Guerra de los Mil Das yla dictadura de Rojas Pinilla, hasta la generacin de las flores. Los dos temas centrales---la soledady el ser diferente a los dems---surgen a travs de toda la obra.
