Description:
In this multi-award-winning autobiographical novel, Cristovao Tezza draws his readers into the mind of a young father whose son, Felipe, is born with Down syndrome. From the initial shock of diagnosis, and through his growing understanding of the world of hospitals and therapies, Tezza threads the story of his son's life with his own. Felipe, who lives in an eternal present, becomes a remarkable young man; for Tezza, however, the story is a settling of accounts with himself and his own limitations. He struggles with the phantom of shame, as if his son's condition were an indication of his own worth, and yearns for a 'normal' world that is always out of reach. It is extraordinary to encounter a common human drama - the birth of a disabled child - investigated profoundly by a father who happens to be a gifted novelist. The Eternal Son is an honest and insightful story that touches us all, written by one of Brazil's foremost novelists. It is world literature at its finest.
