The story of Cristobal Artola, nicknamed El Triste, scion of the mean streets and bars of Buenos Aires' bleak urban sprawl. His politics: a heady-mix of Evita, his own dead mother, and anti-communism; his law: the code of the pool hall. A chance meeting with Chaves, a disillusioned priest, sets Triste on a career of violence as a member of Argentina's death squads. The changing relationship between the two men is subtly woven into the history of the period. Vazquez Rial's cool, urban style strikes out rich new territory in Latin American writing.
