A fast-paced, humorous, political novel focusing on a Jewish family in 1980s Guatemala.

"Life in the Damn Tropics is a witty book, ebullient in its observations about the human heart and mind, and the caprices of destiny. It is a sharply intelligent, passionately written novel by a writer who has much to say about that Life in the Damn Tropics something which the author knows welldasha book that is deserving of an appreciative readership
dashOscar Hijuelos, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Mambo Kings Play Songs of Love

"This is a sophisticated, often bitterly funny political-romance that made me think of Graham Greene. Through the eyes and voice of Unger's more or less assimilated Jewish narrator, Guatemala City in the 80sdasha place of family obligations and old friendships and mid-life love and lossdashis beautifully evoked. "
