Fiction - Published: 1/Dec/2016 - ISBN: 9781632061034

A dazzling debut about the demented final project of a brilliant mathematician, recalling the best of Bolano, Borges, and Calvino, Colonel Lagrimas is an allegory of our hyper-informed age and of the clash between European and Latin American history. Loosely based on the fascinating life story of the eccentric mathematician Alexander Grothendieck, Colonel Lagrimas is a world-spanning tour de force of history, politics, literature, mathematics, and philosophy that wears its learning lightly, forming an appealingly human story of the forces that created the modern world.
