Item description for El muchacho de los senos de goma/ The Boy with the Silicone Boobs (Spanish Edition) by Sylvia Iparraguirre...

In a Buenos Aires where the poor and the neglected have become an integral part of the scenery, the paths of three individuals cross unexpectedly. Over a backdrop that is at times festive and humorous, at others sordid and melancholic but always as real as it is enigmatic, the characters will change the course of their destinies. Written in the clear yet subtle style that characterizes Sylvia Iparraguirre, the novel condenses the contradictions that abound in today s urban life, where amidst a bombarded of mass messages we are faced with the solitude of our own human condition.
Description in Spanish: Un adolescente que se va de su casa para sobrevivir por su cuenta; un profesor de Filosofia enfrentado con sus propias contradicciones; una mujer traspasada por el dolor de una muerte y a contrapelo de la realidad cruzan imprevistamente sus destinos en una Buenos Aires donde ya se han instalado firmemente la pobreza, el desamparo y la picaresca de los buscavidas. En el transcurso de este relato entranable y singular, los personajes daran un giro a sus destinos, que se rozan entre si sobre el telon de fondo de una ciudad por momentos festiva y humoristica, por momentos sordida y melancolica, siempre tan real como enigmatica. Escrita con la prosa diafana y sutil que distingue a Sylvia Iparraguirre, la novela condensa en sus paginas las contradicciones del mundo urbano de hoy, atravesado por infinitos mensajes y donde, al mismo tiempo, la posibilidad de comunicarse encuentra sus limites y los personajes se enfrentan a la irreductible soledad de su condicion.

Reviews - What do customers think about El muchacho de los senos de goma/ The Boy with the Silicone Boobs (Spanish Edition)?

El muchacho de los senos de goma  Dec 22, 2009
The story takes place in the middle 90`s and the writer uses the background of the city of Buenos Aires, beautifully described. The paths of three characters touch briefly: Cris, a 17 year old boy who wants to leave his home and become independent, Mrs. Vidot, a woman who is grieving the death of her husband and is in so much pain that she seems to be numb to the world, and Mentasti, Cris' philosophy teacher, a man who is struggling with his own contradictions and at times seems to be so detached from reality that he can hardly connect with other human beings.
Iparraguirre presents a society where people are constantly being bombarded by advertising which reaches the smallest and poorest corners of the world. In this society, violence and poverty are coexisting in everyday life. This violence takes the form of an attack on an innocent animal, or the marginalization of people who are forced to live in the street.
The story is narrated in an interesting and sometimes humorous way. I enjoyed it very much and I found myself not being able to put it down. Reading this novel I became more aware of the loneliness and pain that we have to endure but also about the resilience of life.
