Fiction. Latino/Latina Studies. Part political exposé, part literary tour-de-force, SINCHI is a gory exploration of one of the darkest periods in Peru's history. Bartoli skilfully sews Peru's mythological history in with the atrocities of the 1980-1993 guerrilla war between American-funded paramilitaries and the insurgent Sendero Luminoso. Weaving an ambitious historical thread that ties together subjugators and their victims across centuries, Bartoli's narration dances between black humour and ferocious accusation as he relates his own account of a civilisation-shattering violence kept hidden from the public eye. SINCHI is a cry of rage and a damning indictment of power and its abuse.
