Gesell dome by Guillermo Saccomanno( Book )

16 editions published between 2012 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 327 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Winner of the 2013 Dashiell Hammett Prize--Through a skillful weaving of characters and plotlines, coming together like a completed puzzle, Saccomanno has crafted a monumental novel where individual stories unnerve us while building to the unexpected and explosive finale."--El Mundo. Like True Detective through the lenses of William Faulkner and John Dos Passos, Gesell Dome is a mosaic of misery, a page-turner that will keep you enthralled right until its shocking end. Opening with reports of a child abuse scandal at an elementary school, then weaving its way through dozens of sordid storylines and characters--including various murders, corrupt politicians and real-estate moguls, and the Nazi past of the city--Gesell Dome chronicles the dark underbelly of a popular resort town tensely awaiting the return of the tourist season. Two-time winner of the Dashiell Hammett Prize, Guillermo Saccomanno is Argentina's foremost noir writer, crafting incisive, unflinching books that reveal the inequities of contemporary life. Guillermo Saccomanno is the author of numerous novels and story collections, including El buen dolor, winner of the Premio Nacional de Literatura, and 77 and Gesell Dome, both of which won the Dashiell Hammett Prize. He also received Seix Barral's Premio Biblioteca Breve de Novela for El oficinista and the Rodolfo Walsh Prize for nonfiction for Un maestro. Andrea G. Labinger is the translator of more than a dozen works from the Spanish"--Provided by publisher
El oficinista by Guillermo Saccomanno( Book )

20 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 160 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Hombres y mujeres completamente normales marchan a diario hacia sus puestos de trabajo en una ciudad arrasada por atentados guerrilleros, amenazada por hordas de hambrientos, niños asesinos y perros clonados, vigilada por helicópteros artillados y bautizados con lluvia ácida. Entre ellos, un oficinista dispuesto a la humillación con tal de conservar su empleo… hasta que se enamora y se permite soñar con ser otro. ¿De qué abyecciones es capaz un hombre por aferrarse a un sueño? El oficinista cuenta una historia que pasó ayer, pero que aún no ha sucedido, y, sin embargo, transcurre ahora. No es que el futuro esté cerca, es que tal vez ya pasó. Y nosotros no nos hemos dado cuenta, ocupadísimos como estábamos en cuidar un trabajo, un sueldo, una apariencia. Esta novela encierra una antiutopía, un mundo a lo Ballard, pero también dostoievskiano." -- Cubierta
77 by Guillermo Saccomanno( Book )

12 editions published between 2008 and 2019 in 4 languages and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

El terror patrulla las calles. Pelos quemados y sapos muertos intimidan un edificio. Un vecino desaparece. La represión acorrala. Astrólogos, videntes, profecías y maleficios. El ocultismo impera sobre la razón aniquilada. Un estudiante secundario chupado en una clase sobre el Facundo. Hijos de gorilas en la lucha armada peronista. Un montonero, su compañera embarazada y su amante envueltas en una relación lésbica. Es el invierno del 77. El momento más cruel de la dictadura. El profesor Gómez, homosexual, cabecita negra, simpatizante del peronismo, no puede refugiarse en la literatura, tampoco huir de su pasado ni del presente que socava sus certezas. Al acostarse con un policía, el profesor busca información sobre su alumno secuestrado. El bombardeo del 55 y sus consecuencias reverberan en una novela desesperada sobre el miedo y la complicidad civil, pero también sobre padres e hijos, un conflicto más político que generacional atravesado por la contradicción civilización / barbarie. Saccomanno escribió una novela lunática y macabra sobre la cotidianidad bajo el terror, una historia exasperada, que fascina y espanta en su desborde

"Orlando Balvo, "Nano", discípulo de Paulo Freire, fue secuestrado el 24 de marzo del 76. Logró sobrevivir a la cárcel de Rawson pero quedó sordo por efecto de la tortura. Se exilió en Roma gracias a monseñor Jaimes de Nevares, fundador de la Asamblea Permanente para los Derechos Humanos, quien, a su vuelta al país en 1985, le sugirió́ partir hacia Huncal, un paraje hostil perdido en la precordillera patagónica. Allí se dedicaría a la alfabetización de una comunidad mapuche."--Page 4 of cover
