Summary
  • Hace un año que no llueve en Icamole y en el pozo de Remigio, en vez de agua, hoy aparece una hermosa niña muerta. Una criatura adorable que así, inerte, es capaz de despertar las más desquiciadas pasiones; aunque también puede significar la perdición, pues pronto vendrá la policía en busca de un culpable. Remigio acude a su padre, el bibliotecario del pueblo, para que le ayude a ocultar el crimen que no cometió. Juntos encontrarán en las grandes novelas --en esas sublimes borracheras de palabras-- el modo de cambiar la historia y la vida misma al borrar la tenue frontera que separa la realidad y la ficción
  • In tiny Icamole, almost deserted village in Mexico's desert north, the librarian, Lucio, is also the village's only reader. Though it has not rained for a year in Icamole, when Lucio's son Remigio draws the body of a thirteen-year-old girl from his well, floodgates open on dark possibility. Strangely enamored of the dead girl's beauty and fearing implication, Remigio turns desperately to his father. Persuading his son to bury the body, Lucio baptizes the girl Babette, after the heroine of a favorite novel. Is Lucio the keeper of too many stories? As police begin to investigate, has he lost his footing? Or do revelation and resolution lie with other characters and plots from his library?
