The Blind Coast

Carlos María Domínguez

NOVELA. MONDADORI, 2010. 176 PAGES.

The Blind Coast is a story of misinformation, obscure strategems, sudden twists and identity switches. In the middle of winter, Arturo Balz picks up a girl who goes by the name of Cambodia on a highway leading to the Uruguayan coast. Neither knows that they are both affected by the same secrets dating back to the time of the Argentinian military dictatorship, until a surprising question changes their lives forever. The Blind Side shows how the world is driven by misunderstandings and how life weaves its stories in exquisite silence. In this book, as in other great works, the author works severely and secretly, his genius apparent in his depiction of a compact, closed and autonomous world told with admirable precision.    

"This is a moving story told in breathtaking prose. A gripping,

beautiful and imperturbable account of the passing of time

and the suffering and dreams of the victims of the Argentinian dictatorship."

Juan Marsé

 

"A new vision of events linked to the military dictatorship in Argentina,

told via an exciting, disturbing story which draws in the reader

with its magic and intelligence. Carlos María Domínguez, a major figure

in contemporary Latin American fiction, surprises us once more with his

rhetorical technique which has the rare quality of being able to fuse

the story with deeper reflections on books and literature.

This is undoubtedly a great choice for great readers."
