After twelve years in exile, living and teaching in the safety of Montreal, Alma Alvarez has been persuaded to return to Luscano by an old friend who has invited her to give a lecture at his university, on the tragic Uruguayan poet Delmira Agustini, who had a cult-like following.
Alma knows how influential and dangerous poetry can be, once arrested herself, after publication of a poem that offended the military regime. She soon discovers that life in Luscano is still rife with secrecy and duplicity – even Flaco has a hidden agenda. Agustini’s work once saved Alma; now she must rely on the power of her own words.
