Product Details
Un joven escritor argentino regresa a su país de ori­gen para despedirse de su padre enfermo y se adentra involuntariamente en la historia de su familia a la vez que en la suya propia. Al hacerlo, procura compren­der quién fue su padre y en qué creyó durante los años que precedieron a su nacimiento, un período de convulsión política en Argentina lleno de atrocida­des y clandestinidad. También descubre que su padre buscaba antes de morir a un hombre desaparecido en extrañas circunstancias y se pregunta si en su historia y en la de su padre no hay una simetría. Desde el pri­mer momento se intuye la gravedad del asunto, que apunta al sustrato podrido de una pequeña comu­nidad de la Pampa argentina, pero también una se­gunda simetría: el desaparecido era hermano de una joven amiga de su padre, secuestrada y asesinada por las fuerzas represivas del Estado argentino en 1977, y la búsqueda del joven escritor argentino que narra esta historia se convierte en la de un padre pero tam­bién en la de una respuesta, por dolorosa que ésta sea.

[*] Buyers will receive rewards credits (Rewards) to their rewards account as set forth in seller’s listing. In the near future, Public Market plans to launch the Patron token (PTRN), a blockchain-based rewards token. PTRN will exist on the Ethereum blockchain as a store of value and will contribute toward unlocking benefits in our upcoming membership program. Once the PTRN tokens have been made available to the public, your Rewards may be redeemed, at the option of the company, only for PTRN tokens at the then-market value. The PTRN token may then be deposited to your crypto wallet (see Rewards Terms for process). If PTRN tokens are not made available to the public by March 31, 2020, you may request redemption of the amount of Rewards in your Rewards account, and Company will deliver the Rewards to you in the form of, in its discretion, either (a) USD; or (b) an equivalent credit (e.g., Public Market store credit or other value). If the PTRN token is made available to the public, rewards are not redeemable in USD or an equivalent credit. Rewards are available only to US-based buyers using a US shipping and billing address. See How It Works, FAQs and Rewards Terms for more information.
