  • With the same ebullient storytelling, luxuriant prose, and irrepressible eroticism he brought to The War of Don Emmanuel s Nether Parts and Se or Vivo and the Coca Lord, Louis de Berni res continues his chronicle of Cochadebajo, the Andean village where macho philosophers, defrocked priests, and reformed though hardly inactive prostitutes cohabit in cheerful anarchy ButWith the same ebullient storytelling, luxuriant prose, and irrepressible eroticism he brought to The War of Don Emmanuel s Nether Parts and Se or Vivo and the Coca Lord, Louis de Berni res continues his chronicle of Cochadebajo, the Andean village where macho philosophers, defrocked priests, and reformed though hardly inactive prostitutes cohabit in cheerful anarchy But this unruly utopia is imperiled when the demon harried Cardinal Guzm n decides to inaugurate a new Inquisition, with Cochadebajo as its ultimate target On his side, the Cardinal has an army of fanatics who are all too willing to destroy bodies in order to save souls The Cochadebajeros have precious little ammunition, unless you count chef Dolores s incendiary Chicken of a True Man, and a civil defense that deems nothing crucial than the act of love Part epic, part farce, The Troublesome Offspring of Cardinal Guzm n confirms de Berni res s reputation as England s answer to Gabriel Garc a M rquez.
