    Είμαι η σκιά του εαυτού μας, και θα υπάρχουμε όσο θα υπάρχει φως.

    Dice Eduardo Galeano, uno dei grandissimi della letteratura Latino Americana:"L'utopia sta all'orizzonte. Mi avvicino di due passi, lei si allontana di due passi. Faccio dieci passi e l'orizzonte si allontana di dieci passi. Per quanto cammini, non la raggiungerò mai. A cosa serve l'utopia? A questo: serve a camminare."A cosa serve questo libro di Sepulveda - così come quasi tutti i suoi libri?.A non dimenticare di sognare, perché non si può costruire un futuro diverso, se prima non lo si so [...]

    Anche se si può essere tentati a farlo, sarebbe ingiusto e ingeneroso parafrasare il titolo del romanzo affermando che questo autore è l'ombra di quello che era il narratore Luis Sepulveda, colui che all'inizio degli anni 90 ci regalò alcuni romanzi brevi di straordinario spessore poetico e allo stesso tempo di solida coscienza civile.Forse siamo stati noi lettori italiani, un po' come accadde qualche anno prima in campo musicale col gruppo degli Inti Illimani, ad attribuirgli un eccessivo ta [...]

    Boha Jeho!!! Stín někdejšího času jsem zakoupil na základě dvou velmi silných indícií - za prvé se mi knížka vešla do náprsní kapsy, což je vždy velké plus, protože ruce raději využívám na držení cigaret, Jégra a penisu (mého). Za druhé, autor se jmenuje Sepulveda, takže jsem si říkal, že by to mohlo být skvělý, když prvních pět písmen z jeho jména začíná stejně jako Sepultura. Navíc měla být knížka o čtyřech důchodcích co jdou vyloupit banku [...]

    Do autor chileno Luis Sepúlveda ainda só tinha tido oportunidade de ler O velho que lia romances de amor e na altura gostei bastante. A partir de hoje, podem adquirir este A sombra do que fomos, o último livro do escritor, que já foi galardoado com este ano com o Prémio Primavera de Romance.Este livro fala de um grupo de chilenos desencantados com o rumo do seu país e que, após as convulsões políticas e sociais dos anos 70, se volta a encontrar 35 anos com o objectivo de devolver ao Chi [...]

    This book s very interesting from an historical point of view Even though it does not pretend to be an historical romance, much of what it describes is certainly inspired in it's Author's experience of dictatorship in CHile, years of exile, and of his profound knowledge of the mentality and traumas of people who have been persecuted. The book is at the same time a thriler and a story which is certainly a good read.Maria Carmo,Lisbon 31rst December 2012.

    Un grupo de jóvenes de corazón pero veteranos de la vida se reúnen para realizar un robo de justicia por los caidos en la dictadura chilena Un accidente fortuito que puede dar todo al traste y un ¿nos la jugamos? que sigue impulsando su vida. Libro corto y de fácil lectura (con mucha jerga chilena e información del movimiento de lucha "obrera").

    Silvia [Zilvia]
    Ironico e amaro nello stesso tempo. Un libro che scorre via veloce e ti accompagna per il tempo di una serata o due, legandoti a doppia mandata a personaggi delineati con pochi tratti ma che ti sembra di conoscere da sempre. Un libro fatto da un intreccio di sorrisi e sospiri, di entusiasmi e disillusioni, di giovinezza e vecchiaia. Bravo Luis.

    This short fiction book is about an aged and forgotten Chilean anarchist who garthers 3 aged and forgotten revolutionaires to commit one last stunt for old time's sake, but it doesn't go as expected for one of them and still reaches its final goal. This simple written and told story is filled with historical references about real events, real organizations, and real people who were involved in fighting the dictatorship and/or victims of past dictatorship in Chili during the early 70's. Therefore [...]

    Original post here: ginachoe/2011/03/book-noteThe Shadow of What We Were is set in Santiago, Chile, where four old comrades arrange to meet for the first time in thirty years for one last rebellious act. They are former revolutionaries who have gone into hiding or have been in exile since Pinochet’s 1973 coup. Told with dark humor, this slim novel deals with the devastating reality of dictatorship.Most interesting are Luis Sepúlveda’s remarks on memory—whether personal, political or natio [...]

    From weeksnotice/2011/Luis Sepúlveda's The Shadow of What We Were (translated 2010) is a quick and funny (including a quick rant about café con piernas, which I had never thought of in political terms) novel about former militants in Chile trying to figure out their lives long after the Allende and Pinochet governments--which defined their very existence--are long gone. Sepúlveda himself was imprisoned for two years and then fled to Europe, where he still lives. He knows of what he speaks.The [...]

    Il romanzo di Luis Sepúlveda ha inizio con un’apertura a ciò che fu e a ciò che rimane. Prima di concedere al lettore l’ironia, l’umanità, le debolezze e le sconfitte, di ognuno dei personaggi che ritorna dal passato, il focus narrativo attraversa i decenni per raccontare ciò che accadde il 16 luglio 1925 in un sobborgo di Santiago del Cile. Poche righe nate dal ricordo dello “specialista”, il personaggio che, con la sua presenza-assenza, intreccia le azioni e i ricordi degli altr [...]

    "I ragazzi di Chaihuìn volevano imparare a combattere per essere liberi e lo stesso fa quella gente che si gioca il tutto per tutto per far vincere Allende. Vogliono essere liberi. Io sono diverso, piedipiatti. Io combatto per non dimenticare che sono già un uomo libero"Il libro di Sepùlveda racconta la storia di alcuni cileni che in gioventù avevano fortemente sostenuto le idee e le lotte di Salvador Allende e che, a causa del golpe militare, hanno poi pagato con il carcere, la tortura e l' [...]

    In this short novel, which won the Premio Primavera de Novela in 2009, three aging Chilean anarchists are summoned by their former leader, Pedro Nolasco, to conduct one last revolutionary act, 30 years after a spectacular bank robbery after the fall of Salvador Allende's Marxist government to a coup d'état led by General Augusto Pinochet. Before the meeting can take place, Nolasco is felled in a bizarre accident by the wife of another former revolutionary, Coco Aravena, a bumbling dreamer who s [...]

    Tre anziani signori si ritrovano in un garage dopo 40 anni per un misterioso appuntamento in una Santiago flagellata dalla pioggia. Rievocando le loro vicende ricostruiscono i giorni terribili del colpo di stato contro Allende, quando un'intera generazione andò incontro alla spietata macchina repressiva di Pinochet con il sorriso e l'ingenuità della speranza. Dalle loro parole emerge la straordinaria figura di un uomo misterioso, soprannominato l'Ombra, un novello Robin Hood che ha combattuto [...]

    "Sono l'ombra di quel che eravamo, ma finchè c'è luce esisteremo"Un giallo mancato, attraverso il quale Sepulveda rievoca gli eventi di quel drammatico 11 settembre 1973 in cui perse la vita il Presidente Allende. Anni di terrore, repressione, violenza, raccontati da tre anziani signori che si ritrovano a Santiago dopo l'esilio per uno strano appuntamentoNo, non erano più la giovane guardia.

    Mais uma vez nos deparamos com um retrato da história Chilena e, mais uma vez, somos confrontados com os efeitos da passagem do tempo para aqueles que a esperança desiludiu e a luta fez definhar.Com um sabor fortemente político e uma reflexão humana profunda ‘A sombra do que fomos’ leva-nos, com uma gargalhada ou duas e vários sorrisos, através da experiência de vida das personagens que sobreviveram (ou sucumbiram) a um período político conturbado. As suas histórias são feitas pel [...]

    This was a curious story which combined black humour with a view of the impact of the military overthrow of Allende's socialist government in Chile in the early 1970's upon three aging revolutionaries who meet some thirty years later to carry out a belated act of defiance and the recovery of the funds stolen from a previous bank robbery.The comic element arises as a bizarre accident leads to the death of the leader of the group and the re-emergence of Coco another former comrade of the others wh [...]

    Na verdade este novo livro do Luis Sepúlveda soube-me a pouco (já dizia o Sérgio Godinho). É daqueles que se conseguem ler enquanto estamos numa sala de espera de um qualquer consultório médico deste país. No meu caso não tanto, pois gosto de silêncio para ler :)O livro é muito divertido, cheio de frases que nos fazem rir e sorrir, embora não seja um livro sobre alegrias, mas sim sobre as voltas que a vida dá, onde nem sempre aquilo que desejamos é aquilo que temos. Fala do futuro, [...]

    September 11 has a very different meaning for Chileans than it does here in the US. On that day in 1973 the Allende government was overthrown by a military coup led by Augusto Pinochet, and Allende committed suicide after a battle at the presidential palace. Over the next days and months thousands of left-wing activists and intellectuals were rounded up, tortured, 'disappeared', and killed. The Pinochet dictatorship remained in power for the next 17 years. The political opposition fled the count [...]

    The Shadow of What We Were is an awesome book, especially if you are a fan of Latin-American fiction or if you happen are interested in reading about the 1973 Chilean Coup, which sadly, the US just happens to have backed, resulting in the deaths or disappearances of countless numbers of people. If not, then you probably might want to skip this one, although I must say that the writing is especially good.I have a rather lengthy reviewhere ; feel free to pop over and give it a look!

    Non mi ha convinta. La storia forse, dico forse, sarebbe potuta essere interessante. Lo stile di scrittura mi è piaciuto e anche il concatenamento dei personaggi e delle coincidenze che li legavano era ben fatto. Però ci sono troppi flashback, troppi ricordi di avvenimenti passati che parlano di politica cilena e che io sinceramente non conosco e non mi interessa conoscere. Il tutto rimane così troppo appesantito e ostico da capire, incluso il finale. Un libro che ho finito oggi e ma che doma [...]

    ★Loredana★
    Non posso dire che sia un brutto libro, c'è dentro nostalgia, ci sono i corsi e ricorsi della vita e della storia, il bisogna che tutto cambi perchè tutto resti come prima, ma mi aspettavo di più, forse pretendevo di più, chissà, e da un libro non bisogna mai pretendere, me ne rendo conto questo Sepùlveda non mi è piaciuto, il confronto con "Il vecchio che leggeva romanzi d'amore" non regge, non regge proprio.

    Un autre livre qui se rapproche de ce que je viens de lire auparavant mais cette fois-ci sur la politique gauchiste au Chili. Le style est bien mais j'ai été complètement perdue dans les personages. Beuacoup de mal à savoir qui parlait. Il faudrait que je le relise mais n'ai guère l'envie de faire cela.

    Mason Stevens
    This book was a good overview of the political climate of Chile in the period following Allende's Presidency. The story follows a good narrative, although at some points I found the book hard to follow. Overall a very quick and exciting read for anyone interested in Latin America in the 60s -present.

    Novela ganadora del Premio Primavera 2009 con un jurado compuesto por Ana María Matute, Ángel Basanta, Antonio Soler, Ramón Pernás y Ana Rosa Semprún. En ella, Sepúlveda nos invita a reír y reflexionar sobre la historia de los perdedores (aquella que, como el autor dijo en una entrevista, deben narrar los demócratas) ante la represión de la dictadura chilena.
