About this title

Synopsis:

A dozen years ago I read Cuentos de Cima y Sima in Spanish I was struck by the imagery lyricism and natural dialogue and began a translation to English Later while teaching at the American School in El Salvador I became acquainted with the author s grandson We agreed that because Central American literature is almost unknown in the United States it would be good to publish the Tales of Heights and Depths in English Humberto Ibarra a Salvadoran journalist who was exiled to Guatemala later became the ambassador to Chile and to Argentina He also wrote a book of poetry as well as a novel that portrays Zacatecoluca his hometown and deals with social justice Guatemala is a land of enchantment so it is not surprising to find zombies witchcraft and magic amid the Mayan ruins I have chosen a pen name for my role as translator Pax is my mother s maiden name and seems to blend well with short Mayan surnames like Yoc and Tul Jose Pax
