Description:

New York. 1977. Harper & Row. 1st American Edition. Very Good In Dustjacket. 21. 214 pages. March 1977. hardcover. Jacket design by Oscar Liebman. 0060138149. keywords: September 9. inventory # 10263. FROM THE PUBLISHER - This is a novel of accusation, of outcry, of a silent war, of endless fears. It is a novel based on horrible fact-the exploitation and brutalization of a Peruvian Indian community in the high Andes by an international corporation, by landlords, by the military and police and government officials. Explosive, revolutionary and epic, it has been critically acclaimed in France, Italy, Spain and Latin America. Tragic, ironic, passionate and lyrical, DRUMS FOR RANCAS is an extraordinary chronicle filled with people of simple truth and dignity in a landscape of cruelty that would seem almost mythical were it not real. MANUEL SCORZA was born in Lima in 1928. Actively involved in the social struggles in Peru, he was imprisoned and then exiled in 1948. For seven years he wandered all over Latin America working in a variety of jobs. In 1961 he participated in the protest movement against the peasant massacres in the Central Andes of Peru and this experience formed the basis for a series of novels, the first of which is DRUMS FOR RANCAS. Manuel Scorza now lives in Paris and teaches Latin American literature at the Ecole Normale Supérieure de Saint Cloud. He is also the author of several volumes of poetry. ‘An indictment of man’s inhumanity to man. strong, searing, true, tragic.’ - Publihers Weekly. ‘Lit by flashes of Swiftian humor, this dark thundercloud of a novel hovers over a surrealist landscape, bloodstained and terrible.’-Kirkus Reviews. ‘Horrible and mysterious, dreamlike and shocking, these are the two levels on which this incomparable novel is developed. One finishes reading it enriched by its imagery and power. Exciting and impassioned, Drums for Rancas is a true epic, the work of a great poet and seeker of justice.’ - Le Point (Paris). ‘This terrible chronicle, so full of the greatness of truth, is permeated with a lyricism that makes it a first class literary document.’ - El Noticiero Universal (Barcelona). ‘One of the most beautiful and most cruel Latin American novels.’ - Clarin (Buenos Aires). ‘The value of this book is found in the exceptional balance between its real and magic elements, between tragedy and irony.’ - La Stampa (Turin). ‘A huge Goya-style fresco that gives a new dimension to Latin American literature.’ - El Tiempo (Bogota). (original title: Redoble por Rancas, 1970 - Editorial Planeta, Barcelona). Bookseller Inventory #
