“They are young, full of ambition and dreams; they are still unable to imagine that there might be a story in the world in which they are not the main characters.”
Juan Gómez Bárcena, The Sky Over Lima

“the Lord always answers the prayers of those who wish for nothing to change.”
Juan Gómez Bárcena, The Sky Over Lima

“Who gives a damn about fripperies and bourgeois sentiment when the final battle of the class war is being waged all around them?

Juan Gómez Bárcena, The Sky Over Lima
