2006 winner of the "Premio Tusquets Editories de Novela"

Evelio Rosero, the Columbian author of several novels as well as stories for children and teens and previous winner of the Columbian National Literature Award, won the Premio Tusquets Editories de Novela in 2006 for his book Los Ejercitos, a novel about a small Columbian town that is devastated by fighting that erupts between various armed factions in Columbia. Told through the narrator Ismael, a retired teacher who is losing his memory, Criticas Magazine says the book has "undeniable elegance and a masterly command of the Spanish language, and offers a profound exploration of human life in the face of irrational violence."
Reserve this book through the library catalog or look for it on the shelf on the third floor of the downtown library in the foreign language collection.
