About this title

Synopsis:

Five people, over a period of more than one hundred years, come to the ancient ruined city of Casas Grandes in search of people who have mysteriously disappeared

Review:

Organized in three sections, this novel by Albert J. Guerard uses Mexico's Tehuantepec isthmus as the setting for flights of magical realism merged with fact. Part I takes place in the late 18th century when a New Orleans socialite descends on the town of Santa Rosalia in search of a missing renegade general. Part II is set half a century later as a retired schoolteacher, who had met the socialite of the opening section, returns to Santa Rosalia, where he finds a strange group of expatriates, including a character modeled after the poet Mina Loy. The closing section unfolds in 1982 when a young historian visits Santa Rosalia to research a dissertation on the now-familiar New Orleans socialite. Guerard uses a broad brush and a huge, colorful cast to evoke more than a century's worth of larger-than-life history.
