Political cartoonist, Javier Mallarina is being honored for a long, brilliant, powerful career.  During a slide show presentation at an event that is celebrating his accomplishments, a young woman in the audience recognizes Mallarina’s home, knows she has been there, but is unable to remember anything else.  The next day she pays the cartoonist a visit, and he recalls the drama that she was involved in twenty-four years earlier.

Vasquez writes an easy to read yet complex novel that explores concepts of the past and the future as well as the positive and negative aspects of memory, power, and the written word.
