Adios Muchachos Summary

Adios Muchachos by Daniel Chavarria

The beautiful Alicia hatches a plot to ensnare the wealthy foreign visitors to Castro?s Cuba through an elaborate scam involving a broken bicycle and her voluptuous charms. Taking choreographed spills in front of expensive foreign cars, Alicia squeezes the maximum sympathy and cash out of her clueless, sexually aroused, victims. Add to this mix the guile of her mother who is in on the scam, and the sky?s the limit for Alicia. However, when she attempts to trap Victor, a convicted bank robber masquerading as a Canadian businessman, they quickly realise each other?s nefarious motives and embark on a misadventure of sex, cross-dressing, kidnapping and death by olive. Adios Muchachos is an erotic, brutally funny romp through the underworld of post-revolutionary Cuba.

Adios Muchachos Reviews

?Picaresque, bawdy and highly original, this is the first of Chavarr?a?s novels to be translated into English... Steamy suspense, comic upsets instead of the traditional red herrings, and wonderfully sketched characters make this a brutal romp full of guilty delights? Guardian ?A joy to read. Chavarr?a?s cocky wit makes this a thoroughly enjoyable, viciously funny romp... the story is fast-paced and sexier than J-Lo?s hotpants. Chavarr?a?s writing is delightfully immoral, wickedly funny and, what the hell, Cuba really does make a great setting? Leeds Guide ?A madcap caper full of twisted sex, devious schemes and high-rolling hijinks? Publishers Weekly
