The mysterious theme of Jose Yglesias' second novel is a large Cuban-American clan that first plants its roots in Florida in the year 1890. As the narrator, Pini, looks back over the past century's history, he turns for an accounting of "the truth" to a network of uncles, aunts, and cousins whose deeply felt blood ties kept the family going through the trials of social upheaval, the Great Depression, and revolution.
