As the sole descendant of his family line, he is not sure what to do or where he should go, but in the midst of this uncertainty, he holds fast to what his grandfather always told him: No man knows who he is until he knows his past, his history, the history of his country.As Oscar sets out to find his ancestral village of Pata de Puerco and the meaning of the magical pigs-foot amulet he has inherited, the search for his countrys hidden history becomes entangled with his search for the truth about himself and his family.Ambitious in scope yet intimate in tone, full of dark comedy, magical history, and startling revelations, Pigs Foot is a dazzling evocation of Cubas tumultuous history, and a spell-binding debut.
