About this title


A simple country doctor stumbles onto the hideous medical experiments being forcibly carried out on political prisoners at a secret jungle prison camp. Thus begins The Pelcari Project with a glimpse into the darkest side of the human condition. This landmark in the literature of Latin America, precisely translated by Paul Bowles, might best be compared with Franz Kafka’s The Penal Colony or H. G. Welles’ The Island of Dr. Moreau. A metaphor for the last thirty years of history in that part of the world, this work has been previously published to acclaim in Latin America and Europe.
