- Pedro Páramo by Juan Rulfo (Mexico). The novel tells how the protagonist, Juan Preciado, goes in search of his father, Pedro Páramo, to the Mexican town of Comala, an empty, mysterious, lifeless place. There, the young man will discover that all the townspeople are called Páramo, that many of them are his own brothers, and that Pedro Páramo is dead. It is also another classic example of magical realism.
- La tregua by Mario Benedetti (Uruguay). The gray and routine daily life, marked by the frustration and lack of perspectives of the urban middle class, permeates the pages of this novel. Taking the form of a personal diary, recounts a brief period in the life of a widowed employee. He’s close to retirement and his existence divides between the office, the house, the café and a precarious family life dominated by a difficult relationship with adult children. An unexpected love affair, which seems to offer the protagonist a horizon of liberation and personal happiness, is tragically interrupted. And it will be just one incident – a truce – in his daily fight against boredom, loneliness and the relentless passage of time.
