When I Die, Play Cumbia for Me: The Lives of Young Criminals

Cristian Alarcón

NON FICTION. PRH, 2012. 196 PAGES.

Based around the legend of Frente Vital, this book explores a chapter of recent Argentine history that is coloured by violence and betrayal but also solidarity and principles. Writing in pacy, precise prose in the best reportage tradition, Cristian Alarcón heads into the unsettling world of the slums in the company of young criminals to try to understand the schizophrenia of a society that both condemns and beatifies his protagonists.
