The place is Medellín, Colombia’s second-largest city, and the time is the quarter-century from the early 1960s until 1987. Oblivion is a memorial to the author’s father, Héctor Abad Gómez, whose criticism of the Colombian regime led to his murder by paramilitaries in 1987. A work of deep feeling and consummate skill, 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.
