 After the Bombs

A funhouse mirror of richly inventive and farcical black comedy    After the Bombs
by Arturo Arias

Translated by Asa Zatz

After the Bombs is a sort of bildungsroman run riot. Arias mixes stream of consciousness, lyrical outbursts, Marx Brothers antics, a nuanced, poetic sense of rhythm in his sentence construction, funky gossip, and myth; all with a fine sense of theatricality.”
-- Voice Literary Supplement

After the Bombs is a coming of age story that holds a mirror up to the modern history of Guatemala -- a funhouse mirror of richly inventive and farcical black comedy which provides a better description of life in that country than any history book ever could.
