Summary
The first baby born on the 500th anniversary of Columbus's discovery of America narrates the history of his family and that of overpopulated, crime-torn Mexico City, a city about to be destroyed by pollution and fire.
Amazon.com description: Product Description:
Una lluvia ácida cae sobre Makesicko City, la urbe más poblada y más contaminada. Los mecanismos de control político son implacables y la manipulación mantiene a las masas enajenadas en festejos y concursos, uno de ellos, el premio a la pareja cuyo hijo nazca en el primer minuto del 12 de octubre. En el vientre de su madre, donde cavila y desde donde percibe los fragores del mundo, Cristóbal se pregunta: ¿vale la pena nacer?. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION “I cling desperately to my mother’s womb.” Acid rain bathes Makesicko City, the world’s most populated and polluted city. The government’s control and manipulation mechanisms are ruthless. Festivities and contests keep the masses under their spell. To win one of these contests a couple must give birth to their child on October 12, within the first minute of the day. Sensing the world’s clamor from his mother’s womb, Cristobal is left to ponder —is being born really worth it?
