A young writer, living abroad, returns home to his native Argentina to say goodbye to his dying father. In his parents' house, he finds a cache of documents—articles, maps, photographs—and unwittingly begins to unearth his father's obsession with the disappearance of a local man. Suddenly he comes face to face with the ghosts of Argentina's dark political past and long-forgotten memories of his family's resistance against an oppressive military regime.

Told through the fragments of the narrator's investigation—as he pieces together not only a portrait of his father but also the legacy of an entire generation—My Father's Ghost Is Climbing in the Rain is a completely original story of family and remembrance: an audacious accomplishment by an acclaimed new voice.
