Peter Robb has been visiting South America for prolonged periods for several decades.
This is the story of those encounters, a richly textured combination of food, corruption, art, history and character. Robb writes about slavery and the richly multicultural but disturbed and violent society it left in its wake. This is the story of tone of the most beautiful and seductive places on earth, told around an account of the rise of President Lula and the death of one of his opponents, an amazingly corrupt bagman known as "PC".
