Departing at Dawn: A Novel of Argentina's Dirty War

'“[A] quiet, powerful novel . . . With graceful writing . . . Lisé sketches Berta’s quest for autonomy and self against the vivid, violent backdrop of a country seeking the same.” —Publishers Weekly   “It never ceases to astound me how many people around the world choose to deny a dark period in the history of their respective nations. Anyone anywhere today in need of the reminder that political change begins with speaking out should read this testimony.” —Ana Castillo, author of Massacre of the Dreamers   “Immense human depth and a high quality of writing.” —David William Foster, author of Violence in Argentine Literature   “From the heart of Argentina comes a novel of the heart, where the outbreak of our worst military dictatorship is told with utmost reserve. Departing at Dawn is a beautifully simple, poetic story of solidarity and love, with memorable characters painted in the tender strokes of a watercolor.” —Luisa Valenzuela, author of Black Novel (with Argentines)'
