Once again incorporating his vast knowledge of Mayan and Guatemalan folklore, Miguel Asturias imbues nine bold short stories and a portico with aspects of Guatemalan history and mythology, delving into poetically depicted natural dreamscapes. In Mirror of Lida Sal, Asturias fabricates an exquisitely detailed Guatemala lost to its own people, a people who maintain the steady hope for the future of their land.
