Through its examination of the relationship between a single immigrant mother and her son, In the Name of the Son offers a perspective on the lives of Hispanic American migrants, as well as the social, political and economic upheavals that marked the U.S. and Mexico at the beginning of the 21st Century. Julieta Sanchez lives with her son in Manhattan's upper west side. As her son grows up, he naturally becomes curious about his origins, and about the father he never knew. His quest to discover his true identity will take him to Mexico City and to Paris, back to New York, and finally to the tropical rainforests of southeastern Mexico. The story narrates the internal conflict of a young man trying to ascertain the identity of his father, who will ultimately uncover the unexpectedly violent and disturbing truth of his origins. His search leads him into a labyrinth full of mirrors, where he finds his own reflection changing at every step. Mario Huacuja delivers a fast-paced novel with a cinematic flavor, offering unexpected twists in every scene. It is perhaps no accident that one of the characters turns out to be the silver screen legend himself, Robert De Niro. Mario Huacuja is a Mexican writer with four published novels to his credit: Temblores, about the war that rocked Central America in the seventies and eighties; Las Dos Orillas del Rio, tracing the historical divide that separates the U.S. and Mexico; La Resureccion De La Santa Maria, based on the sea voyage the author himself took in an old caravel from Acapulco to Japan, and El Viaje Mas Largo, a fictional account of Magellan's first voyage around the world. Huacuja has also worked as a university professor, television and radio script writer, and a communications expert in various government departments
