Life of a Dictator Unveiled in a Satirical Mock Epic
Author Horacio Hernández showcased his latest novel in the 2016 Tucson Festival of Books.
He compares their clashing beliefs and values to the conflict between good and evil, which ultimately ends in either destruction or rebirth.
The 2016 Tucson Festival of Books took a massive number of participants last March 12 to 13 to the University of Arizona campus. One of which is Horacio A. Hernández’s latest novel, The Incredible Wedding of a Dictator.
The book opens with two men discussing the manuscripts of a fictional community, named Dolorosa Village, and its people. Eventually, they begin to talk about the head of the community, an extravagant and abominable dictator. The origins of the dictator are subsequently revealed by the two men. His humble beginnings are exposed, as well as his masterful manipulations and oppressive operations to become Dolorosa’s leader.
Hernández describes in parallel the dictator’s despotic reign and a hero’s struggles to usurp the tyrant and save Dolorosa. He compares their clashing beliefs and values to the conflict between good and evil, which ultimately ends in either destruction or rebirth.
The Incredible Wedding of a Dictator brings readers to a world with turbulent history and cut-throat politics.
