    One Flawless Masterpiece As a reader you cannot ask for This dense and complex novel about the Trujillo Era in the D.R., like the best novels, from Gone with the Wind to The Human Stain, explains not only the steps leading to a total devastation, but, braver still, its equally about the eventual ...

    Render unto God what is God s and unto Caesar what is Caesar s.But what if Caesar thought he was God Well then, I guess he d want it all.And so goes the story of Rafael Trujillo, power hungry dictator of the Dominican Republic for a period of thirty years until his brutal assassination in 1961 Feast of the Goat tells the story of Trujillo s reign using a blend of fact and fiction, centered on the fateful day that would end an era Varied narratives blend together seemlessly to give us a portrait of three decades of corruption, violence and terror Chapters switch between the present day, when Urania Cabral returns to the Dominican Republic after thirty years of exile to visit her dying father who had at one time been one of Trujillo s most trusted allies Sitting at her father s deathbed, she remembers the horror of Trujillo s rule In alternating chapters, the story...
