In search of work, Triclinio takes up the violin and migrates to Buenos Aires. There he finds political convulsions, coups, tanks and tear-gas: sounds that threaten to drown any music he might make. A chance encounter with a tottering president raises Triclinio?s hopes that once more music might be heard. But the thunderous noise of the rebels? tanks grows to a crescendo and the presidential guard is overcome. Silence descends on the country - a silence that paradoxically affects the torturers more than the tortured.

Review:

?Daniel Moyano has taken a history of violent repression and created a dazzling nonsymphony out of it. A book of dissonant music - blunt and difficult, lush and whimsical, and as memorable as it is unsettling? VLS ?Daniel Moyano is a superb writer...the absence of an English translation of his writing is one of those literary lapses one reads about as happening to other places and other ages? Andrew Graham-Yooll ?An eloquent defence of artistic integrity and freedom...the book is a real triumph? John King

About the Author:

Daniel Moyano was born in Buenos Aires in 1930 and died in 1992 in Madrid, in exile. When in Argentina, he taught music at the conservatory of La Rioja. He is the Author of four novels, and five collections of short stories.
