This vivid exposé of corruption and political tyranny in the Dominican Republic rang so true to the reality that the President of that country went on television to denounce the book. They Forged the Signature of God went on to become the best-selling book in the history of the Dominican Republic. 

Sención's novel follows the lives of three seminary students who suffer from church-state oppression. The book also gives a chilling portrai of Dr. Ramos, a sinister autocrat, who manages to survive six terms as president of his country through manipulation and tyranny. This finely textured novel gives a vivid picture of the internal politics of the Dominican Republic.

Review:

They Forged the Signature of God is an enthralling, if somewhat uneven, fictionalized account of the recent and tumultuous history of the Dominican Republic. The story follows three seminary students trying to divine their proper paths in life amid a social climate marked by political repression and instability. Virato Senciòn delivers an exacting take on his country's recent political history, and his book has become a bestseller in Latin America. They Forged the Signature of God received the Dominican Republic's National Fiction Award when it was first published, only to have the prize withdrawn when the sting of Senciòn's criticism grew too irritating to the ruling class.

About the Author:

Viriato Sención was born in San Jose de Ocoa, Dominican Republic in 1941. He currently resides in New York City.
