This is one of those Must Read books that you never get around to reading until you finally get around to reading and then you realize, "Wow, this is a must read."
Set in a disturbing ghost town (quite literally a town of ghosts), Pedro Paramo is on a search for his father, who he's never met. The dead clamor at each other, empty houses are occupied, and strange memories--memories of others--crawl all about Pedro. Creepy, brisk, and great. If you can find a copy, pick it up.

Product details 128 pages Grove Press - English 9780802133908 Reviews:
"Review" by , "A strange, brooding novel....Great immediacy, power, and beauty."
"Review" by , "A powerful fascination...vivid and haunting; the style is a triumph."
"Review" by , "When Susan Sontag, in her foreword to this book, calls Pedro Páramo 'one of the masterpieces of 20th-century world literature,' she is not being hyperbolic. With its dense interweaving of time, its routine interaction of the living and the dead, its surreal sense of the everyday, and with simultaneous — and harmonious — coexistence of apparently incompatible realities, this brief novel by the Mexican writer Juan Rulfo strides through unexplored territory with a sure and determined step....Having it now in all its depth and texture is a major event for which the publisher and the translator, Margaret Sayers Peden, deserve thanks."
"Review" by , "No reader interested in the vitality of 20th century Latin American fiction can afford to miss this work."
"Review" by , "As close to perfect as a piece of writing gets."
"Review" by , "A modern classic....Peden's lucid translation does justice to a tale that is firmly rooted in its own culture yet so fundamentally human in its focus that it speaks across cultural borders."
"Synopsis" by , Dentro de su brevedad, determinada por el rigor y la concentración expresiva, Pedro Páramo sintetiza la mayor parte de los temas que han interesado siempre a los mexicanos, ese misterio nacional que el talento de Juan Rulfo ha sabido condensar por medio de los cotidianos habitantes de Comala, región inscrita ya en la mitología literaria universal.
