Un grupo de amigos que se unen para mantener el contacto con la hija de uno de ellos que padece una enfermedad terminal ( )
  ACalio | Sep 8, 2016 |
Alejandro, "El Mono", ha muerto. Su hermano y sus amigos, un grupo de hierro desde la infancia, apenas se dan tiempo para el dolor. Les preocupa Guadalupe, la hija del Mono. Quieren darle todo el amor que sentían por su amigo y asegurarle un futuro. Pero en el banco no quedó un peso. El Mono invirtió todo el dinero que tenía en la compra de un jugador de fútbol, un muchacho que prometía pero se quedó en promesa. Ahora está a préstamo en un club zaparrastroso del Interior. Y los trescientos mil dólares que costó su pase, a punto de evaporarse. ¿Cómo vender a un delantero que no hace goles? ¿Cómo moverse en un mundo cuyas reglas se desconocen? ¿Cómo seguir siendo amigos si los fracasos van abriendo fisuras en las antiguas lealtades? Fernando, Mauricio y el Ruso, con las escasas herramientas que poseen, desplegarán una serie de estrategias nacidas del ingenio, la torpeza, el desconcierto o la inspiración, para conseguir su objetivo. Eduardo Sacheri demuestra una vez más su capacidad para construir personajes entrañables y contar historias que llegan de inmediato al lector. Papeles en el viento es un canto a la amistad, y una prueba de que el amor y el humor pueden más que la melancolía. Una invitación a pensar sobre el poder de la vida para abrirse paso a través del dolor y poner otra vez en marcha la rueda de los días.

Book description
From the best-selling author of The Secret in Their Eyes, an adventure about friendship, soccer, and good humor

When Alejandro “Mono” dies of cancer, his brother and two closest friends, a tight-knit group since childhood,  are left to figure out how to take care of his young daughter, Guadalupe. They want to give her all the love they felt for Mono and secure her future, but there isn’t a single peso left in the bank. Mono invested all of his money in a promising soccer player whose promise hasn’t panned out, and the three hundred thousand dollars Mono spent on his transfer is soon to be lost for good.

How do you sell a forward who can’t score a goal? How do you negotiate in a world whose rules you don’t know? How do you maintain relationships when repeated failures create fissures in lifelong loyalties? Fernando, Mauricio, and “Ruso” pool the few resources in their arsenal to come up with strategies—from harebrained to inspired—in their desperate attempt to recoup Mono’s investment for Guadalupe.

Following the lives of four distinct characters, who, despite their great differences, still manage to find  solace and pride in one another, Papers in the Wind is a tribute to friendship and proof that love and humor can triumph over sadness.
