Product Overview

The extraordinary new novel from the winner of the: 2004 Lannan Literary Fellowship 2005 PEN USA Literary Award for Fiction 2006 Whiting Writers? Award
?A new work of obsession, tragedy, and the unpredictable trajectories of the heart.?(Cristina Garcia, author of "Dreaming in Cuban")
A powerful testament about the far-reaching effects of political brutality and lost love, "Draining the Sea" sifts through the incongruities of history and memory, unfurling inside the mind of a man who spends his days driving the streets of Los Angeles, racked by visions of the Guatemalan Civil War and, in particular, of Marta, a beautiful young prostitute who died violently in it?a tragedy in which he himself may have played a role.
