A PERFECT DAY

Sebastián Edwards

NOVEL. LA OTRA ORILLA, 2011. 222 PAGES.

The 10th of June 1962 is, apparently, a perfect day. Esteban comes back to his homeland looking for Ofelia, the love of his life. However, she is now living her own life, devoted to her husband and sons. Hours pass by and the wall Ofelia built around her starts to melt. In the same city, the same day, someone disappears mysteriously.

The 10th of June 1962 described in this novel is the day in which the Chilean football team beats the powerful Sovietic Union squad. This day, also, tells also the story of forbidden love and the discovery of a secret in which spies, traitors and heroes are involved.  

Based on the current politic landscape, this thriller surprises us by showing how a time in history ends and another begins with outstanding prose.       

 

"A great narrative plot surrounded by parallel stories

of dreams and betrayals. Passion and sports epic merge

with politics in a novel written with an outstanding prose." 

Marco Antonio de la Parra
