'I loved my father with an animal love, his smell and also the memory of his smell on the bed when he was away on a trip... I felt for my father the same way my friends said they felt about their mothers.' Oblivion is a heartbreaking tribute to the author's father, Hector Abad Gomez, 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. Transcending the political, it also shines as one of the most exquisitely written accounts of profound love between a father and son that modern literature has to offer.
