Days and Nights of Love and War

Eduardo Galeano

NON FICTION, 1979. NEW EDITION SIGLO XXI, 2017. 361 PAGES.

In 1976, at the age of 36, Galeano begins a long exile that takes him first to Buenos Aires and later to Catalonia. Stricken by the disappearance, murder or exile of his companions, there he writes Days and Nights of Love and War as an act of reparation, an overwhelming chronicle of the time between May 1975 and July 1977, where he captures a rigorous photograph of the political horror of those days.

This book, winner of the 1978 Casa de las Americas Prize, is the most autobiographical retrospective of the Southern Cone dictatorships and the nostalgia of exile. But at the same time Galeano adds, to the ominous testimony of death, an intimate memory of the ecstasy of love.
