Summary

En Los años invisibles, un grupo de adolescentes de buena familia ve cómo un futuro brillante se desmorona a sus pies. Una novela generacional sobre las incógnitas e incertezas del paso a la adultez.

«La adolescencia es la guerra y el amor hacia todo y contra todo.» Rodrigo Hasbún

Veintiún años después y en otro hemisferio, dos amigos de la adolescencia se reúnen para revisar su pasado común, el pasado que uno de ellos está transformando en una novela. Así entablan una conversación implacable sobre las mentiras y la verdad de aquella época.

Andrea y Julián, con los nombres falsos usados en esa ficción, beben y hablan mientras cambian de bares en Houston. A medida que pasan las horas el encuentro saca a la luz aquel marzo trágico que ninguno pudo olvidar, y que marcó para siempre a su grupo de amigos de clase acomodada en Cochabamba, la ciudad de la que querían irse y a la que no piensan volver.

La nueva novela de Rodrigo Hasbún nos sumerge en el tiempo silenciado de la adolescencia. Los años invisibles es una indagación dolorosa y bella sobre el pasado y cómo lo recordamos, sobre el lugar inexpugnable que tiene en el ahora.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

"In The Invisible Years, a group of teenagers from a good family watch a brilliant future crumble at their feet. A generational novel about the unknowns and uncertainties of coming of age.

‘Adolescence is war and love towards everything and against everything.’ Rodrigo Hasbún
Twenty-one years later and in another hemisphere, two friends from their adolescence meet to reminisce about their common past, the past that one of them is transforming into a novel. Thus, they engage in a relentless conversation about the lies and truth of that time.

Andrea and Julián, with false names used in that work of fiction, drink and talk while bar-hopping in Houston. As the hours pass, the meeting brings to light that tragic March that no one could forget, and that forever marked their group of upper-class friends in Cochabamba, the city from which they wanted to escape and to which they do not intend to return.

Rodrigo Hasbún's new novel plunges us into the silenced time of adolescence. The Invisible Years is a painful and beautiful inquiry into the past, how we remember it, and about the impregnable place it has in the now. "
