Read full description of the books:
Maybe it is just the right book at the right time, but I think there is something pretty special about the narrative of Tobar's "Tattooed Soldier" this is definitely the best fiction I read this year.
Following the lives of two opposing and intertwined Guatemalans in Los Angeles, this story was woven in such a way that characters (who are well-developed) still manage to get in line with a really engaging telling of the shared drama in the main characters' lives.
It's as much an insight into the lives of marginalized immigrant communities in Los Angeles, as it is about the smaller interpersonal issues of integrity, pride, and belonging. Foregrounding the unseen lives of those who inhabited LA in the Rodney King Riots era and right-wing nationalist cleansing of indigenous populations in Guatemala in the preceding decade.
Really well crafted.
