Gringo is a unique and insightful novel that introduces the reader to one of Latin America’s largest cities. Readers are surprised by its masterful prose and entertaining twists. Zach Steven, the main character, arrives in Peru from Massachusetts with the hopes of living a carefree lifestyle, to drink, dance and indulge in willing bodies without a care in the world. But love has a funny way of turning one’s fate. His love for Lima-born Clara and their decision to start a family turn his life upside down. Suddenly he is confronted with the Herculean task of providing for a family outside the safe confines of his suburban roots, enmeshed in the tangle of Peru’s burgeoning but merciless economy.
