SciFi: Old Latin American Man becomes Space Trooper
Join LibraryThing to post.
I read this book around 1985, plus or minus 5 years.
An old Latin American man meets an anorexic young woman in a marketplace and finds himself fighting in a military troop that goes off earth but somehow is concerned with fighting against a leader for whom he has what others think is an unsubstantiated hatred. It turns out the young woman took over his mind. Memories of a 3 yr old granddaughter prove helpful in restoring him.
I remember so much more from this book than from 90% of what I read, but not the title or author!
