This was a beautiful, haunting story. I wish I could read French so I could read Alcoba's follow-up. I also wish I knew more about Argentinian history, because there were parts that were not perfectly familiar to me, but the larger political picture is really not what matters most here, I think: it's the horror of growing up a child in the midst of what amounts to civil war, and Alcoba's prose captured that perfectly (however much we wish no one had to).

Laura was 7 years-old when her parents' political sympathies began to draw the attention of the dictator's regime. Before long, her father was imprisoned and Laura and her mother were forced to leave their apartment in the capital of Buenos Aires to go into hiding in a small, run-down house on the outskirts. This is the 'rabbit house' where the resistance movement is building a secret printing press, and setting up a rabbit farm to conceal their activities. Laura now finds herself living a clandestine existence - crouching beneath a blanket into the car on her way to school, forbidden from talking to friends or neighbours, and only half understanding the conversations she overhears between the adults in the house.Biographies & Autobiographies.History.Political activism.South America.… (more)
