SummaryAdd a Summary
In the suburbs of Santiago, Chile, under the shadow of the Pinochet regime, a nine-year-old boy is asked by his neighbour’s niece to spy on her uncle. This is the beginning of a strange friendship, chronicling clandestine meetings with Claudia so that he can relate Raúl’s comings and goings. From there, the perspective shifts to the author of the novel we read in the first part. The writer is struggling with his manuscript, as well as his recent separation from his wife. Writing and life become intertwined as the author reveals his own childhood, and echoes of his present life begin to slip into the story, which contemplates home, identity, and family.
