Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description:
Yo vengo de una familia en la que cada miembro dañaba de algún modo a los demás. Luego, arrepentidos, cada uno se dañaba a sí mismo.» Un hombre es humillado por su patrón; su hijo quisiera humillarlo más. El hijo del Presidente se rebela contra su padre, pero depende de su protección. Una mujer, por amor, sufre el sadismo de su marido. Un comandante debe escoger cuál de sus dos hijos morirá. Un cura esconde a su hija en una aldea. Todas las familias felices es la polifonía narrativa de los ramales conflictivos del México contemporáneo y, por extensión, del mundo. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION A rancher wants his four sons to become priests –they think differently. A mother relinquishes her career as a singer and wonders if it was worth it. Her daughter has given up on the world and lives through reality TV shows. A woman suffers her husband’s sadism and remembers how their love began. The different stories in this novel are punctuated by choruses, some humorous, most of them tragic, which lend their voice to the voiceless: young beggars, raped daughters, orphans, dealers, and hard core gangs among others—it is the narrative polyphony of the conflicts of emporary Mexico and the world.
