Recenzii

"The male characters in Manrique’s latest [novel] cross-dress as easily as they cross borders to assume European and American lives without fully eliminating the vestiges of their Colombian backgrounds. A young writer who has left a city in Colombia to seek his fortune in Madrid, Barcelona, and New York, Santiago Martinez often finds himself wistful for his hometown, which he remembers as a lush tropical, peaceful paradise instead of the drug-ridden and politically claustrophobic society it is. . . . Much more than the semi-autobiographical story the novel claims to be, this boisterous and tragic work addresses issues of solitude, exile, and self-discovery with generous feeling and honest emotion."—Publishers Weekly
