About the Book

"Originally titled Dulce compañía (1995), novel set in Bogotá tells the first-person story of a woman journalist's involvement with the people of a poor barrio and the man they call an angel. Ironic, often humorous details of daily life in Colombia combine with passionate descriptions of madness, religion, and love. Excellent translation by Koch. Short author's biography; no other locating material"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58.
