"El cazador ausente" is an account of a generation caught up in the politics of their country, Peru. The narrative follows a group of friends in the 1970s -- all of whom are poets, writers and aspiring nationals leaders -- and the disintegration of their hope and dreams as they face years of jail sentences, seclusion, madness and exile. Fifteen years later, one of the members of the group, now a freelance photojournalist exiled in Germany, returns to Peru under the guise of a story he's working on for European magazines. Instead, he faces his ghosts and digs for the truth of what happened all those years ago. This is a commemorative edition of the original publication, which won the prestigious international Las Dos Orillas prize.
