Publisher Description

From the acclaimed Argentine writer, one of Granta's Best Young Spanish-Language Novelists: a bold, ambitious new novel about how art became politics and politics became crime during the cataclysm of the Second World War. Pinerolo, Italy; April 1945. At a conference in support of Fascism, a writer disappears and is found dead at the bottom of a cliff. Thirty years later, a young man--a political activist or a terrorist, depending on your perspective--interviews survivors from the conference, to try to uncover the truth about what happened and its consequences. Who was the writer? What did he believe in? Why, shortly before his death, did he save a man who could have killed him? Where is his lost work? And what does any of this have to do with a teenager in contemporary Milan involved in a violent confrontation with the police? Don't Shed Your Tears for Anyone Who Lives on These Streets is a razor-sharp, completely original exploration of our most timeless concerns--guilt, betrayal, the legacy of earlier generations--and probes the question of what literature is: how it explains our times and irrevocably changes our lives.

Quotes

  • Pron’s story is part suspense novel, one that explores several puzzles. It is also part historical investigation . . . He reveals each detail deliberately, letting the mystery build . . . A skillfully constructed exploration of past events that many Italians would just as soon forget.

  • Without a doubt, one of the greatest novels of the last several years . . . Dazzling.

    - José-Carlos Mainer, Babelia / El País

    - J.M. Nadal Suau, El Cultural

    - Karina Sainz Borgo, Vozpópuli   
  • A decisive achievement . . . Reading this, one feels grateful that books of this quality are still being written.

    - José María Pozuelo Yvancos, ABC Cultural   
  • In the wake of authors such as Enrique Vila-Matas or César Aira, Argentine writer Patricio Pron manages to double down on all the literary bets that came before him . . . With his previous work, Pron has more than demonstrated the greatness of his literary project and his talents as a writer; with Don’t Shed Your Tears for Anyone Who Lives on These Streets, he is at the pinnacle of Spanish literature.
