Three actors—a failed playwright, a voluptuous starlet, and a German star at the end of his career—are abandoned in an ancient Mayan temple when a war suddenly rages around them. Or are they in Vietnam? Or a stage set in Hollywood? Napalm incinerates the hillsides, soldiers swarm through the jungle, and the actors struggle to survive amid violence both real and unreal...
Maya, written while I roamed through Mexico in 1990, was my seventh novel and the first to be published.
"Maya is a disturbing collage of mixed visions with psychedelic qualities.....Stuefloten sees America with a jaundiced eye that skews reality and perceives normalcy as frightening...The disjointed plot and script-like writing style takes place on several levels, revealing the author's exceptional powers of description and observation."
—Small Press Magazine
Maya was also published as a part of Mexico Trilogy.
