Synopsis
Leonardo Bazan unwittingly witnesses the robbery of a neighboring house. But this wasn't your typical robbery. It was carried out by a well-organized group using sophisticated logistics; and even included a member of the police force. Yet, more disturbing to Bazan are the memories of a similar crime, witnessed with his parents, that took place in that same house in 1976 during the first years of Argentina's military dictatorship. Having suppressed the traumatic event from his childhood, Bazan sets out to write it down in an attempt to free himself of a past he's been unable to forget or understand. How exactly did he and his parents react and how should he judge those reactions today? How can a decades-old criminal still be in use? And how is it possible that even now people still react with the same level of fear? Written like a detective's note pad, where with each piece of evidence thoughts and conclusions are called into question and organized crime is revealed, Una misma noche is a suspense novel that explores the role citizens play when facing the most brutal and secretive forms of power, and also reflects on the unbearable conscience of our own cowardice. Intimate, political, confessional, powerful, and mysterious, this is a story destined to endure.

Spanish Description: Una misma noche, de Leopoldo Brizuela, es la novela ganadora del Premio Alfaguara 2012, en la cual el escritor ofrece una reflexion sobre el mal y la injusticia en la dictadura argentina y donde ''los metodos de atropellamiento de los civiles que se usaron aun se siguen presentando en el ano 2010''. El protagonista regresa a la casa de sus padres para cuidar de su madre viuda y un dia ve como las fuerzas del orden asaltan la casa de sus vecinos. Ese incidente le hace recordar que, en 1976, cuando el tenia trece anos, esa misma casa sufrió otro ataque cuando vivian alli los Kuperman y Argentina ''estaba sumida en el terror de la Junta Militar''. Aquel suceso dejo ''una huella imborrable'' en la memoria de Leonardo, sobre todo por el papel que su padre jugo en todo aquello. Para rescatar aquel pasado que habia querido olvidar, el protagonista decide escribir una novela en la que le da voz tanto a las victimas como a los verdugos.
