A groundbreaking piece of fiction from one of Mexico's most important writers, Pedro Paramo is a somewhat experimental exercise in fiction telling the tale of a boy's quest to uncover his forgotten and shadowy lineage. Disembodied voices, death cutting through time and space through the echoic utterances of the chiseled characters. The (un)lively soundscape of ghosts covers the Jalisco plains. Enchanting must-read in original Spanish. ( )
