Book recommendation (novel)

I would like to recommend 'The Lacuna' by Barbara Kingsolver.  A great read with an interesting backdrop of Mexican and U.S. history through the forties and fifties, including Trotsky's exile and murder in Mexico, through to McCarthyism and the Hollywood 'Reds under the Bed' paranoia.  It's also 'told' by an aspiring writer, which I found drew me in even more.
