Anthony Winkler, God Carlos

Set in 1520, a generation after Columbus’s voyages and a time when the Spanish foothold in America was still slippery, God Carlos is the story of two protagonists: a bawdy Spanish sailor who stumbles into the Jamaican interior, and a grieving Arawak Indian in search of a God who can save his clan. Too literary to be historical fiction, and too historical to be literary fiction, God Carlos combines the best of both forms.
