Michael Spurgeon - Let the Water Hold Me Down


Still reeling from the loss of his family in an accident that he feels responsible for causing, Hank Singer accepts an invitation to move to the isolated and beautiful state of Chiapas. There, in the streets and cafes of a colonial city nestled in the mountain forests, he settles into the semblance of a new life under the watchful eye of his best friend and former college roommate, César, the charismatic heir to one of Mexico’s most powerful families.  But when an army of impoverished Indians calling themselves Zapatistas emerges from the jungle to seize half the state, Hank finds himself a foreigner trapped in someone else’s war. Let the Water Hold Me Down ($16.00) reveals how the repercussions of the decisions he makes—and does not make—threaten to shatter both his friendship and the renewed life he has found in the Mexican highlands.

Michael Spurgeon was residing in San Cristóbal de las Casas at the time of the Zapatista Uprising. He and his wife and their two children currently live in Sacramento, California, where he is a tenured professor of English at American River College.
