(Eterna Cadencia, 2013. 288 p.) Federico Souza returns to Chivilcoy for a few days for the first time in twenty years. His father called him to let him kno that Pajarito Lernú has passed away, and shortly before dying, has given him a cow as a gift for Federico.
Hernán Ronsino is thus back to the world of La descomposición and Glaxo, to that town immersed in the pampas, where things are half said and half known. The reason of the trip, Pajarito’s death, is a faint thread from which Federico’s memories unravel. Following the tracks of their memories, the characters make up the story of the town up, attempting to determine where they belong in it, and what part the town itself played in history. Lumbre is a novel “written from memory” by one of today’s the most talented argentinian authors.
