What to expect
A Flag for Sunrise is a novel of Americans drawn into the maelstrom of Tecan, a small Central American country on the brink of revolution. At a mission on the coast a priest is lapsing into alcoholic mysticism, while a young American nun is veering towards commitment to the cause. In a bar in Brooklyn, Frank Holliwell is lunching with an old CIA friend who is begging for a favor. On the Tex–Mex border, Pablo, a Coast Guard deserter, loco on speed, is about to take a job carrying mysterious contraband to Tecan. As these lives converge, as this small, crowded world erupts, the novel builds to an electrifying climax.
“Stone, who has a strong imaginative grip on the contemporary American scene and writes like an angel—a fallen, hard driving angel—is also a marvelous storyteller.”New York Review of Books
Stone’s best and most celebrated novel to date…this novel is
one intense scene after another…complex plot…a voyage so compelling that listeners may
find themselves lost for hours at a time.”
