About this product
- DescriptionLater on, when Abe - w a young man with dreams of belonging - went to live in his parents' country, he went to the village of his family and had a tomb built in the churchyard for eventual use. Life went on, with work, children, schooling. Three decades later the tomb was still uccupied when, during the civil war, the cemetry was destroyed. Abe's grandchildren joined the saga of emigration and started to become familiar with its pattern. During the twentieth century ne of their ancestors - on their father's side as well as their mother's - spent their whole life in the same country. The different cemetries in which each of them ended up indicated the itinerary of that saga. In an evocative series of reminiscences and personal recollections, the narrator, Abe, tries to approach the inner worlds of immigrants seeking to belong while still navigating in the middle of 'Nowhere'.
