About the Book

This is an extraordinary novel by one of the world's leading writers. A Latin American dictator's body is discovered in his enormous, crumbling palace. Revolutionaries burst in and find his rotting corpse in an anarchic tangle of past and present-a present already lost and decayed, a past of almost unimaginable richness in which the palace was crowded with the dictator's ministers, bodyguards and servants, who kept him precariously balanced in power, and also with a tribe of women and children. The atmosphere is dreamlike-even nightmarish-real, vibrant and sensually exact, and at the same time vague and almost unbelievable.
