This set of ten stories - whose plots cover the years of dictatorship and the transition to democracy during the 90s - reflects the recent history of Chile. The horror of state violence, secret prisons, intelligence services, the Constitution of 1980 and the installation of neoliberalism, the handover of state companies at the price of eggs. Then, the demobilization of citizens, the exacerbation of individualism, the fierce market empire, the false neoliberal promise to produce wealth for all, the delusion of making Chile the jaguar of Latin America, the privatization of everything, the jibarización of the State , the management of the media.
An essential book - both for today and yesterday - which endeavours to place us at the very heart of our lost humanism: the one of a national society which has been deprived of its spirit of fellowship.
