With the same ebullient storytelling, luxuriant prose, and irrepressible eroticism he brought to The War of Don Emmanuel s Nether Parts and SeApor Vivo and the Coca Lord, Louis de BerniAures 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 Guzman 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 more crucial than the act of love. Part epic, part farce, The Troublesome Offspring of Cardinal Guzman confirms de BerniAures's reputation as England's answer to Gabriel GarcAsa MAirquez.the wine for communion, as I have always had doubts about having to use pisco and aguardiente.a€ In the tenebrious light of the taper and of the stove, ConcepciA³n showed Don Balsal how to make arepas with maize flour, eggs, and dende oil.
