NPR Summary

In The Lady Matador's Hotel, a novel just over 200 pages, Cristina Garcia packs together a group of characters who could populate an epic. There's a Japanese-Mexican-American female bullfighter visiting an unnamed Central American capital for a competition. There are also vengeful left-wing guerrillas, military men, businessmen and lawyers, waiters and poets and pregnant mistresses.
