The imagery is consistent with the settings. The action in The Old Gringo is structured within a framing device; that is, the main part of the novel is "framed" by scenes of Harriet Winslow described in the present tense, sitting in her apartment in Washington and reflecting on events long past. Much of the narrative takes place in Mexico.
