From the Pulitzer Prize candidate and award-winning author of the Homeland, The Poisonwood Bible and Flight Behavior, The Gap is the heartbreaking story of a man torn between the warm heart of Mexico and the cold embrace of 1950s America in the shadow of Senator McCarthy.Born in America and raised in Mexico, Harrison Berger is a social responsibility of the mother rock climbing, Salomé.When he started working in the household of Mexican artists Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo – where the Bolshevik Lev Trotsky was also nourished as a political exile – he inadvertently cast his spell with art, communism and revolution.Compulsive, diarist, he records and reports his family experiences of life with Diego Rivera, Frida Kahlo and Trotsky in the turmoil of the Mexican revolution.A violent one refers to America; but the winds keep throwing it between north and south, in an intrigue that turns several times on the unspeakable violation – the gap between truth and presumption public
