From Publishers Weekly:

This second novel by the acclaimed Basque author of Fuegos con Limon (Lemon Fire, Tusquets, 1996 ) has been compared to Lazarillo de Tormes, a classic picaresque novel by an anonymous 16th-century Spanish author. Antibula, an imaginary European kingdom that is reminiscent of both Austria-Hungary's Balkan outposts and Spain during its civil war, is the home of the young protagonist [during the years 1916 to 1928]. Like Lazarillo, he is illegitimate, but unlike the noble Lazarillo, he is of uncertain heritage. The nameless narrator, the son of a mysterious foreigner and a loving mother, is raised by his mean-spirited grandfather. Throughout this excellent story, the youth awakens to the cruelties and complexities of the world, discovers love, and learns to cope with death. These are familiar themes, no doubt, but what sets Aramburu's work apart is the poetic quality of his language, the rich array of his characters, and his subtle satire. Fascinating reading, this is recommended for all academic libraries, public libraries with Spanish-language collections, and contemporary fiction sections in large bookstores. Nedra C.

Book Description TusQuets Editores, 2000. Condition: New. Ya sabíamos de la incuestionable habilidad de Fernando Aramburu para crear personajes e historias de auténtico fuste; nos lo había revelado con su primera novela, Fuegos con limón (Andanzas 279), que obtuvo en 1997 el Premio Ramón Gómez de la Serna y ha sido traducida recientemente al alemán, y nos lo confirmó con los cuentos de No ser no duele (Andanzas 316). Los ojos vacíos , su segunda novela, está destinada a situarle entre los escritores de mayor interés y permanencia en las letras españolas. Agosto de 1916: corren tiempos de tribulación en Antíbula ; el monarca de este país ha sido asesinado ominosamente, la reina ha intentado huir de forma vergonzosa y se respiran en el ambiente aires de dictadura. Un extranjero un tanto misterioso llega a la hospedería del viejo Cuiña . La convulsión política -a la que no parece del todo ajeno- le arrastrará pronto al desastre, pero de sus amores furtivos con la joven hija del hospedero nacerá con el tiempo el protagonista y narrador de la novela. Considerado, por bastardo, como hijo del demonio, el niño parece, efectivamente, marcado por un invisible estigma que le hará crecer en medio de deslumbrantes descubrimientos y crueles decepciones. La miserable ferocidad del abuelo, la dulzura triste de la madre, el despertar de los sentidos o la felicidad que dan los libros serán los puntos de referencia de una vida que, como todas tal vez, sólo aspira a entender el caos que la rodea. *** Nota: EL COSTE DE ENVÍO A CANARIAS ES 11.49 EUROS.
