9781598586367: A Light in Polanco

This is a novel of adventure and avarice in Mexico City's intriguing Polanco quarter. While filmmaker Isaac toys with the historical and philosophical events that led friends and neighbors to Mexico after escaping the Holocaust, his Jewish heritage and faith are put to the test. His best friend entices him to film odd goings-on in a remote mountain village, and gradually Isaac and his family are drawn unknowingly into a conspiracy of monumental evil. Peculiar events also envelope his son: as Isaac creates a motion picture about the essence of light, young Jacob takes up with an Indian shaman and discovers a new life in the spirit world. There appears to be no way out as they look for answers beyond good and evil, beyond the known, only to discover that there's more to Jacob's guru than meets the eye. When Isaac discovers the duplicity of the guru and his best friend leaving town under the cover of darkness, the essence of their dilemma is revealed. Yet Isaac and his family find renewed strength in the aura of Polanco. Peter Kelton writes fiction when he's between news jobs and has written professionally for some of the world's largest corporations and news organizations. Most of his work has been in New York. He grew up in Texas, served overseas in the US Army and returned to Europe as a foreign correspondent. He currently divides his time between his homes in Albuquerque and Mexico City. He's working on a novel set in the US and Europe entitled Reminds Me of My Innocence. He is the author of the popular surrealistic novel Splat! published to critical acclaim in 2005.
