Synopsis: He's fast. He's nervous. He's outrunning family and friends. Xavier Cuevas is on the treadmill in blind pursuit of the American Dream. Going nowhere. Going under. Xavier is having trouble keeping step with the frenetic, bicultural mambo he's caught up in.
Suarez's sparse, elegant prose lures us with a cool and witty portrayal of Xavier and Miami's Cuban personality. And, when this author beckons, the reader can't help but jump into the convertible for a rivetting ride as the novel races along in pastel-colored flashes toward a surprise ending.
From the Back Cover: Going Under, Virgil Suarez's fourth and most compelling novel, is the passionate portrayal of one man's dreams shattered in the promised land. Meet Xavier Cuevas - businessman, husband, father - spread thin between all his responsibilities and obligations, living an empty bumper to bumper existence of meaningless errands and the yearning for more. Blinded by greed as he wheels and deals in Miami, Xavier manages, most of all, to lose his own sense of identity, his cultural soul. His marriage falls apart, his children become estranged and Xavier can no longer attain any of his dreams. A nervous breakdown seems in the offing, and life and love will never be the same. This thoroughly Americanized Cuban suddenly seeks the help of a santera (a Cuban faith healer). Xavier's voyage back to his roots inevitably takes the reader to an arresting ending.
