Abstract:

"La casa de los ángeles rotos es una saga familiar épica, encabezada por el patriarca Angelote, que transcurre durante la última fiesta de cumpleaños que este celebra en su casa de San Diego con ocasión de su inminente muerte a manos de un cáncer letal. Pero cuando la madre de Angelote, mamá America, fallece en fechas cercanas a la fiesta, este debe organizar también su funeral y decide celebrar dos actos familiares en el mismo fin de semana: una doble despedida. Entre los asistentes está su tocayo Angelín, que vuela desde Seattle para presentar sus respetos y despedirse, y que se encuentra con la gente con la que comparte un progenitor pero, como el fin de semana no para de recordarle, no su vida.Esta es la historia de Angelote y Angelín, de lo que implica ser mexicano en Estados Unidos, haber vivido dos vidas y cruzado una frontera, y sobre cómo la muerte hace emerger las partes de tu vida que habías olvidado, haya sido o no por elección propia. La casa de los ángeles rotos, un retrato finamente cincelado de esta familia profundamente compleja, es Urrea en su más pura esencia: brillante y rebosante de humor, auténtica en cada giro, esta novela consolida a Urrea como el maestro narrador de la verdad sobre la experiencia mexicoamericana."--Page [4] of cover.

The house of the broken angels is an epic family saga, headed by the patriarch Angelote, which takes place during the last birthday party that he celebrates at his home in San Diego on the occasion of his imminent death at the hands of a lethal cancer. But when Angelote's mother, Mama America, dies on dates close to the party, he must also organize his funeral and decides to hold two family events on the same weekend: a double farewell. Among the attendees is his namesake Angelin, who flies from Seattle to pay his respects and say goodbye, and he meets people with whom he shares a parent but, as the weekend does not stop reminding him, not his life. The story of Angelote and Angelín, what it means to be Mexican in the United States, to have lived two lives and crossed a border, and about how death brings out the parts of your life that you had forgotten, whether or not it was your own choice. The house of the broken angels, a finely chiseled portrait of this deeply complex family, is Urrea in its purest essence: bright and full of humor, authentic in every turn, this novel consolidates Urrea as the master storyteller of the truth.
