Summary note:
  • "Cuando Pericles Aragón, periodista muy crítico con el gobierno de 'el Brujo, ' el dictador salvadoreño, es arrestado y encarcelado, su mujer, Haydée, decide escribir un diario de los acontecimientos. Mientras anota lo que para ella serían las conversaciones con su marido, irá narrando la progresión de los arrestos, el traslado a la Penitenciaría, las prohibiciones de las visitas y, simultáneamente, el entorno familiar y social del matrimonio. Se produce entonces un golpe de Estado. Y en él está implicado precisamente Clemen, el hijo disoluto de ambos."--Page 4 of cover.
  • "Set in an extraordinary period of El Salvador's history, April and May of 1944, when despised dictator Maximiliano Martínez Hernández evaded an ill-conceived military coup only to be toppled by the brave and disciplined response of civil society. The clandestinely organized campaign that unified students, commercial interests, and tradespeople stands as a landmark moment in Latin America's 20th century. Here, the author traces its events in parallel narrative sections. Anguished diary entries of Haydée Aragón, the well-heeled wife of a political prisoner from a military family alternate with episodes from the painful shared adventures of a soldier and a civilian who risked all in the coup and happen to be Haydée's nephew and son."--Críticas Magazine.
