9789705804489: El jardin devastado (Spanish Edition)

The Infidel invasion unleashes a celebration of demons in Iraq. One of them, sickened by human vileness, tours the battlefield beside a woman who searches for her loved ones, confident that they survived the daily massacres and mutilations. A hopeless man, reminiscing on his lost loves concludes men and women are enemies from the moment of conception. We besiege, trick, betray, hurt, infect, wound, torture, destruct, and abandon one another. We wait for the next in line. And then, there is always revenge. . Description in Spanish: Tras la invasion de los infieles el infierno se desata en Irak y los demonios se regocijan. Uno de ellos, cada vez mas asqueado ante la vileza humana que atestigua, acompana a una mujer que busca entre los muertos a quienes ama, confiando en que hayan sobrevivido a las masacres y mutilaciones cotidianas. Mientras tanto, un hombre sin esperanza recuerda sus desamores y reflexiona: hombre y mujer somos enemigos desde que el espermatozoide y el ovulo se baten por la supremacia. Es la guerra: uno busca reproducirse y escapar, otro reproducirse y negar la huida. Nos asediamos, nos enganamos, nos traicionamos, nos herimos, nos contagiamos, nos laceramos, nos torturamos, nos destruimos. Al final nos abandonamos. Y luego esperamos al siguiente de la fila, el limbo se transforma en cuartel, brotan el miedo, la delacion, la paranoia: todos culpables salvo prueba en contrario. A continuacion, la venganza.
