Rendición, by Ray Loriga

Join Paula in the Spanish bookclub! About the novel:
“[...] a Kafkaesque and Orwellian story about authority and collective manipulation, a parable of our societies exposed to the gaze and judgment of all”
In Rendición, an anonymous narrator-protagonist tells how he, his wife, and a child they have taken in are forcibly removed from their rural estate and relocated to the “transparent city.” War has been raging for a decade, and the couple’s two children have gone off to fight for their country. The brief trip to the city through a war-torn region is horrifying, but once they arrive, they encounter a society that, apparently, is at peace and meets all human needs. However, closer scrutiny reveals that this extraordinary, luminous place where nighttime and odors do not exist is no utopia.
