Voices of Time
A Life in StoriesBook - 2006
One of South America's leading authors shares a kaleidoscopic collection of reflections, memories, observations, and folklore that chronicles the author's own life story, from his family's immigration to Uruguay in the early twentieth century to his own literary endeavors and encounters with the world around him. 35,000 first printing.
In this kaleidoscope of reflections, renowned South American author Eduardo Galeano ranges widely, from childhood to love, music, plants, fear, indignity, and indignation. In the signal style of his bestselling Memory of Fire trilogy--brief fragments that build steadily into an organic whole--Galeano offers a rich, wry history that is both calmly philosophical and fiercely political.
