it was amazing
bookshelves: spanish-language-fiction, latin-american-fiction

Rulfo's narrative technique is incredibly delicate. He moves between numerous lives (and afterlives) in a small village. Everyone in this book seems haunted, both literally and implicitly by the actions, angers and jealousys and lusts of those around them. The constant time shifts are brilliantly executed, and Rulfo is able to bring out these incredibly small moments of tenderness and pathos in a small amount of space. A glancing, evocative work. Almost like listening to an old spanish guitar recording.
