The novel of my life

Synopsis

What is a profession, but a passion that is lived “seriously”, which a person professes? What subtle threads can be spread between music, neurosurgery, theology, history, psychology, literature and politics?

Marcos Aguinis travels through the intimacies of his life as a succession of professions, chained or overlapped, preciously merged or cannibalized to be reduced to mere memory. At the same time, reflects on his quests and personal battles –loves, teachers, frustrations, the day he his father cry- and combines them with sharp reflections about major contemporary landmarks such as global shake ups, the Arab-Israeli conflict, Algeria, the missile crisis, dictatorships, and populism. He does not skimp to confess the footprints left by his travels and interactions with personalities like Ionesco and Filloy, García Márquez, Vargas Llosa and Borges, Edith Piaf and Heinrich Böll, Rajiv Gandhi, Illia, John XXIII, President Alfonsin and Pope Francis, among many others.
