Item description for La Mano Del Amo by Tomas Eloy Martinez...

Dominated by impetuous, disturbing yet inspiring language, this is a beautiful story of the possibility of flying towards altitudes never before dreamed and an uncertain search, possibly nonexistent: the search for happiness. Holder of fortunate vocal cords, Carmona, the main character, is the universal delegate of the oppressed voices, in a literal and figurative sense. This is the frustrated, disturbed, and very real prose of one of the most remarkable Latin American writers.

Description in Spanish: En un territorio dividido por una zanja construida un siglo antes --una muralla china hacia abajo--, el paraso no est en el mismo sitio para todos. Unas montaas amarillas esconden la felicidad; hay un ro redondo de aguas prpuras, una luna con lunas; un pas sin mapas y un tiempo solitario y sin pasado, donde conviven vivos y muertos, recuerdos, sueos y realidades.

En la familia de Carmona, Madre decide el destino de los dems. Ella es tambin quien no pierde su poder ni siquiera con la muerte. Carmona es un cantante de voz prodigiosa para quien la dicha del paraso consiste en ser hurfano. Ha heredado una casa y unos gatos que prolongan la voluntad de Madre, quien slo se quiere a s misma.

El autor de El vuelo de la reina, Premio Alfaguara de novela 2002, crea aqu un universo distinto que nos permite acercarnos al humor y al sexo y encontrarnos tambin con otros temas que nos preocuparn siempre: los conflictos sociales y polticos, el destino, la muerte, y la bsqueda de la felicidad en un mundo en continuo proceso de transformacin. Pero, sobre todo, esta novela puede ser leda como una parbola sobre la creacin artstica doblegada por el poder.
