Maybe even a preview of a future Saccomanno book. Or an interview with his translator, Andrea Labinger. Stay tuned to find out! The sample that won her the grant was pretty. Is that when you made an offer? We were intrigued, but given the length of this book pages! Thankfully, Andrea had a proposal that provided a really solid overview of this mosaic novel about Villa Gesell, a resort town with a Nazi past.
How do they pass the time? Murder, for one. Adulterous affairs as well. Other acts of violence. Other crimes.
And in the background, four wealthy men pull all the strings, taking advantage of everyone they can for personal gain.
Paraphrasing P. Trilogy , it employs a mosaic structure, with stories constantly being interrupted by advertisements or other stories, only to pick up a few pages later, building and building in a sort of symphonic whirlwind of thwarted ambition and desperate acts.

New Release! 77 by Guillermo Saccomanno
Paranoia and terror abound. Gomez, a gay teacher of literature, attempts to remain inconspicuous while pupils and loved ones are disappeared by government toughs roving the streets in ubiquitous green Falcon cars. He fears he is the victim of a conspiracy, but just what that conspiracy is remains occluded.
