A man, whose name is not revealed until half the novel, goes to Comala to pay a promise made to his mother on her death bed: to find his father and claim what is theirs. The story of Juan's experience, his search for identity and his heritage, is interwoven with the tale of his father, Pedro Paramo.
Pedro Paramo dominates the landscape of the novel which flows hynotically through dreams, desires and memories. The novel propels the reader down a dusty forgotten road to a town of death, a place populated by ghosts and living memories.
Juan Rulfo's extraordinarily powerful novel, Pedro Paramo, captures the essence of life in rural Mexico during the last years of the 19th century, and the beginning of the 20th.
