This rambunctious first novel by the author of the bestselling Corelli's Mandolin is set in an impoverished, violent, yet ravishingly beautiful country somewhere in South America. When the haughty Dona Constanza decides to divert a river to fill her swimming pool, the consequences are at once tragic, heroic, and outrageously funny. "Walks a precarious edge between slapstick and pathos, never once losing its balance."--Washington Post Book World.

Baker & Taylor
When the arrogant Dona Constanza diverts a river to fill her swimming pool, a full-blown war erupts between local peasants, who need the water to irrigate their crops and are led by the dissolute Don Emmanuel, and brutal soldiers. Reprint. 35,000 first printing.
