Much for my own personal political convictions The book deals mostly with celebrating the love social justice work ideas charity that his father was involved in and only the last few chapters actually dealt with his murder Hector wrote it as a way of stretching out the memory of his father a little bit before it is inevitably casted into the oblivion of forgetting the way we forget about so many people I m sure that will happen but I am so glad that I have known of his father in my own little way too the oblivion that awaits can be deferred a moment This book about the intense love the affection the silence carried by the father son relationship is xtremely moving This is definately on my list of favourite books A must read a must read kinda book 3 Wow This is an xtremely difficult book for me to review Oblivion is an impassioned memorial to the author s father DrHector Abad Gomez who was assassinated by Colombian paramilitaries in response to his leftist humanist writings The writing is incredible making the horror of those years of violence and death suads immediate and wrenchingThe author idolized his father and I found the first two thirds of the book tiresome because of the constant drumbeat of how perfect his father was On page 209 he writes I don t want to write hagiography but by then I felt it was than a

This is a very sentimental book Hector Abad manages to xpress the ndless love he has for
His Father An Undeniablefather an undeniable and influential character of 20th century s Colombia Victim of his beliefs and ideology he is murdered in the streets of Medell n as many other good people have in such a violent and intolerant countryI see my own father in many of his stories and particularly njoyed the dilemmas he had with a highly religious society including his own familyTo many it might seem a biased self centered book but I think that anybody with Hector s writing talent should use it in any way they feel Many like me will find this book Divertimento engaging beautifully written andven compatible with their own life We are all condemned to dust and to oblivionwe survive for a few fragile years after death in the memory of others This is the beautifully written homage to the author s father Hector Abad Gomez a loving caring and intellectual man who was a medical doctor university professor and human rights leader whose vision of healthcare for all Colombians led him to found the Colombian National School of Public Health This gentle man who nvisioned a better world and tirelessly worked to make it a reality was brutally murdered by conservative Colombian paramilitaries in 1987 during a time when brutality against liberal thinkers was common This wonderful book tells the story of the author s childhood in Medellin Colombia the only boy among five sisters growing up with a father who was devoted to him teaching him about life and sharing with him all the beauty of poetry and books and classical music and a mother who was the practical head of the household and a savvy business woman But the book is primarily about the truly special and mutually adoring relationship between a father and a son and that son s powerful meditation on the loss of his fatherI don t think I have read a powerful or xuisitely written memoir I highly recommend this book Catching
up with books I read a couple of months ago I m way behind This is one of the oneswith books I read a couple of months ago I m way behind This is one of the ones said I would read in the contemporary Latin American literature It is b I had listened to Hector during a panel at Singapore Writers Festival last week and was so moved so impressed by the chapter he read that I immediately bought the book after the reading was lucky nough to have it signed I read it steadily throughout the week during my commutes and today I completed it sitting below my block When the sadder chapters arrived I found myself tearing up in trains and finally my block When the sadder chapters arrived I found myself tearing up in trains and finally I got to the final 20 pages I found myself with a pained throat and watery yes from holding back tears I cannot imagine what it must have been like for him to have written such a book to recount such a memory That it took 20 years for him to finally pen it down is something that is understandable I cannot imagine what it must have taken to write it down but I am thankful that he shared the story of his father his family to the worldDuring the panel someone asked about challenges aside from the obvious he said that the literary tradition was replete with stories about bad fathers Daddy issues And how would people take his book that is about a good father a perfect father a father that he loved so much and in his yes could barely do any wrong And in fact I find that his book was such a wonderful read precisely because it provides a model for fatherhood that isn t made toxic by a certain brand of masculinity He did mention that his father had a certain kind of machismo but it was wonderful to read how his father was unashamed of his xuberant physical affections with his son kissing hugging him Bangkok Wakes to Rain even if it was seen as ueer by relatives Saying a string of verbal affections that one might findmbarrassing In a society where the The Right Sort of Man (Sparks Bainbridge Mystery expression of direct affection by men is notncouraged it s wonderful to read an Darkmere example where the opposite is doneHis father truly sounds like an incredible human being a person whose moral humanist values are worthmulating I truly njoyed the bits where Hector talked about the way his father dealt with the challenges and the confusions of his son his open mindedness his unconditional love I have learned so.
