Publisher's Summary

A young writer, living abroad, returns home to his native Argentina to say goodbye 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 long-forgotten memories of his family’s resistance against an oppressive military regime.
Told through the fragments of the narrator’s investigation - as he pieces together not only a portrait of his father but also the legacy of an entire generation - My Father's Ghost Is Climbing in the Rain is a completely original story of family and remembrance: an audacious accomplishment by an acclaimed new voice.


What the Critics Say

"In the face of denial and forgetting, Pron has stitched the experiences of the activists, their survivors, and those who came later into a narrative that ties the individual to collective memory and a family’s history to a nation’s." (Publishers Weekly)
