Summary
  • "±Pasaron el tiempo y una multitud de cosas, tantas que ahora forman un torbellino. Estoy aquí solo, la sombra del cuerpo se ha ido alargando, a la vez que vuelven a mí mechas sueltas de aquellos tiempos». Un hombre regresa, después de mucho tiempo, a su lugar de origen y, apostado en un punto desde el que puede ver todos aquellos sitios que marcaron su vida -su hogar, la escuela, donde jugaba con sus amigos, donde experimentó el dolor, la violencia, el miedo y el odio-, recuerda su infancia y esa frontera vital que es el paso a la adolescencia. Mil doscientos pasos es la distancia exacta que separa a este hombre de la casa familiar en esta historia de iniciación, de amistad, de descubrimiento de la vida y también de la maldad, de secretos no confesados por el temor a las consecuencias. Esta novela es el relato emocionante de un momento crítico de nuestro pasado: los años duros y oscuros de la posguerra" --
  • "±Time passed and a multitude of things, so many that now they form a whirlwind. I am here alone, the shadow of the body has been lengthening, while loose strands of those times return to me». A man returns, after for a long time, to his place of origin and, stationed at a point from which he can see all those places that marked his life - his home, school, where he played with his friends, where he experienced pain, violence, fear and hatred-, recalls his childhood and that vital frontier that is the passage to adolescence. One thousand two hundred steps is the exact distance that separates this man from the family home in this story of initiation, of friendship, of discovery of life and also of evil, of secrets not confessed for fear of the consequences. This novel is the moving account of a critical moment in our past: the hard and dark years of the postwar period" --
