A Foreign Father

Eduardo Berti

NOVEL. TUSQUETS, 2016. 328 PAGES.

Two fathers and a silent, almost absent relationship with their only sons. Two families trying to understand the enigma of a foreign father. Immigrants who decide to reinvent themselves far from their native land where they must learn a new language. Writers reading other people's works, using them to unravel the mystery of their own lives. Closely guarded secrets, difficult to share.

This branching story combines fiction and autobiographical prose to create a cross between a making of documentary and the film itself, ingeniously reinventing the father-son novel.

Nothing in A Foreign Father by Eduardo Berti is casual or arbitrary: the moving, funny, complex plot is a wonderfully detailed concoction. The writing flows with a beauty that is bound to charm the reader.
