"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)
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.See all Product description

In less then 500 pages John Gimlette takes you in his own vivid and humorously manner through the 500 year history of this beautifully and for us westerners bizarre country.
Obliged reading if your going over there!
