carlos liscano

my mom sent me an email today with a link to an article in the french newspaper liberation about a man, carlos liscano, from montevideo who wrote a book about his life as a political prisoner in montevideo. it's called Truck of Fools: A Testimonio of Torture and Recovery. the article is here but it's in french. carlos liscano is from la teja, the neighbourhood that i grew up in which is also the neighbourhood where the current president, Tabare Vazquez, is from. the library doesn't have this book. did you know that you can suggest a purchase at the library through their site? and once they purchase it, they place it on hold for you. so far, they've purchased everything i've requested and hopefully they'll do the same for this book.
