Summary, etc.:
In Mourning, a mysterious tragedy inspires Eduardo Halfon's eponymous narrator on a journey across the globe and through the tangled memories of childhood to discover what, or who, really killed his uncle Salomon. As he goes deeper, he realizes that the truth lies buried in his own past, in the brutal Guatemala of the 1970s and his subsequent exile to the American South. Subtle and stirring, Mourning is a reflection on the formative and destructive power of family mythology, silence and loss.
