While on tour as part of a post-revolutionary revived guerilla theater company, the lives of three men (two old and one young and naive) unfold and unravel. Alarcon makes clever use of his mysterious narrator and his language and phrasing can be so perfect it hurts!— Tanya at Books Inc. in Palo Alto
“Set in an unnamed South American country years after a protracted civil war has ended, At Night We Walk in Circles chronicles the life and dark fate of Nelson, a bright and promising young man who joins a small guerrilla theatre group. Nelson and the group's two founders, one of whom is a psychically battle-scarred casualty of the political conflict, bring their play, The Idiot President, to villages in the countryside and mountains, looking for escape, renewal, and perhaps redemption. The village that is the troupe's final destination holds deep secrets, and an innocent and kind act results in a shocking outcome. Alarcon is a genius, and this novel is a work of brilliance.”
