La Virgen de los sicarios es el mas bello y delirante canto de amor y de perdici#65533;n que nos ha dado desde hace mucho la literature

Le Figaro litteraire

En el resquebrajamiento de una sociedad que ha cortado con sus valores y su pasado, en que los asesinos contratados o sicarios son ni#65533;os, y en que la impunidad es la norma y la violencia el aire que se respira, por las atestadas calles de Medellin, entre una multitud maldiciente de desempleados y mendigos, de ladrones y atracadores, vendedores ambulantes y fumadores de basuco, van el narrador loco o lucido y su amante, un adolescente asesino, tratando de ponerle remedio por las malas a lo que no lo tiene.

Cuando ya no queda sino rezar y rociar con agua bendita las balas, la iglesita perdida de Maria Auxiliadora en el pueblo de Sabaneta se vuelve un santuario de peregrinacion de los sicarios y a la vez una referencia para las paginas alucinadas de esta novela.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

Our Lady of the Assassins is the most beautiful, delirious tribute to love and loss that literature has given us in a long while."

-Le Figaro litt#65533;raire

In the weakening of a society that has broken with its values and its past, in which hired assassins and hitmen are children, and in which impunity is the norm and violence the air that is breathed, through the crowded streets of Medell#65533;n, in a teeming crowd of the unemployed and panhandlers, of thieves and bandits, street vendors and cokeheads, walk the crazy (or lucid) narrator and his lover, a killer teenager, trying to make amends for one wrong with another. When nothing is left but to pray and sprinkle the bullets with holy water, the tiny church of Mar#65533;a Auxiliadora in the town of Sabaneta becomes a sanctuary for hitmen pilgrims and at the same time a focal point for this amazing novel.
