Publisher's summary

"Héctor Abad ha escrito una historia trágica e inolvidable".

J. M. Coetzee.

El 25 de agosto de 1987 Héctor Abad Gómez, médico y activista en pro de los derechos humanos, es asesinado en Medellín. Este libro es su biografía novelada, escrita por su propio hijo. Un relato desgarrador y emocionante sobre la familia, que refleja, al tiempo, el infierno de la violencia que ha golpeado Colombia en los últimos cincuenta años.

"Como niño yo quería algo imposible: que mi padre no se muriera nunca. Como escritor quise hacer algo igual de imposible: que mi padre resucitara. Si hay personajes ficticios -hechos de palabras- que siempre estarán vivos, ¿no es posible que una persona real siga viva si la convertimos en palabras? Eso quise hacer con mi padre muerto: convertirlo en alguien tan vivo y tan real como un personaje ficticio" Héctor Abad Faciolince.

Please note: This audiobook is in Spanish.

Sublime

Honestamente, después de ver la película es que busqué el libro y fue, mucho más profundo y sensible de lo que pude esperar.
No te sorprendas si te hace llorar, si ríes involuntariamente al recordar algún pasaje o si como yo, te quedes con la eterna duda, ¿cómo se define el ser un hombre bueno?
Dale una oportunidad a este libro, lo vale de principio a fin.

A tribute to an amazing father

I just came back from Bogota and being there remind me of the years that the capital or as a matter of fact, the whole country was under violence. This book last 3 days that I reread in a book that I bought there. I love how he described his years growing up, I was like a silent witness of his childhood, and sorry with him in the lost of his sister and later father that was never perfect, but want to leave a more justice word. To wake up the social conscience or the imagination that allow to feel the reality from a different point of view. Highly recommended a tribute to a life, to a father to someone that believe in a son regardless of the circumstances.
