Description:

Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "This is a brilliant, unforgettable novel. I was so entertained by Patricio Pron's inventive, poetic, deranging sentences that I found myself thinking of Lewis Carroll." -Francisco Goldman, author of Say Her Name "Patricio Pron is an immense talent, a daring writer with an absolutely unique voice. My Fathers' Ghost Is Climbing in the Rain is a marvel." -Daniel Alarcn, author of Lost City Radio "With subtle intelligence, poetic insight, and exquisite style, My Fathers' Ghost Is Climbing in the Rain confirms Pron's position as one of the finest novelists writing in Spanish today." -Alberto Manguel, author of All Men Are Liars "From a major new voice in Spanish literature, this novel should grant Pron a much-deserved readership in the English-speaking world . . . A melancholy and chilling work of postmodernism, examining family, memory, and what collective fear does to a society." - Booklist "A sublime accomplishment, radiant and wrenching. You'll never see Argentina-or fathers or sons or the human soul-the same way again." -Carolina De Robertis, author of Perla "A moving exploration of guilt and memory, and an unflinching study of what History can do to us. Pron opens his eyes where the rest of us would rather close them and keep them closed." -Juan Gabriel Vsquez, author of The Informers. Bookseller Inventory #

Synopsis:

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. 

About the Author: Patricio Pron, born in 1975, is the author of three story collections and four previous novels, and he also works as a translator and critic. His fiction has appeared in Granta, Zoetrope: All-Story and The Paris Review, and has received numerous prizes, including the Juan Rulfo Short Story Prize and the Jaén Novel Prize. He lives in Madrid.
