Cruz de olvido by Carlos Cortés( Book )

15 editions published between 1998 and 2016 in Spanish and held by 125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Después de diez años en la revolución sandinista, Martín Amador regresa a Costa Rica para aclarar la noticia del asesinato su hijo, junto a otros seis jóvenes, en la Cruz de la Alajuelita. Allí se reencuentra con sus compañeros de generación: políticos, jueces, figuras clave de los medios de comunicación, que han alcanzado las más altas esferas de la llamada Suiza centroamericana; país en el que, según se afirma, "no pasa nada desde el Big Bang". Ahora descubrirá la realidad oculta del poder: los excesos, la corrupción, su implicación en turbias tramas internacionales y en el crimen organizado. Su viaje, sobrecogedor y alucinante, por barrios, calles y locales nocturnos de San José es un descenso a los infiernos de la violencia, la decadencia y la miseria moral, donde sólo unos pocos resisten. Martín, a sus cuarenta años, se enfrenta a su tiempo y a sí mismo; muertos los ideales revolucionarios, fallidos los amores de juventud, se aferrará a la tentación del olvido

Facing the inevitable ennui after the revolutionary excitement, an ex-Sandinista of Costa Rican origin must return to his country. In a new age he can barely understand, he returns to the Switzerland of Central America, where nothing has happened since the Big Bang. Part report, part confession, and partly a look at an uneasy history, Carlos Cortš explores a world of questions with no answers and the theme of people living without ideologies or utopias
