Item description for Abril Rojo / Red April (Narrativa (Punto de Lectura)) by Santiago Roncagliolo...

Ayacucho, Peru. Celebrations for the 2000 Holy Week are about to commence and local deputy district attorney Flix Chacaltana Saldvar, a romantic fainthearted individual, is about to face the investigation of a brutal murder. This murder marks the beginning of a series of mysterious deaths, where one by one, the people interviewed by him are eliminated. Faced with such horror, he begins to use the non-traditional methods of the Peruvian police and militia. Abril rojo is a novel about Peru s history and secret codes, a novel about the conflict between the military and the Shinning Path during Fujimori s term.

Description In Spanish: En Ayacucho y a poco de comenzar la Semana Santa del ao 2000, el fiscal Flix Chacaltana Saldvar, solitario, pusilnime, amante de la poesa y de las tradiciones ms rancias, ha de enfrentarse a la investigacin de un bestial asesinato. Aunque en este pas no hay terrorismo por orden superior y ms cuando estn a punto de celebrarse las elecciones presidenciales, el fiscal no descarta la autora de Sendero Luminoso. El crimen es el inicio de una serie de muertes misteriosas. Uno tras otro caen todos los que hablan con l. El fiscal, que nunca haba hecho nada que no estuviese estipulado en los estatutos de su institucin, ha de acercarse a los irregulares mtodos de la polica y el ejrcito peruanos. Poco a poco se convierte en un indeseable para todos, y en un desconocido para s mismo. Abril rojo es una novela sobre Per, su historia, sus smbolos, la orga de corrupcin que satura el pas, y sobre la guerra que se libr entre el ejrcito y Sendero Luminoso durante el mandato de Fujimori. Una guerra en la que se pierde Per y que el pueblo, abandonado en su miseria, sufre sin entender. Oscilando entre la aparente objetividad del fiscal y la fuerza de los hechos, el relato desarrolla con excelente ritmo una trama compleja donde sobresalen veinte aos de violencia brutal.
