'Monumental, funny, potent, and fresh' Carlos Fonseca, author of Natural History

Antonio is living a double life - and doing a pretty good job of it. By day he's Antonio, mild-mannered database analyst, recent divorce and father of two. In private, however, he spends hours on seedy pick-up websites or combing fiction and film for the solutions to his problems.

And then, Antonio's sister goes missing.

Her disappearance forces Antonio to confront not only his own troubled past, but his mother's decision to leave Colombia with two young children in tow, his ex-wife's obsessive, unhappy relationship with her homeland and, ultimately, the reason for his sister's despair.

Propulsive and freewheeling, bold and hilarious, Mauro Javier Cardenas' second novel is a daring examination of identity in a world that seems determined to fragment us.
