Description
Amidst stagingsof guerilla warfare, rumors of killer bees and encroaching cartel activity,recovering ex-rocker, Tony Góngora, attempts to solve the mystery of anAmerican scuba-diver's murder. As he tries to piece together the events of thecrime, Tony uncovers his own bizarre and illuminating memories: of a fatherlesschildhood spent in the high-risk company of his eccentric friend and thehotel's manager; playing gigs with The Velvet Underground; joining a Japanesepop group. Against the backdrop of a deteriorating climate, a fast-erodingbeachfront, official corruption, cartel violence, and delusional Westernescapism, Tony and an international cast of hotel staffers make and breakalliances as the personal begins to echo the political, and artifice andreality start to blur. With his signature wit, originality, and dashes ofdazzling social theory, Villoro has created a biting satire of tourism and abrilliant analogy for Mexico's unique position in global politics.

Description
"The ex Rock Star Mario Müller discovers a visionary possibility in the Caribbean: the pleasures of fear. On the banks of an enormous coral reef The Pyramid is built, a resort that offers controlled dangers until a diver dies outside of the water. Reflecting upon the damages we choose to inflict upon ourselves in order to intensify life, this passionate novel describes a new ecology: climate change empties hotels and money laundering regenerates them like ghostly empires. Arrecife is also a story of friendship, love and redemption"--,Provided by publisher.
