In a remote river town deep in the Ecuadoran jungle, Antonio José Bolívar seeks refuge in amorous novels, the kind with maximum heartache. The village is so small the dentist comes only twice a year, to pull teeth and bring books to the old man. This is a story of the jungle, green hell and Eden; of the Shuar Indians, who know how to live in harmony with it. But tourists and opportunists are making inroads into the area, and the balance of nature is making a dangerous shift. Nature, out of balance, becomes vengeful and violent. This wonderful novel hovers effortlessly between magic realism and historical fiction. Sepulveda crafts an amazonian tale showcasing a man’s deep understanding of the jungle and his uneasy coexistence with it. Filled with lush prose and caricaturesque characters, the plot moves along swiftly.
