Synopsis

The Polish Boxercovers a vast landscape of human experience while enfolding a search for origins: a grandson tries to make sense of his grandfathers past and the story behind his numbered tattoo; a Serbian classical pianist longs for his forbidden heritage; a Mayan poet is torn between his studies and filial obligations; a striking young Israeli woman seeks answers in Central America; a university professor yearns for knowledge that he cant find in books and discovers something unexpected at a Mark Twain conference. Drawn to what lies beyond the range of reason, they all reach for the beautiful and fleeting, whether through humor, music, poetry, or unspoken words. Across his encounters with each of them, the narratora Guatemalan literature professor and writer named Eduardo Halfonpursues his most enigmatic subject: himself. Mapping the geography of identity in a world scarred by a legacy of violence and exile,The Polish Boxermarks the debut of a major new Latin American voice in English.
