Soñé que la nieve ardía / I Dreamt the Snow Was Burning
Novel , 1975

In this novel, Skármeta gives us all the warmth and doomed enthusiasm of the last days of Allende, before the fall of democratic Chile brought tanks into the streets, enthroned the generals and turned the national football stadium into a torture centre.
“This ballad of muchachos of Allende’s Chile is, with its vigor and fantasy, undoubtedly one of the best pieces of committed literature to emerge from Latin America.” Le Monde
