Lorenza y Mateo se sienten perdidos en su propia historia. #65533;l a#65533;n no entiende por qu#65533; su padre --Ram#65533;n, un argentino militante de la resistencia contra la dictadura de Videla-- decide desaparecer un d#65533;a sin dejar rastro. Ella nunca ha sido capaz de explicarle a su hijo las razones por las que su padre se convirti#65533; de repente en una amenaza. En busca de Ram#65533;n y tratando de reconstruir los fragmentos que componen su pasado, estos dos personajes, que a veces se acercan y a veces se alejan como antagonistas, vuelven a Buenos Aires y recorren la ciudad mientras Lorenza le cuenta a Mateo la vida que ella y Ram#65533;n llevaron durante la dictadura. Para acallar el dolor, el miedo y la p#65533;rdida, la madre amansa pacientemente las palabras mientras el hijo adolescente pregunta y cuestiona. Los dos se someten a la tarea cotidiana de descubrir a trav#65533;s de la conversaci#65533;n por qu#65533; y c#65533;mo han llegado a este punto que al parecer tiene una #65533;nica salida: que ella escriba esta historia y que #65533;l encuentre a su padre. Esta es una novela sobre la revelaci#65533;n y la ca#65533;da de los h#65533;roes que habitan las luchas p#65533;blicas y las privadas, sobre las relaciones entre padres e hijos, sobre un amor y una utop#65533;a, que irremediablemente encuentran su fin. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION Lorenza and Mateo feel lost in their own history. He cannot understand why his father, Ram#65533;n--an Argentine militant in the resistance against Videla's dictatorship--decides to disappear without a trace. She cannot find the words to explain to her son why his father suddenly became a threat. In searching for Ram#65533;n while reconstructing the fragments that make up their past, these two characters, at times close partners, at times opponents, return to Buenos Aires. Scouring the city, Lorenza talks to Mateo about the life she and Ram#65533;n led during the dictatorship. Quieting the pain, fear and loss, the mother tones down the words while her teenage son inquires and questions everything. Both subject to the daily task of discovering, through conversations, how they've reached this point of no return where she must write the story and he must find his father. A novel about revelation, about the fall of heroes who inhabit private and public battles, about the relationship between parents and children, and about a love and an unattainable dream that will inevitably meet their end.
