In the years ahead of the Mexican Revolution, Mexico is governed by means of a tiny elite that apes ecu tradition, grows wealthy from overseas funding, and prizes racial purity. nearly all of Mexicans, who're local or of combined local and Spanish blood, are politically powerless and slowly ravenous to dying. Presiding over this corrupt process is Don Porfirio Díaz, the ruthless and inscrutable president of the Republic.

            by contrast backdrop, The urban of Palaces opens in a Mexico urban penal complex with the assembly of Miguel Sarmiento and Alicia Gavilán. Miguel is a principled younger health professional, only in the near past back from Europe yet wracked by means of guilt for against the law he devoted as a scientific scholar ten years past. Alicia is the spinster daughter of an aristocratic kin. Disfigured through smallpox, she has dedicated herself to operating with the city’s destitute. This not likely pair—he a scientist and atheist and she or he a devoted Christian—will marry. via their eyes and the eyes in their younger son, José, readers keep on with the cave in of the previous order and its bloody aftermath.

            The urban of Palaces is a sweeping novel of interwoven lives: Miguel and Alicia; José, a boy as appealing and lonely as a toddler in a fairy story; the idealistic Francisco Madero, who overthrows Díaz yet is however destroyed by means of the tyrant’s political process; and Miguel’s cousin Luis, refrained from as a “sodomite.” A glittering mosaic of the colonial earlier and the wealth of the fashionable age, The urban of Palaces is a narrative of religion and cause, cathedrals and hovels, barefoot highway proprietors and frock-coated businessmen, grand opera and silent movie, presidents and peasants, the dwelling and the dead.
