Publisher Comments:

The Marks of Birth is set m the island of Barata, an imaginary Cuba, and portrays a family caught up in political events. When the revolutionary forces of Nicolas Campion seize power, Anton Garcia-Turner is forced to flee the island by boat. His arrival in Key West, and later in New York City, marks the beginning of the marvels and horrors he will encounter in el Norte and of his realization that his personal destiny can only be "fulfilled in blood." Beautifully written — with humor, intensity, and imaginative brilliance — The Marks of Birth is a powerful portrait of a people in exile.
