Like life itself, this fine novella, “The Iguana Speaks My Name,” is largely without plot, but because of that both place (the village of Panimache in Guatemala) and persons (the villagers) come to life without the restrictions of plot, without reader concern for “what will happen next.” Plot in so many stories by so many other authors pushes us relentlessly toward conclusion, much like going on a long journey and seeing only the well marked path, not noticing – as we do in Roberto Moulun’s stories – the woman in the cove, standing under falling water that “kissed her red nipples alive,” whose long black hair, as she twirled, “covered her like a silk fan.”
