The Land You Leave Behind


The Land You Leave Behind

Original title: Dejarás la Tierra
Author: Renato Cisneros

Shifting from the 21st century to the late 19th century, Renato Cisneros tells the story of the men in his father’s family, famous figures that he had admired since he was a child, without really knowing anything about their parallel lives and the similarities they have with his own life. By tracing his family tree, he unearths secrets, demolishes myths and identifies behavioral patterns that reconstruct the core truth about the Cisneros clan: a conservative family, with their roots closely tied to the birth of the republic of Peru, and whose most notable representatives exhausted their efforts to keep their private dramas away from the public spotlight. It is precisely the details of these intimate dramas that Renato Cisneros masterfully reconstructs in his new novel.
