Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Set in strife-torn Guatemala City in the early 1980s, this sophisticated, quasi-comedic tale depicts the decline and near-fall of a prominent Guatemalan Jewish family. In the face of military rule, terrorism, and sabotage, Marcos learns the truth about his brother Aaron, only to find that sibling secrets can be every bit as dangerous as civil unrest.

David Unger, born in Guatemala, is a prize winning translator, U.S. representative of the Guadalajara International Book Fair, and director of City College of New Yorks Publishing Certificate Program.
