One of the late Juan Jose Saer's most beloved novels, The Regal Lemon Tree shows a master stylist at his best. Set during the day and night of New Year's Eve - building up a barbecue that takes on ritual significance - the novel focuses on a couple in the north of Argentina who lost their only son six years prior. Wenceslao spends the day with his extended family and his memories while his wife - truly paralysed by grief - refuses to leave their island, which is home to an almost magical lemon tree that blossoms at all times of the year.
