Santa Evita by Tomas Elroy Martinez

Santa Evita

Tomas Elroy Martinez

This is not an easy read. The style varies - sometimes surreal then strictly documentary with frequent use of flashbacks. Every time I got ready to give up though, my attention was grabbed and held again. Lots of relevance for a post-Diana Britain as an added ingredient

Extract

'Evita doesn't have a halo' I said. 'You can't make me swallow that.' 'Yes she does we all saw it.'
