In Resistencia, a city in the northeast of Argentina, trials of those responsible for the Massacre of Margarita Belén are being held. It is 2010 and the parents of the narrator of this story were murdered during the military dictatorship. He is asked to cover the trials, a task that makes him an observer not just of the chilling, callous testimony presented but also his own short life story. With harrowing events as a back-drop and looming presence, a young man seeks to find meaning in his life through literature and especially the noble, age-old pastime of running.
“Tanto correr takes the memory of the repression in its firm, calm stride, with admirable equilibrium that sets it apart from the rest.” GABI MARTÍNEZ
“An enjoyable literary account of how political horror will always haunt us: a book as pleasurable as it is brave.” GONZALO TORNÉ
