An extravagant, tragicomic novel that takes the reader into the world of Latino machos and cha-cha divas of Santiago's gay underground, full of dreamers and screamers looking for salvation abroad. It's the story of a Chilean drag queen, who makes it out of Santiago but maintains connections to his starry network of machos and maricones in Chile, Cuba and the US. Here is a life full of sequins and disco, and a plague both debilitating and liberating. Full of colour and verve, Flesh Wounds reads like a gay Latino version of Valley of the Dolls.
