In Carlos Rojass imaginative novel, the Spanish poet Federico GarcA-a Lorca, murdered by Francoist rebels in August 1936, finds himself in an inferno that somehow resembles Breughels Tower of Babel. He sits alone in a small theater in this private hell, viewing scenes from his own life performed over and over and over. Unexpectedly, two doppelgAngers appear, one a middle-aged Lorca, the other an irascible octogenarian self, and the poet faces a nightmarish confusion of alternative identities and destinies.Carlos Rojas uses a fantastic premiseaGarcA-a Lorca in hellato reexamine the poets life and speculate on alternatives to his tragic end. Rojas creates with a surrealists eye and a moral philosophers mind. He conjures a profoundly original world, and in so doing earns a place among such international peers as Gabriel GarcA-a MA!rquez, Philip Roth, J. M. Coetzee, and JosA(c) Saramago.
