Summary
Omar Razaghi, a twenty-eight-year-old doctoral student at the University of Kansas, has won a grant to write a biography of Jules Gund, a deceased Latin American writer. There's just one obstacle: Gund's family has not given him authorization. Undeterred, Omar travels to Uruguay, unannounced, to petition the author's three executors in person: Gund's widow, his much younger mistress, and his brother. Omar's arrival sets in motion a series of events that upsets the precarious balance of life at Ochos Rios, the family's crumbling estate. As long-standing relationships undergo seismic shifts and force the time-stuck inhabitants of Ochos to look toward that most dreaded of places: the future
Summary
After receiving a grant to write the biography of recently deceased Latin American author Jules Gund, graduate student Omar Razaghi's request to become Gund's official biogapher is turned down, prompting Omar to travel to Uruguay to try to persuade the author's literary heirs to change their minds.
