Summary
In 1977, three terrorists broke into Gabriela Ybarra's grandfather's home, and pointed a gun at him in the shower. This was the last time his family saw him alive, and his kidnapping played out in the press, culminating in his murder. Ybarra first heard the story when she was eight, but it was only after her mother's death, years later, that she felt the need to go deeper and discover more about her family's past. 'The Dinner Guest' is a novel, with the feel of documentary non-fiction. It connects two life-changing events - the very public death of Ybarra's grandfather, and the more private pain as her mother dies from cancer and Gabriela cares for her
