A Stranger in Central America

by Edward R. F. Sheehan (Houghton Mifflin: $19.95; 362 pp.) “A brilliant if eccentric book--truly I will never read another headline about Central America without recalling Sheehan’s dreamlike images of beggar and whore, jungle fighter and privileged revolutionary, torture chamber and cathedral."--Jonathan Kirsch
