My Fathers' Ghost Is Climbing in the Rain

My Fathers' Ghost Is Climbing in the Rain

$14.10 USD

by: Patricio Pron 

The American debut of one of Granta's Best Young Spanish-Language Novelists: a daring, deeply affecting novel about the secrets buried in the past of an Argentine family--a story of fathers and sons, corruption and responsibility, memory and history, with a mystery at its heart. A young writer, living abroad, returns home to his native Argentina to say good-bye to his dying father. In his parents' house, he finds a cache of documents--articles, maps, photographs--and unwittingly begins to unearth his father's obsession with the disappearance of a local man. Suddenly he comes face-to-face with the ghosts of Argentina's dark political past and with the long-hidden memories of his family's underground resistance against an oppressive military regime. As the fragments of the narrator's investigation fall into place--revealing not only a part of his father's life he had tried to forget but also the legacy of an entire generation--My Fathers' Ghost Is Climbing in the Rain tells a completely original story of family and remembrance. It is an audacious accomplishment by an internationally acclaimed voice poised to garner equal acclaim in America.
