A Luminous Republic: Andrés Barba


San Crist?bal is an unremarkable city – small, prosperous and contained by rainforest and river. But then the children arrived. No one knew where they came from: 32 kids, seemingly born of the jungle, speaking an unknown language. At first they scavenged, stealing food and money and absconding to the trees. But their transgressions escalated to violence, and then the city’s own children began defecting to join them. Facing complete collapse, municipal forces embark on a hunt to find the kids before the city falls into irreparable chaos. Narrated by the social worker who led the hunt, ‘A Luminous Republic’ is a suspenseful, anguished novel by Andr?s Barba.
