Overview
Un coro de voces narra la épica pelea en el palacio de las grandes veladas de boxeo, el mítico Madison Square Garden de Nueva York. Dos son los combates que se libran: uno entre Bruno Broa y el demoledor Ñato Pólvora Herrera; el otro, el más duro de todos, el que librará Orestes Lagoa contra una infancia fallida, las pérdidas y el miedo a los lazos afectivos. Aquel diluvio de otoño se convierte en una alegoría del combate que todos libramos en la vida, la importancia del amor, la devastación que producen las pérdidas afectivas y la confusión que nos atrapa cuando todo nuestro horizonte ideológico se derrumba. Una novela épica, de amor, pérdidas, encuentros y huidas, donde no falta el humor y el sarcasmo. Retrato agudo del neorrealismo hispánico de los sesenta con la ternura de sus protagonistas atrapados en la violencia del box y de la vida.
Author Bio
Carlos Andrade Caamaño is a fighter by nature. He was born on May 23rd, 1957 in a small village called Artes (Municipality of Carballo), A Coruña. His childhood was marked by his mother's death, after a long illness. The harsh conditions of those times forced him to work since he was a child, which never stopped him from devouring every book that fell into his hands. He became an industrial radiologist but, in 1973, he had an accident while working with nuclear energy, which made it impossible for him to continue practicing his profession, and he turned to advertising communication. No doubt books helped him overcome this critical period. Nowadays, he is the president of an important advertising agency, Andrade & Asociados. That Fall Deluge is his first published novel.
