Amazon.com description: Product Description:

Cristóbal Nonato se desarrolla en el México de 1992, cuando se han cumplido todas las predicciones catastrofistas que pesaban sobre el país, y la manipulación mantiene a las masas enajenada en toda suerte de festejos y concursos.


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

Conceived exactly nine months before the five-hundredth anniversary of Columbus's discovery of the New World, the narrator of Christopher Unborn spends the novel waiting to be born. But what kind of world will he be delivered into? "Makesicko City," as the punning narrator calls it, is not doing well in this alternate, worst-case-scenario 1992. Politicians are selling pieces of their country to the United States. A black, acid rain falls relentlessly, forewarning of the even worse ecological catastrophes to come. Gangs of children, confined to the slums, terrorize their wealthy neighbors. A great novel of ideas and a work of aesthetic boldness, Christopher Unborn is a unique, and quite funny, work from one of the twentieth century's most respected authors.
