The blight of governmental strife and social injustice color the richly textured short story collection depicting the passion and politics of civil war in El Salvador. The turmoil, intrigue and suffering have been captured and universalized in these beautifully wrought tales told from the perspective of the common man caught up in a confusing maelstrom. Not journalistic reportage but magic realism at its best, the stories in Arbol de la vida are deceptively simple, linear and fresh.
