My Fathers' Ghost is Climbing in the Rain

ebook

The anticipated 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 young writer, living abroad, makes the journey home to South America 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--this audacious novel tells a completely original story of corruption and responsibility, history and remembrance.
