Après los angeles mort de son père, murdereré par un tueur à gages à l. a. solde des ennemis de l. a. démocratie, Héctor Abad entreprend une longue, patiente et minutieuse enquête pour remonter aux origines du texte qu’il a découvert dans los angeles poche du défunt docteur Abad, un poème de Borges dont l’authenticité est mise en doute. Il s’immerge ainsi, au rythme de déambulations géographiques et littéraires, dans l. a. genèse du sonnet et en ses différentes models qui finissent par se multiplier de manière vertigineuse, types inédites et apocryphes se confondant. Héctor Abad tente ainsi de bâtir une mémoire et d’y trouver sa position.
Mais qu’est-ce que l. a. mémoire sinon une forme de l’imaginaire, comme l’écrit Borges ? Les récits autobiographiques qui composent ce livre ont cette consistance mixte : soit los angeles patiente reconstruction par indices d’un moveé qu’on ne se rappelle plus bien, soit l’étonnement devant un futur qui nous échappera peut-être à jamais. Partagé entre l’immémoire et l. a. floraison d’autres "moi", entre son malaise existentiel et los angeles multiplicité des possibles, Héctor Abad, dans le sillage du père tant goalé dont il a hérité l'exigence de justice, l'honnêteté, l. a. tendresse et l'émotion, est toujours en quête d'une vérité supérieure. Celle-là même qui fonde los angeles littérature.
