Three unforgettable characters live dramatic situations in the context of the yellow fever that ravaged Buenos Aires in 1871. Vittorio is the son of Italian immigrants in Argentina. Sayán is a Tehuelche Indian forced off her land by General Roca’s campaign. Pedro is the illegitimate son of a rich Buenos Aires family. These three characters breathe life to a passionate story that takes place during the Yellow Fever epidemic that decimated the city’s population in 1871. Anarchism, with its defense of workers’ rights, as well as the injustices committed against Indians and slaves as well as women, also add richness to this powerful and original novel.
