Gioconda Belli

NOVEL. SEIX BARRAL, 1996. 342 PAGES.

Melisandra dangles her legs over the river that flows slowly next to her grandfather's farm. She is waiting with the patience characteristic of the inhabitants of Fagua for the annual arrival of the smugglers who bring news of the world. But this time a stranger comes with them wanting to take her on the adventure she always dreamed of.

Gioconda Belli recreates one of the myths that has accompanied man since the beginning of thought: the search for Utopia. She does so in a gripping, sensual story that transports us to a near future in which our redemption can only be found in love and imagination.
