Overview

Christof, Christophe, Christopher, and Cristòfol are four brothers—sons of the same father and four very different mothers—yet none of them knows of the others’ existence. They live in four different cities: Frankfurt, Paris, London, and Barcelona. Unbeknownst to them, they have one thing in common: Gabriel Delacruz—a truck driver—abandoned them when they were little and they never heard from him again.

Then one day, Cristòfol is contacted by the police: his father is officially a missing person. This fact leads him to discover that he has three half-brothers, and the four young men come together for the first time. Two decades have passed since their father last saw any of them. They barely remember what he was like, but they decide to look for him to resolve their doubts. Why did he abandon them? Why do all four have the same name? Did he intend for them to meet?

Divided by geography yet united by blood, the “Christophers” set out on a quest that is at once painful, hilarious, and extraordinary. They discover a man who during thirty years of driving was able to escape the darkness of Franco’s Spain and to explore a luminous Europe, a journey that, with the birth of his sons, both opened and broke his heart.

08/12/2013
The spark of magical realism enlivens Punti’s debut novel about four abandoned sons—Christof, Christopher, Christophe, and Cristòfol—who, as adults, learn of each other’s existence after their father disappears. They join forces to search for him but discover it’s tough to track down a stranger: “Only somebody who’s previously appeared can disappear and that’s not the case with our father,” they say. Gabriel Delacruz, their father, lived an itinerant’s life in Franco’s Spain, visiting his lovers and sons in Germany, England, and France when his job as a mover took him there. Punti’s expansive story, written from each son’s point of view and, interestingly, from their joint perspective, mainly tells of how Gabriel met their mothers: Christof’s he seduced when ice shut down the roads outside Frankfurt; Christopher’s, a nurse, came to his aid during a memorable passage to England; Christophe’s he found inside of a wardrobe he was moving; and Cristòfol’s encountered Gabriel at El Prat airport, certain that he was her astrological soul mate. Punti also takes time for forays into the colorful lives of minor characters; while some of those detours feel too long, they impart narrative richness. The result is a mostly successful experiment in perspective, made lively by Punti’s extensive knowledge of the landscapes of Europe. (Oct.)
