Arturo Mantecón, translator and bibliophile, chances upon a strange leather-bound book found in a vast private library. Chaotic poetry. Grotesque images. But who, exactly, is the author? Is it José Primitivo Charlevoix, or someone else? Mantecón searches for clues within the curious text itself, and the clues he finds lead him to the unlikely locations of Quebec and Ontario.
Poetry. Fiction. Latino/Latina Studies. Hybrid.
