Description

From the author of The Sound of Things Falling, a powerful novel about a legendary political cartoonist. Javier Mallarino is a living legend. He is his country's most influential political cartoonist, the conscience of a nation. A man capable of repealing laws, overturning judges' decisions, and destroying politicians' careers with his art. His weapons are pen and ink. Those in power fear him and pay him homage. After four decades of a brilliant career, he's at the height of his powers. But this all changes when he's paid an unexpected visit by a young woman who upends his personal history and forces him to reconsider his life and work, questioning his position in the world. In Reputations, Juan Gabriel VAsquez examines the weight of the past, how a public persona intersects with private histories, the burdens and surprises of memory. In this intimate novel, VAsquez once again brilliantly plumbs universal experiences to create a masterly story, one that reverberates long after you turn the final page.
