9788439705406: Rosario Tijeras

"Since they shot her at point-blank range while she was being kissed, she confused the pain of love with that of death." Rosario Tijeras is the violent, violated character at the center of Jorge Franco's study of contrasts, set in self-destructing 1980s Medellín. Her very name-evoking the rosary, and scissors-bespeaks her conflict as a woman who becomes a contract killer to insulate herself from the random violence of the streets. Then she is shot, gravely wounded, and the circle of contradiction is closed.
From the corridors of the hospital where Rosario is fighting for her life, Antonio, the narrator, waits to learn if she will recover. Through him, we reconstruct the friendship between the two, her love story with Emilio, and her life as a hitwoman.
Rosario Tijeras has been recognized as an admirable continuation of a literary subject that was first treated by Gabriel García Márquez and then by Fernando Vallejo. A work in the Latin American social realist tradition, the story of Rosario Tijeras is told in fast and vibrant prose, and poetic flourish.

From the Publisher :

"Como a Rosario le pegaron un tiro a quemarropa mientras le daban un beso, confundió el dolor del amor con el de la muerte". Rosario Tijeras es el violento y violado personaje al centro de este estudio de contrastes ambientado en la Medellín autodestructiva de los años '80. Su mismo nombre -simbólico y contradictorio a la vez- sugiere el conflicto que vive como mujer que se 'convierte' al sicariato para aislarse de la violencia aterradora de las calles. Desde los pasillos del hospital donde Rosario está luchando por su vida, Antonio, el narrador, espera saber si sobrevivirá. A través de él reconstruimos la amistad entre los dos, su historia de amor con Emilio y su vida como sicaria.

Rosario Tijeras es una obra que pertenece al estudio socio-realista Latinoamericano. Es una obra cuya prosa se revela en toda su vitalidad y vena poética.
