An anthropologist and his alienated brother reunite in a Mexico torn apart by earthquakes and revolution to reenact an ancient Mayan myth of the end of the world in this surrealistic fantasy by the author of Frontera. Shiner captures the complexities of both modern and ancient reality in a story that should appeal to general as well as fantasy audiences.
