Pedro Paramo Summary


Pedro Paramo by Juan Rulfo

Swearing to his dying mother that he'll find the father he has never met, a certain Pedro Paramo, Juan Preciado sets out across the barren plains of Mexico for Comala, the hallucinatory ghost town his father presided over like a feudal lord. Between the realms of the living and the dead, in fragments of dreams and the nightly whispers of Comala's ghosts, there emerges the tragic tale of Pedro Paramo and the town whose every corner holds the taint of his rotten soul.

Pedro Paramo Reviews


The essential Mexican novel, unsurpassed and unsurpassable ... extraordinary -- Carlos Fuentes
A simplicity and profundity worthy of Greek tragedy ... Wuthering Heights located in Mexico and written by Kafka * Guardian *
That night I didn't sleep until I'd read it twice; not since I had read Kafka's Metamorphosis in a dingy boarding house in Bogota, almost ten years earlier, had I felt so thunderstruck -- Gabriel Garcia Marquez
Pedro Paramo is not only one of the masterpieces of twentieth-century world literature but one of the most influential of the century's books -- Susan Sontag
