A challenging epic chronicling the life of Harrison Shephard. Crossing between his mother's homeland of Mexico, and his absent father's homeland of the United States, Harrison finds himself in the company of the likes of historical figures Diego Rivera, Frida Kahlo and Leon Trotsky. This is a lengthy book comprised of diary entries, newspaper articles and letters. The book is multi-layer and its slow, langorous pace may prove difficult for some readers.
