La Guitarra - This delicate autobiography of a guitar emerges as a new literary genre in which a classical guitar narrates an intimate story of love and hatred, passion and pain, torment and resolve; woven together in a multicultural musical web. La Guitarra recounts how desperately she needed someone to play her; someone to love her. In early-summer1971, Canadian musician Alaire Dubois discovers her in a small shop in Mexico City and changes her life forever. The two become inseparable. La Guitarra lives, loves and works with Alaire who is commissioned to compose a symphonic requiem that blends Eastern and Western music and is centered on the concepts of Yin and Yang. Everything seems to be going just right for the two of them. She effectively communicates with him through their music and she shares intimately in the close relationships that he forms in Mexico City and El Salvador. Her life is complete, but all too soon she realizes that something is terribly wrong. Alaire is driven by unknown and frightening forces and she can do nothing to prevent the downward spiral of the new world they share. She watches helplessly as Alaire struggles with the torments of his personal life. She shares in his frustration when his musical creativity dissolves. She knows with certainty, that he is ill but why does he hide his illness from his friends and his new lover? What is wrong with him? Will he overcome his personal demons? Will his inspiration return? Will they finish the magnificent symphony together, before it's too late?
