Manuela Beltrán, a woman haunted by a troubled childhood she tries to escape through books and poetry; Tertuliano, an Argentine preacher who claims to be the Pope's son, ready to resort to extreme methods to create a harmonious society; Ferdinand Palacios, a Colombian priest with a dark paramilitary past now confronted with his guilt; Rimbaud, the precocious, brilliant poet whose life was incessant exploration, and Juana and the consul, united by an ill-defined relationship who both hurt and need each other, are all characters in this rich choral novel, the portrait of a hostile, turbulent world where the only possible relief can be found in travel, voyages and determined exploration.
"Gamboa's talent at cultivating intrigue and the extravagant energy of his stories make him compulsive reading."
Times Literary Supplement
"Gamboa's writing is reminiscent of Roberto Bolaño with its masterful handling of mystery, the complexity of the literary references and his raw vision of sex, drugs and violence."
