Summary
  • In this dark corner of the world, the impossible occurs in 1927. In Espinoza, Nuevo León, Niño Fidencio performing miracles among hundreds of patients spreads, in his unique way, the word of God. The desert camp is full of desolation and pain but also hope. Fidencio is a victim of a holy war and this isolated corner of the world contains not only the suffering, but also a skeptical journalist, an old aide to the first socialist mayor of Acapulco, the wise man who survived the coup de grace, a magician who seeks to avenge the murder of his beloved snake woman, a painter of miracles, a spy trained to detect the bad in human faces, a dwarf Knight of Columbus, a sick freak of melancholy, a beautiful dynamite Todos on the road to hell or already living in it, assists in an impossible spectacle: the visit of the holy demon. The novel is full of the dust that obscures a piece of Mexican history of Mexico that has never been told before
  • En este oscuro rincon del mundo ocurre lo imposible en 1927. En Espinazo, Nuevo León, Niño Fidencio hace milagros entre cientos de enfermos: tira manzanas que curan, pone emplastos de gobernadora y miel, con un trozo de vidrio abre cabezas y piernas infectadas, y difunde a su muy singular manera la palabra de Dios. En medio de aquel campamento en el desierto se respiran la desolacion y el dolor pero tambien la esperanza. El pais se desangra victima de una guerra santa y este rincon aislado del mundo alberga no solo al santon del norte y sus dolientes: tambien conviven en el un periodista esceptico, antiguo escudero del primer alcalde socialista de Acapulco, ese hombre que sabia sobrevivir a los tiros de gracia; un mago que busca vengar el asesinato de su amada mujer-serpiente, un pintor de milagros, un espia educado para escrutar el mal en los rostros humanos, un enano Caballero de Colon, un monstruo enfermo de melancolia, una hermosa dinamitera Todos, camino al infierno o ya instalados en el, asisten a un espectaculo imposible: la visita del demonio al santo, mientras una conjura se teje en las sombras para impedirlo. Una novela trepidante, llena del polvo que oscurece el rastro de ese trozo de la historia de Mexico que aun no ha sido contada
