Glyphic is a novella in verse about an American living in Mexico and Guatemala in the late 1990s when one country was recovering from years and years of civil war and the other had just suffered two massacres of the indigenous Mayan population. The novella examines time, reality, and loyalty as the main character moves through beautiful places and relationships and finds out who he is and how the world works behind the scenes. It is a tale of catharsis and rejuvenation in which he must decide either to fight the revolution or marry the fiancee.From the Author:
The Mayan World is an incredible part of our civilization. For some reason, most of us don't know much about it. I hope that this book shares a little bit about what's going on in Latin America. Big business is killing some beautiful and very old cultures. It seems that this has been going on for a long time and is not about to end anytime soon until we become more aware. That's part of this book. The other part is just an adventurous travelogue into one of the most romantic, sexiest parts of the world. Throw is the psychedelics of Maria Sabina and the subculture of Oaxaca and you have Glyphic. It may be hard to decipher but it's a tale that needed to be told.
