Un libro para no perder las raíces. Una novela que ya es historia.
¿Por qué regresa Urania Cabral a l. a. isla que juró no volver a pisar? ¿Por qué sigue vacía y llena de miedo desde los catorce años? ¿Por qué no ha tenido un solo amor?
En l. a. Fiesta del Chivo (2000) asistimos a un doble retorno. Mientras Urania visita a su padre en Santo Domingo, volvemos a 1961, cuando l. a. capital dominicana aún se llamaba Ciudad Trujillo. Allí un hombre que no suda tiraniza a tres millones de personas sin saber que se gesta una maquiavélica transición a l. a. democracia.
Vargas Llosa, un clásico contemporáneo, relata el fin de una period dando voz, entre otros personajes históricos, al impecable e implacable common Trujillo, apodado el Chivo, y al sosegado y hábil medical professional Balaguer (sempiterno presidente de l. a. República Dominicana).
Con un ritmo y una precisión difícilmente superables, este peruano common muestra que l. a. política puede consistir en abrirse camino entre cadáveres, y que un ser inocente puede convertirse en un regalo truculento.

Masoliver Ródenas, los angeles Vanguardia
