“A beautiful and profoundly moving work . . . An irreplaceable testimony of the struggle for democracy and tolerance in Latin America.” —El PaísOblivion is a heartbreaking, exquisitely written memorial to the author’s father, Héctor Abad Gómez, whose criticism of the Colombian regime led to his murder by paramilitaries in 1987. Twenty years in the writing, it paints an unforgettable picture of a man who followed his conscience and paid for it with his life during one of the darkest periods in Latin America’s recent history.
