This is Mel Vil's first poetry anthology. Based in his travels in South America, it focuses mainly on the time he spent in Buenos Aires during the economic crisis that followed the political upheaval of 2001. The collection forms a chronology of events that led him to take the road to Bolivia, a trip which he actually made many times, and the Andean town of Tupiza. The third-section of the book comprises of a single epic poem that documents his experimentation with legal highs and sheds yet further light on the chapter of his life staged in the capital city of Argentina.

Take a ride through the gritty streets of the underworld and stand alongside low-ranking drug dealers as they pedal their wares to the ever dwindling middle class porteños and the ever burgeoning European backpacking tourists.
