Review:

"Majestic...Superb...A stunning portrait of hte archetype, the pathological fascist tyrant."--" New York Times Book Review"""The Autumn of the Patriarch" mines one of the darkest veins in Latin American political history. The central character is a composite of Trujillos, Batistas and Somozas. His is a genius at the barren politics of survival, capable and guilty of the most savage brutality, a lonely monster who shuffles through his palace every night, checking the locks, looking for assassins, lighting a lantern for a quick exit." --" America"
