AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Rupertino's home-feelings and his experience of friendship take place against a background of crisis in Australian political and industrial life, the invasive urbanisation of life in Colombia and the escalation of the power of dealers in drugs. In both places there are sharply actual pictures, tinged with affection and irony, of neighbourhood life.' (Publication summary)
