Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Humorous and undeniably original, this witty satire of religion and morality centers around a small town in Colombia that boasts two especially interesting residents: the idiot sons of the town priest's illegitimate daughter, Marcianita, who have been blessed with super sexual potency. Their ability to "cure" the ailing brings pilgrims to the town—as well as the media and several new business ventures. A critique of religious and social repression that delights readers with its bizarre twists and one-of-a-kind characters, this book is a stunning selection from a talented but underappreciated Latin American author.
