"Pequeños cementerios bajo la luna" is a novel about Emilio Ortiz, a young, middle class Chilean man who leads a relaxed life in Paris, where he's a grad student in linguistics. He passes his days obsessing over a mysterious girl, and working as a janitor at a small hotel where he gets to meet a variety of characters. Over time, he has placed a physical and emotional distance between him and his conservative family, and with his wounded country that still bears the scars of a traumatic dictatorship. His tranquility collapses, however, when he discovers his father's friendship with one of the main leaders of the repression in Chile, and a series of events that could change what they accepted about his father's end: his suicide.
