9781906300067: Comrades

Considered a masterpiece when it was first published in 1976, this novel ushered in the new Guatemalan novel, a genre that was political, subversive, and full of youthful anger. Written in a highly original colloquial style, this book shoved the gun-toting language of the Marxist guerrilla—loaded with profanity and insolence—straight into the faces of its amazed readers. The story itself follows the fortunes of a group of young left-wing combatants embroiled in the country's bloody civil war—and shockingly reveals how a generation's revolutionary zeal was colored by a heady mix of sex, drugs, and political ambition.

About the Author:

Marco Antonio Flores is a journalist, an essayist, a poet, and one of Central America's most acclaimed novelists. He is the author of several books in his native Spanish.

Review:

"The dashed hopes of a revolutionary are narrated in a series of testimonial monologues bristling with profanity, graphic sexuality, bitter humour, and wordplay."  —Roy C. Boland Osegueda on Los compañeros in The Cambridge Companion to the Latin American Novel

"The stylistic innovations, the criticisms of the failed guerrilla movement and the condemnations of government and military violence all broke with past traditions and anticipated the testimonial novel."  —Maureen E. Shea on Los compañeros in Culture and Customs of Guatemala

"Goes against the grain of the typical left-wing 'testimonio,' showing the underbelly of the Revolution, all in a style which is more James Joyce than Che Guevara."  —Stephen Hart, author, A Companion to Latin American Literaure
