page 53 of 296 of The Lost Steps

There’s (hardly) no dialog in this novel, it’s all 1st person observation.

Aside from a few minor descriptions Alejo doesn’t punch with the full weight of his writing until we first land in the city. Where before everything seemed moldy and confused, here in the heat everything comes to life. Our main character truly has no love left for anything modern.

Truth and lies will be the main themes explored here.
