"Eduardo Halfon is a brilliant storyteller."Daniel Alarcón, author ofLost City Radio andThe King Is Always Above the People

"It is not often that one encounters such a mix of personal engagement and literary passion, or pain and tenderness."Andrés Neuman, author ofTraveler of the Century andHow to Travel Without Seeing

InMourning, Eduardo Halfon's eponymous narrator travels to Poland, Italy, the U.S., and the Guatemalan countryside in search of secrets he can barely name. He follows memory's strands back to his maternal roots in Jewish Poland and to the contradictory, forbidden stories of his father's Lebanese-Jewish immigrant family, specifically surrounding the long-ago childhood death by drowning of his uncle Salomón. But what, or who, really killed Salomón? 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.

Mourning is a subtle and stirring reflection on the formative and destructive power of family mythology, silence, and loss.

Eduardo Halfon moved from Guatemala to the United States at the age of ten and attended school in South Florida and North Carolina. The recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship, Roger Caillois Prize, and José María de Pereda Prize for the Short Novel, he is the author of two previous novels published in English:The Polish Boxer, aNew York Times Editors' Choice selection and finalist for the International Latino Book Award, andMonastery, longlisted for the Best Translated Book Award.
