After the Bombs

(1990)
A novel by

 
 
After the Bombs is a coming of age story that holds a mirror up to the modern history of Guatemala--a funhouse mirror of richly inventive and farcical black comedy which provides a better description of life in that country than any history book ever could. It opens with the bombing of Guatemala City in 1954 when the hero, Max, is a small child. In a swiftly moving narrative, Max journeys twoard adulthood, searching for his identitty, for his father, and along the way, for the real Guatemala and the possibility of a society founded on human decency, after the bombs.
