Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: From the celebrated author of The English Patient and Anil's Ghost comes a remarkable and intimate novel of lives that intersect across continents and time. In the 1970s in Northern California, a father and his teenage daughters, Anna and Claire, work their farm with the help of Coop, an enigmatic young man who makes his home with them. Their makeshift family is shattered by an incident of violence that sets fire to the rest of their lives. Divisadero takes us from San Francisco to the raucous backrooms of Nevada's casinos and eventually to the landscape of southern France. As the narrative moves back and forth through time and place, we find each of the characters trying to find some foothold in a present shadowed by the past. Description in Spanish: En la mas intima y hermosa de sus historias, Michael Ondaatje narra la vida de Anna, quien tras un brutal suceso acontecido en su hogar, tendra que dejar atras la vida en la granja de California y empezar un nuevo camino en el sur de Francia. Lejos de su padre, de su gemela Claire y de Coop un misterioso muchacho acogido por la familia encontrara en la literatura y en la reconstruccion de la biografia de un importante escritor la manera de conciliarse con su pasado. Una novela de vidas cruzadas que se extiende por dos continentes y a lo largo de un siglo. Tras El paciente ingles, Ondaatje demuestra su extraordinaria capacidad para moverse en el dificil terreno de los sentimientos y para tratar las pasiones, las perdidas y la persistencia del pasado, asi como las exigencias de la familia, del amor y de los recuerdos. Un relato de inusual intensidad y belleza capaz de emocionarnos y dejarnos sin respiro.
