Chambacu, Black SlumBook - 1989
A masterful translation of a powerful novel set amidst the misery of a mosquito-infested island near Cartagena where a single mother and her family are touched irrevocably by the war between the United States and Korea. Uneducated, indigent, and disunited, the protagonists represent the condition of a countless diaspora of blacks in the Caribbean, Latin America, and the Third World.
