But when the eldest son, Gustavo, a complex and errant rebel, receives a certified letter ordering him to report to basic training, he chooses to flee instead to Mexico.

Retreating back to the land of his grandfather--a foreign country to which he is no longer culturally connected--Gustavo sets into motion a series of events that will have catastrophic consequences on the fragile bonds holding the family together.Told with raw power and searing bluntness, and filled with important themes as immediate as todays headlines, Names on a Map is arguably the most important work to date of a major American literary artist.
