9789585835405: Colombia a Comedy of Errors

Colombia a comedy of errors tells the story of all forty-eight million Colombians, examining the country's history, people, culture, colombianomics and justice. It is a funny, full-colour book that became a bestseller in Colombia in the first month of its release. The book was written by British journalist Victoria Kellaway and Brit-Colombian artist and writer Sergio J. Lievano and reveals the secrets behind a nation that has drama and comedy seeped into its bloodstream. The pair study the country with an eye for detail that will surprise everyone, from the most knowledgeable reader to those who don't have a clue about the country.

This lively, humour-filled book has a serious heart and makes for an ideal gift or travel companion. It contains more than 160 illustrations, caricaturing famous faces (including Shakira, Bolivar, Botero and Uribe) as well as all those ordinary Colombians fighting to survive their country's daily contradictions. Colombia a comedy of errors is an inspiring journey into the very depths of the Colombian gene and what it means for Colombians everywhere.
