"Stirring and original . . . It gives us a picture of the country in bright, patchwork colors unavailable in your usual journalistic dispatches." -The New York Times "A vivid and probing introduction for perplexed outsiders trying to make sense of Nicaraguan dilemmas." -Newsday "Extraordinary . . . a masterpiece of sympathetic yet critical reporting graced with [Rushdie's] marvelous wit, quietly assertive style, odd and yet always revealing experiences." -Edward W.
