'Comrades' Marco Antonio Flores

Recommended Posts

This is in one sense a political satire, in another the story of the struggle of a nation to come to terms with itself and how that struggle affects five peoples lives. The author is a disillusioned Marxist, who was involved in the past with the revolution in Guatemala. When this novel appeared in 1976 it caused a furore in Guatemala, with most of the criticism coming from the revolutionary forces who saw him as a traitor to the cause.

 

Both the form and style of the novel are experimental, influences of Roberto Bola
