This collection of nine short stories by Juan Gabriel Vasquez shares themes of politics, violence, drug trafficking, and trauma--all elements that characterize contemporary Colombian history. The narration is shared by Sheldon Romero and Alfredo Huereca, whose performances are well paced and feature appropriate Spanish-language pronunciation that reflects the setting. While Romero's accent is North American, Huereca's delivery is characterized by a slight Spanish accent that gives further ambiance to these South American stories. Both Romero and Huereca deliver authentic performances that put a personal face on the lasting effects of geopolitical strife. S.E.G. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2022]
