El Inmortal

Sergio Alvarez

On a day like any other in contemporary Colombia, a child is born with the supreme gift of immortality. In the middle of a story that can be read almost without breathing, his life will take a thousand turns: he is snatched from his mother's arms, raised by nuns and priests, he will live in orphanages, with clans of gang members, thugs, drug dealers and shamans, always in search for the meaning of life and an explanation of its divine gift. Halfway between fantasy and hyperreality, between magical realism and social story, The Immortal is one of these strange books capable of describing society through imagination and condensing a fabulous world in a few pages. The result is a novel that is as tender as it is horrifying and, without a doubt, another leap forward in Sergio Alvarez's literary career.
