The Informers free pdf A virtuosic novel about family, history, memory, and betrayal from the brightest new Latin American literary talent working today. When Gabriel Santoro[?'s biography is scathingly reviewed by his own father, a public intellectual and famous Bogot rhetorician, Gabriel could not imagine what had pierced his icy exterior to provoke such a painful reaction. A volume that catalogues the life of Sara Guterman, a longtime family friend and Jewish immigrant, since her arrival in Colombia in the 1930s, A Life in Exile seemed a slim, innocent exercise in recording modern history. But as a devastated Gabriel delves, yet again, into Sara[?'s story, searching for clues to his father[?'s anger, he cannot yet see the sinister secret buried in his research that could destroy his father[?'s exalted reputation and redefine his own. After his father[?'s mysterious death in a car accident a few years later, Gabriel sets out anew to navigate half a century of half-truths and hidden meanings. With the help of Sara Guterman and his father[?'s young girlfriend, Angelina, layer after shocking layer of Gabriel[?'s world falls away and a complex portrait of his father emerges from the ruins. From the streets of 1940s Bogot to a stranger[?'s doorstep in 1990s Medelln, he unravels the web of doubt, betrayal, and guilt at the core of his father[?'s life and he wades into a dark, longsilenced period of Colombian history after World War II. With a taut, riveting narrative and achingly beautiful prose, Juan Gabriel Vsquez delivers an expansive, powerful exploration of the sins of our fathers, of war[?'s devastating psychological costs, and of the inescapability of the past. A novel that has earned Vsquez comparisons to Sebald, Borges, Roth, and Mrquez, The Informers heralds the arrival of a major literary talent.
