Publisher's Summary

Lily Tuck is a National Book Award winner and PEN/Faulkner Award finalist who is praised by The San Francisco Chronicle for her “knack for shaving a scene to its essence.” Set in the late 19th century, The News from Paraguay traces the colorful, ill-fated romance between an Irish courtesan and the flamboyant, self-indulgent man who becomes dictator of Paraguay. A mesmerizing blend of fact and fiction, it is reminiscent of works by Gabriel Garcia Márquez.
