The book reads like a disjointed novel, none the less engaging for that form. Sergio Ramirez is not only a gifted novelist, but a former vice-president of Nicaragua and leading figure in the Sandinista Revolution. The timeline at the end provides some narrative structure to the author's detailed reminiscences of life on the Left.
