Brickmakers: Selva Almada


P?jaro Tamai and Marciano Miranda, two young men, are dying in a deserted amusement park. The story begins almost at its end, just a little after the two main characters have faced off in a knife fight – the culmination of a rivalry that has pitted them against one another since childhood. The present in ‘Brickmakers’ is a state of impending death, at moments marked by oneiric visions: Marciano is visited by the ghost of his father, who was murdered when he was a teenager, a father he had sworn to avenge, in a promise he could not keep. P?jaro is also visited, in a recurring nightmare, by his abusive father who disappeared years earlier.
