The Man with No Borders
A father comes to terms with his mortality and secrets in a heartrending novel of family and forgiveness
The Man with No Borders is about a Spanish private banker living in a Swiss village with an American wife and facing the end of his life. Overcome by hallucinatory visions of the past, he revisits cherished memories of his boyhood in 1950s Franco-era Spain and fishing with his father and much-loved younger brother. But these fond reveries are soon eclipsed by family secrets and the devastating tragedy that drove José into exile and fills him with a soul-deep guilt.
Now, as his three estranged sons return to be at their father’s side, José hopes to outpace death long enough to finally put his house in order and exorcise its demons. Only in his quest for redemption can José begin to understand the meaning of his life – and what his legacy means to others.

On the balance sheet of the soul, family secrets eventually have to be accounted for and reconciled – usually at a marked-up price.
