From the back:

"Queen Cocaine takes place amid the violence that rules everyday life in Colombia. In the remote Pacific Coast jungle, a region of incessant rain that is ravaged by the drug trade and by civil war, the army, the guerrillas, and the drug trafficers spin a perilous web in which the three main characters who inhabit this novel are caught: Rat, a young Catalan woman who has recently arrived in Colombia; Aida, a local visionary who is adept at weaving spells, and Wilson, a writer and journalist persecuted because of his ideas and tormented by his own frustrations."

I can't say I enjoyed this book exactly as it was very bleak and desperate in many ways, but it offered an interesting glimpse into a world and into a region that I know very little about. Now I'd like to know whether these kinds communities really exist in Colombia.

Next off to soffitta1 as part of the Global fiction VBB.
