From the bestselling author of "Corelli's Mandolin" and "The War of Don Emmanuel's Nether Parts" comes an iridescent gem of storytelling that is "by turns wacky, mystical, and altogether compelling" ("Washington Post"). A young philosophy professor is the only citizen in his country who dares to renounce his country's cocaine mafia. This makes him the object of several assassination attempts and a national hero. His popularity, however, does not extend to the people he loves.
