Description
A dazzling kaleidoscope of 333 one-page vignettes, this collection by the author of Memory of Fire and Upside Down touches on such topics as childhood and love, music and plants, fear and indignity, and indignation. Eduardo Galeano offers a wry history of his life and times that is at once calmly philosophical and fiercely political, creating a tapestry from such thoughts and memories as the Galeano family's immigration to Uruguay in the early 20th century, the fate of love letters intercepted by a military dictatorship, abuses by the rich and powerful, and Galeano's encounters with generals, bums, dissidents, soccer stars, ducks, snakes, and trees.

"This Uruguayan writer has a way of producing stories reminiscent of folktales, testimonials, and reflections, and of stitching them together into vast historical tapestries…. The current collection, subtitled A Life in Stories, includes excursions into the Mayan concept of time, Peruvian cave paintings, and child laborers in Pakistan, and features walk-on appearances by Hernán Cortés, Diego Maradona, and Michael Jackson. Galeano can be fierce and defiant, as when he inveighs against the I.M.F., the World Bank, and assorted dictators, but there is always something celebratory to his style. Evoking the call of poets and singers, and the mysterious voices of wind, moon, trees, and dreams, Galeano remains, first and foremost, a wonder-struck raconteur."—The New Yorker
