After discovering that his wife is unfaithful, Andy leaves home. He mourns the breakup and feels additional anguish at being separated from his young son, too. "Chancho de Agua" is a novel that explores the problems of a generation of 30-year-olds who refuse to mature and, at the same time, desperately seek adulthood. The work explores the preoccupation with identity, the lack of handholding, the destruction of the family, the questioning of values, and the refuge in new age spirituality. With a simple, direct and colloquial voice, author Sebastián Sigal delivers a fun, human, and sincere book. This is his first novel.
