Service95 Recommends Retrospective by Juan Gabriel Vasquez


 Juan Gabriel Vásquez (translated by Anne McLean)

What Hay Cartagena Says: Here is a sweeping novel that takes in the Spanish Civil War, the Cultural Revolution in China and the guerrilla movements of 1960s Latin America, all through the lens of a single family. A truly international writer, Vásquez explores the way ideologies shift in the public and private spheres.
