Francisco Goldman: Latin correspondent and novelist
In his newest novel, “Just Say Her Name,’’ Francisco Goldman recounts the true heartbreak of his young wife’s death. Goldman grew up in Needham, but decamped for his mother’s home country of Guatemala in the 1980s, where he covered Central America’s various wars for The New Yorker. Now he splits his time between New York City and Mexico City.
