Concepción and the Baby Brokers

And Other Stories Out of Guatemala

“A collection of stories about hard choices borne of desperation and the stark delineations between classes in Both Guatemala and the United States . . . . Clearman offers the same photographic eye and acute vision of Guatemalan culture throughout . . . . stories of strength and ethical quandary.”

“In these vivid and often heart-wrenching stories, Deborah Clearman illuminates Guatemalan culture at ground level, through characters whose struggles are palpable and moving. The collection couldn’t be more timely, or necessary.”
   —Julie Salamon, bestselling author of Wendy and the Lost Boys

“With deep respect for Guatemalan culture, particularly its variations in the beautiful, haunted town of Todos Santos, Deborah Clearman gives us these lovely, captivating stories out of Guatemala. Hers is a voice worth hearing; these are stories worth reading.”
   —Mark Brazaitis, Julia & Rodrigo and The River of Lost Voices: Stories from Guatemala
