For those interested in learning more about the book we will be discussing, here is a brief summary and a link to the book description and reader reviews on Amazon.
 

Simón Cardoso had been dead for thirty years when Emilia Dupuy, his wife, found him at lunchtime in the dining room of Trudy Tuesday. So begins Purgatory, the final and perhaps most personal work of the great Latin American novelist Tomás Eloy Martínez. Emilia Dupuy’s husband vanished in the 1970s, while the two were mapping an Argentine country road. All evidence seemed to confirm that he was among the thousands disappeared by the military regime. Yet Emilia never stopped believing that the disappeared man would reappear. And then he does, in New Jersey. And for Simón, no time at all has passed. In Martínez’s hands, this love story and ghost story becomes a masterful allegory for history political and personal, and for a country’s inability to integrate its past with its present. http://www.amazon.com/Purgatory-Novel-Tomás-Eloy-Mart%C3%ADnez/dp/B00AKRPSRS

Hope to see you on June 11th!
