A Thousand Deaths Plus One by Sergio Ramirez

A Thousand Deaths Plus One is the narrative of a search for the lost history of an obscure Nicaraguan photographer named Juan Castelln. In 1987, the author/narrator, while on an state visit to Poland, happened upon an exhibition of hitherto unknown photographs by Castelln, who had pursued a career in Europe between roughly 1870 and 1940. The discovery initiates an obsessive quest to recover the lost artists historya quest that eventually carries the author from Vienna to Mallorca with points in between as he sifts through a trove of documentary evidence concerning a raffish cast of European and Central American characters. In alternating chapters Castelln offers his own story, from his bizarre conception in Nicaragua, to his education in France, to his nights of serious drinking with Rubn Daro, and lastly to a compromised finale in Nazi Germany. The result is a novel that may be said to personify the tragi-comic history of Nicaragua.
