About this title


New York reporter Elizabeth Guerrera gets her big break in Central America, but her personal involvement with General Valdez, head of the new junta, destroys her innocence when he does not live up to his promises

About the Author:

Publishers Weekly called A Year of Favor, Julia MacDonnell’s first novel, a ‘compelling debut.’ Kirkus Reviews said it was ‘powerful first fiction...a convincing evocation of life in a Central American country—and a compelling portrait of a gutsy, post-feminist heroine.’ MacDonnell’s second novel, Mimi Malloy by Herself, will be published by Picador in April 2014. Her stories have appeared in North Dakota Quarterly, The Larcom Review, Paper Street, Happy, Many Mountains Moving and many other publications. Her story collection, Plight of the Piping Plover, currently under submission, was named a finalist in the 2012 Spokane Prize for Fiction. MacDonnell is the recipient of two fellowships from the N.J. State Council on the Arts, two Geraldine R. Dodge fellowships, a Pulitzer Traveling Fellowship, and other prizes for her journalism and fiction. She is the nonfiction editor of Philadelphia Stories, and a tenured professor at Rowan University.
