"En este mundo matraca" is a novel that takes place in Amatitlán, spanning three different generations, and centering around the family ties that bind people together. The work explores Guatemala's indigenous roots, and the European and Spanish traditions that have also left their marks. Most of all, it explores the thing modern life has almost forgotten: laughter. Written by Franz Galich, a Guatemalan writer and literature professor.
