Summary
This is a fascinating, non-fiction novel, saturated with fiction; the fiction isnt created by the author, but by Enric Marco. Who is Enric Marco? A 90-year-old man from Barcelona who posed as a Nazi concentration camp survivor and who was exposed in May of 2005 after presiding for three years over the Spanish association for survivors, speaking at hundreds of conferences, granting dozens of interviews, receiving important honors, and even moving Spanish congressmen to tears for the first gathering to pay homage to the Republicans deported by the Third Reich. The case threw the world for a loop and labeled Marco as a great imposter. Now, nearly a decade later, Javier Cercas beseiges the enigma that is the man, his truths and lies, and, through the investigation that traverses nearly a century of Spanish history, delves with a kamikazes passion and heartbreaking honesty into the deepest part of ourselves: into our infinite ability to self-deceive, our need for conformity and our lies, our insatiable thirst for affection, our opposing needs for fiction and reality, and into the most painful zones of our recent past
