In Montreal, Alfredo struggles with his memories of being ordered to commit an atrocity by the Bolivian army. Despising his nation as an oppressive sham, he falls for a woman who has no nation—a Kurdish freedom-fighter trying to blast an independent Kurdistan into existence. As the net of intrigue closes in on his lover, Alfredo must finally face his past. Refusing to be bound by style, genre, or language, Alejandro Saravia captures the tumultuous existence of the exile.
PRAISE FOR RED, YELLOW, GREEN
“Heartbreaking and uplifting, full of humour and irony, and innovative all throughout, [Red, Yellow, Green] stretches the limits of genre and language as it speaks of love, life and suffering as remembered, and/or imagined by the protagonist.” —Maria José Giménez
