Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Los vivos y los muertos. (The Living and the Dead) Paz Soldán, Edmundo. Spain/U.S.: Alfaguara: Santillana. 2009. 206p. ISBN 978-1-60396-624-5. pap. $19.99. MYSTERY Bolivian Paz Soldán was inspired to write this rather dark novel by combining true stories of crimes committed during the 1990s in the little town of Dryden in upstate New York, not far from Cornell University, where he lives and teaches. A pervert who likes to wear masks and spy on neighbors and strangers pursues a young cheerleader who lives in his neighborhood; she later turns up dead, along with her friend. Paz Soldán manages to convey the perverse and often violent permutations that can flourish in seemingly wholesome and innocent settings of the American Dream world. He certainly has all the little details of daily life—particularly from a high school perspective—down pat. To some readers, Paz Soldán’s attention to details like fast food, computer games, web sites, and social pressures may seem like criticism of all that makes U.S. life so appealing but finally horrific, and it’s unclear whether he is playing with the horror genre or doing something deeper—e.g., noting the great local capacity for violence in daily life or exploring personality disorders or even the self-indulgent perspectives of persons who live in countries where violence is seemingly less random. Recommended for libraries with strong thriller and mystery collections.—Catherine Rendón, Savannah, GA
