Salman Rushdie: The Jaguar Smile

(c) 1987; New York: Viking; ISBN: 0670817570

The Jaguar Smile is at once a diary of Rushdie’s visit to Nicaragua in 1986 and a testament of a revolution led by warrior-poets. Rushdie mixes with this account a personal analysis of the political dialectic in central America, maintaining his characteristic unforgiving stance through most of the book.
