Answer these questions: (1 Page)
1. In the opening scene, an immigrant landlord is kicking out two immigrants from his apartment building in LA. No one speaks English very well, yet English is the language they have in common. What does this scene tell us about translation and communication in a “global community”?
- We gradually get the background of both Antonio and the Sargent, and learn how the war in Guatemala shaped both of their lives. What do we learn?
This novel has as its main characters people who are “at home” in Guatemala but are making “a home” in LA. In moving back and forth between Guatemala and LA, the novel itself is “at home” in both locales. How does the writer enable his readers to imagine a world where Guatemala and LA are so intimately intertwined, “placing” us within each locale, but envisioning both locales in relation to one another?
