Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An emotional, dramatic and philosophical novel about Americans drawn into a small Central American country on the brink of revolution.

Review:

"[A writer] who has slowly but with steadily strengthening power published five novels, unsurpassed so far as I know by his current peers....As in all Stone's novels, the story itself, the rhythm with which it's unreeled, the severity of the prose and the final resonance of all components are bleak, if not terrible." Reynolds Price, Salon.com

Review:

"[H]as the pace and suspense of a first-class thriller and brilliantly catches the shifting currents of contemporary Latin American politics." Charles McGrath, The New York Times Books of the Century

Synopsis:

Possessed of astonishing dramatic, emotional, and philosophical resonance, A Flag for Sunrise is a novel in the grand tradition about Americans drawn into the maelstrom of a small Central American country on the brink of revolution. From the book's inception, readers will be seized by the dangers and nightmare suspense of life lived on the rim of a political volcano.
