Product Description

This National Book Award nominee takes us to a not-so-fictional place, Tinieblas, where intrigue, violence, and military coups occur as often as fruits fall from the trees. Kiki, the son of a twice-ex-president, has inherited his father's thirst for power and the presidency. But to become president of Tinieblas takes a Machiavellian intelligence, for one must outwit not only political foes but the strong American interests. An insightful, furious, and funny depiction of twentieth-century Latin America, The Prince is an essential novel for readers of history and magical realism alike.

Praise for The Prince:

"The Prince got to me. I liked its swaggering adventuresomeness, its magnificent vanity, its almost comic sense of cruelty." —Christopher Lehmann–Haupt, The New York Times

"The most extraordinary novel." —Life

"Pynchon, Barth, Vonnegut, and Koster may be an acquired taste, but once the palate is trained, other American novelists can seem bland and pallid." —Los Angeles Times

"Koster's creation of Tinieblas is a remarkable achievement." —The New York Times Book Review


R. M. Koster is a journalist who has been published in the New Republic, Harper's, Quest, and Connoisseur, among others.
