Description: An astonishing debut novel by a “once-in-a-generation talent” (George Saunders), The People of Paperis a beaushy;tiful lamentation, the sad love song of two men left behind by the women they love.nbsp; nbsp; Federico de la Fe is a loving father and husband, but when his wife disappears he and his daughter must start a new life together. They leave their home in Mexico and head for California. On the way they meet an assortment of people, including a woman made of paper, who gives nasty paper cuts and melts in the rain. Even in sunny California, Federico de la Fe feels plagued by sadness and haunted by an oppressive force overhead. When his oppressor is eventually revealed, it is none other than his creator, the author of The People of Paper, Salvador Plascencia. Like Federico de la Fe, he, too, has been abandoned by the woman he loves—his girlfriend, Liz. nbsp;And so the stories of the author and his characters come together—strangely, seamlessly, magically. A breathtaking book about the wounds inflicted by first love.
