Bolo is a champion stickfighter, tall, good-looking, the bravest of all the young men in Bonasse. When, time and time again, he sees his people humiliated by change and American troops, his instincts as a leader come to the fore. The stand he makes, however, takes bizarre and tragic forms.


?This is an energetic, very unusual, above all, enlightening novel; the author's best yet.?-The Financial Times
