Juan Gabriel Vásquez’s The Informers

I can’t remember if I mentioned this book earlier this summer but Publishers Weekly calls it “a crushing and beautifully tricky novel” – The Informers by Juan Gabriel Vasquez

“Vásquez tackles Colombia’s reality from a historical perspective. His novel, Los informantes (“The Informants”; Alfaguara, 2004), explores the world of exiled Nazis in Bogotá during the 1940s, recapturing a forgotten page of Colombia’s history” is now available in the States in English.
