Summary
Growing up in 1930's Mexico, American Harrison Shepherd quickly learns that his mother is more concerned with social aspirations than his well-being. Due to a tumultuous stint at a Virginia military school and the fact that his mother has a knack for selecting men who fall on the losing side of Mexico's political battles, Harrison takes a withdrawn approach to adulthood. After his mother's repute places him in danger, Harrison ventures back to America, which is in the midst of World War II
Summary
Harrison William Shepherd, a highly observant writer, is caught between two worlds--in Mexico, working for communists Diego Rivera, Frida Kahlo and Leon Trotsky, and later in America, where he is caught up in the patriotism of World War II
