    1. Tales from the Town of Widows and Chronicles from the Land of Men is a feast for anyone who relishes beautiful, intelligent writing infused with humor and humanity Set against the backdrop of the Colombian civil war, it tells the story of a group of women living in a remote mountain village who are forced to fend for themselves after a band of Communist guerrillas descends on the village and forcibly recruits all the men, killing those who resist and leading the others away to fight for their ca [...]

    2.

    7. L id e de ce livre est excellente et, de plus, l action se d roule dans une soci t contemporaine Tout d bute Mariquita, en Cplombie, le 15 novembre 1992 Le jour o les hommes disparurent Il faut tre un peu patient parce que bien que je prenais plaisir la lecture, les choses n avancent pas tr s vite Les chapitres sont parfois des nouvelles en soi qui d crivent certaines des femmes du village ou certains moments de la vie C est imag e, empreint d humour, de folie, mais aussi d une grande tristesse, [...]
