Product description

Review

"A glorious travel book - Edward Marriot" (The Sunday Times)

"[Gimlette's] account is so rich in anecdotes, so suffused in color and dialect that we are left with a sense of having somehow inhaled all this Paraguayan history and then experienced it through a nightmare or a dream. Gimlette has given us a cast of characters as vivid as any by Dickens or Waugh" (New York Times)

"Full of surprises, this is a riveting read" (Sunday Telegraph)

"Off the wall title, and a great off centre enjoyment, with a smashing, entertaining piece of writing..." (Manchester Evening News)

"John Gimlette's extraordinary book, part history, part travelogue, is so vivid that nobody reading it is ever likely to forget the country. - Max Davidson" (Daily Telegraph)

Book Description

In this uniquely written travel book, Daily Telegraph writer John Gimlette takes the reader on a rollercoaster journey through the tumultuous past, and extraordinarily colourful present, of Paraguay.
