Whatever
I'm glad the newer edition has a different cover. The old cover looks like it depicts the narrator's mother, but this one looks like it depicts Flor de Mayo Puac, the woman who was brought to the US (NYC area, I think) to be the family maid & care for the Narrator who, as a boy, was very ill. The father decides to adopt Flor & send her to school.
Sadly, she goes back to Guatemala and meets her demise. What I loved about this story is how much I learned, especially about Guatemala, but also about the area in the East Coast where the family lives. Flor's death remains a mystery, but the reader comes out championing Flor as a hero who tried to save the Indian children who, like her, have been removed so that Indian land can be taken over by corporate greed.
This is one of the best stories I've ever read. Garcia Marquez ain't got nothin' on Francisco Goldman!

An interesting and involving storyline that takes you into another country's cultural psyche through the experiences of the protagonist's cross cultural upbringing. The plot follows the investigation of two friends into the murder of a young woman who grew up with one of them in Boston, and was romantically involved with the other in the time before her murder in Guatemala. However the plot often wanders into side trips into the Guatemalan culture and the affects of American culture on the emigrant experience. It reminds us that life is not a straight line from point A to Point B, but rather it's more like the trajectory of a pin ball through flippers and bumpers with numerous wildly divergent flips, bumps, and ricochets.

I travel in Guatemala often, so felt at home with all the place names and allusions to historical events that affect the present.
At times Goldman's long convoluted sentences put me off, but most interesting are the character traits of the narrator, that you the reader eventually deduce. It's a who-dun-it based on one grandmother's decision to send a young orphan girl to the States to be a maid and how that one event affected so many lives.
Tekasa
A good story and reader is kept in the dark until the end. However, it really drags at times, there is way too much time spent on personnel interactions and you get impatient with the author for doing so. I would have given up on the book d way through except I wanted to know who the murderer was. The book could have used better editing to deal with this. Also, the frequent use of Spanish without translations was very inconsiderate of te non-Spansh reader.
Adrietius
Authentic, passionate, provocative. I lived in Guatemala for 33 years and Frank captures both the tone there, as well as the tone in those select communities in the US that knew that Guatemala exists.
Faell
Francisco Goldman has the uncanny ability to express his characters thoughts and sub thoughts. To add an “ah ha” to a previous conversation. He is an extraordinary talent.
Chillhunter
Very evocative. I could recognize situations and places in Guatemal City that I knew well. Captured well the miasma surrounding shocking events and people. Also liked Goldman's book on the murder of Bishop Gerardi.
Whatever the editor of this book got paid, he owes Goldman a refund. It is too long by half. The book meanders around exploring first one tangential event, then another, then another. The plot gets circumnavigated time and again without ever telling the story with any forward momentum. It is saved by vivid writing, complex characters, and interesting settings. Somewhere in there is a great 250 page novel.
