In his third novel to be translated into English, Colombian novelist Juan Gabriel Vasquez confirms what we fans of his early work had suspected from the beginning : that he is a master of showing us how the political past, in this case the drug trafficking in the 80's and 90's in his native country, continue to influence and inform the personal present. This is a moving tale about the the balance between choice and fate and how memory and the way we tell the tales of the past can influence how we live.
