Che, My brother by Juan Martín Guevara and Armelle Vincent springs from a testimony that embraces family history and big history, biography and self-fiction. Che Guevara’s biography is the narration of a life propelled by a drive for justice. With this book Juan Martín sets his own story in motion, finds the texture of his life and retraces his traumatic past, charting the casual order of his memories. Juan Martín’s memoir reveals the doubling of every autobiographical adventure; it reconstructs Che’s personal journey far from the myth, and inevitably halts in front of the impossibility of transferring such an exemplary life.
