"Figueras – a bestseller across the Spanish-speaking world – writes with power and insight about the ways in which a child uses imagination to make sense of a terrifying and baffling reality."In the forecourt of a petrol station outside of Buenos Aires, a father says goodbye to his son: ‘Kamchatka,’ he whispers softly into his ear. And then they part, forever.
A ten-year-old boy lives in world of Superman comics and games of Risk – a world in which men have superpowers and boys can conquer the globe on a board game. But in the outside world, a military junta have taken power; and amid a political climate of fear and intimidation, people are beginning to disappear without trace...
Kamchatka is a heartbreaking novel; set in Argentina during the bloody coup d’etat of 1976, it tells the enchanting story of a young boy trying to make sense of a world during a time of extraordinary upheaval.
