If You Love Me, Love Me Crooked

Cristian Alarcón

NON FICTION. PRH, 2010. 298 PAGES.

In a Buenos Aires slum, where five clans compete for control of the cocaine supply, a woman, Alcira, gets by on her wits and fearlessness. Cristian Alarcón delves into this underworld to tell a masterful tale of a never-ending war full of uneasy truces and fleeting victories in the voice of his protagonists, who never know what tomorrow might bring.

‘With If You Love Me, Love Me Crooked, Alarcón has produced a text as good as any of the boom fictions. He has a wonderful ear for subtle emphases, twists, dramatic pauses, and linguistic ingenuity and translates them into prose that is neither plain documentation nor literary window dressing.'
