Summary

Tras La hija de la española, llega la nueva revelación de la literatura latinoamericana: una asombrosa primera novela basada en un hecho real.

«La novela más hermosa de este año. [...] No apta para quienes disimulan, reprimen o tergiversan los sentimientos. En tres palabras, un texto bellísimo.»
Esteban Carlos Mejía, El Espectador

Cuando tenía once años, un sicario mató a mi padre. Yo era una niña que no imaginaba que algo así pudiera pasar. Pero pasó. Todavía me cuesta creer que apenas treinta y cinco gramos de acero y un gramo de pólvora hayan podido acabar con una familia.

Cuando Héctor Abad Faciolince, autor de El olvido que seremos, leyó esta primera novela, decidió publicarla de inmediato; muy poco después Lumen se sumaría a su entusiasmo. Tras el éxito en Colombia y mientras Francia prepara su traducción, Cómo maté a mi padre llega a los lectores de ambos lados del océano como una de las revelaciones literarias de los últimos tiempos.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

After La hija de la española / It Would Be Night in Caracas, comes the new revelation in Latin American literature: an amazing debut novel based on real life events.
 
“The most beautiful novel of the year. [...] Not suitable for those who conceal, repress, or misrepresent their feelings. In three words, a beautiful text.” — Esteban Carlos Mejía, El Espectador

When I was eleven years old, a hit-man killed my father. I was just a girl who could never have imagined that something like that could happen. But it happened. I still find it hard to believe that just thirty-five grams of steel and one gram of gunpowder could have put an end to a family.
 
When Héctor Abad Faciolince, author of El olvido que seremos / Oblivion: A Memoir, read this debut novel, he decided to publish it immediately; very soon after Lumen would also join in his enthusiasm for the text. After achieving great success in Colombia and while publishers in France prepare its French translation, How I Killed My Father reaches readers on both sides of the Atlantic as one of the recent literary revelations.
