Francisco Goldman won accolades and international recognition with his extraordinary first novel, The Long Night of White Chickens, the winner of the Sue Kaufman Prize for First Fiction from the American Academy of Arts and Letters and a finalist for the PEN/Faulkner Award. A best-selling paper-back for the Atlantic Monthly Press, it is now available for the first time in a Grove Press trade paperback edition.
The Long Night of White Chickens is a novel truly born of two worlds, staging with brilliant wit and immense humanity the intimate lives of Latin America and the United States. It is the story of Roger Graetz, raised in a Boston suburb by an aristocratic Guatemalan mother, and his relationship with Flor de Mayo, the beautiful young Guatemalan orphan sent by his grandmother to live with his family as a maid. When, years later in the 1980s, Flor is murdered in Guatemala while running an orphanage, Roger returns to uncover the truth of her death. There he is reunited with Luis Moya, a childhood friend, and together they venture on a quest to chronicle Flor's life story that will prove to have unexpected, and unforgettable, repercussions.
