Novel - Catálogos, 1998


The odyssey lived out by the Peronist generation of the 1970's has its novel: the story of a Penelope of Buenos Aires who receives news of the imminent return of her Ulysses, the disappeared activist. Formulated like a dense weave of words, this novel describes the secret form of the blood-curdling history of Argentina after the military coup d'état. The port of Buenos Aires, the ex actress and activist Estela Castro, the ex film director and Peronist revolutionary Jorge Lucero and his son Juan Facundo –because there must be a Telemachus in this resolution across generations of an inheritance issue– are the protagonists of this text, as poetic as it is political.
