A journey into the heart of Mexico, with all its conflicting cultures and its distinctive clash of the old and the new. The unifying themes of the book and Mexico's universal loves and hates, its underlying religious faith and superstition, its obsession with death and disguise, feelings of isolation and community, sense of outrage and betryal is its passion for fantasy, idolatry and fiesta, and its love of the land.
