Ricardo Piglia, one of the great narrators in the Spanish language, has the urge to go back to his country, as if he suddenly feels that his time is running out. He resigns from Princeton University and returns to Argentina to stay after years of living abroad. Piglia decides to closely read his intimate diary for the first time. A record of 50 years of life. 327 identical notebooks await him, all with black oilskin covers, stored away in 40 cardboard boxes.
