September 11th 1973 - General Augusto Pinochet's coup brings democracy in Chile to a bloody end. In its place is a horrific military dictatorship. 35 years later the old friends Cacho, Lolo and Lucho return from exile to meet again in Chile and wallow in memories. Hearty, funny and ironic, Sepúlveda tells the story of »losers« who never lost their sense of humour or their capacity for love. The author won the 2009 Premio Primavera award for the novel.
