Editorial Reviews

Reynolds Price
It's the work of a living American, one 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.
Salon
Charles McGrath
...[H]as the pace and suspense of a first-class thriller and brilliantly catches the shifting currents of contemporary Latin American politics. -- The New York Times Books of the Century

    Mailer and Denis Johnson come to mind

    I picked this up after hearing a review on NPR recently in which the reviewer seemed unable to fully express his fondness for the book; he liked it that much. I am almost there with him. I will probably try to re-read this soon in a much less interrupted state than this first read. The main characters, which there are several, each develop as they are being drawn into their own small role in the revolution of Tecan, a fictitious Central American country sharing the characteristics of many we all know. Reading the book brought me a fresh take on the balance and complexities which American and other foreign missionaries always have to operate in the bleak landscapes they are hoping to aid. Addiction, delusion, greed, corruption, and disillusion are some of the portraits Stone expertly illustrates. You will carry parts of this book with you for some time.
