"Manuela Beltrán, a poet haunted by a troubled childhood, is bent on revenge for the wrongs she suffered at the hands of her mother's lover. Her vendetta will draw together a cast of enigmatic characters, the inhabitants of Gamboa's 'dark valley.' There is Tertullian, an Argentine who claims to be the Pope's son, ready to consort to extreme methods to create a harmonious society. There is Ferdinand Palacios, a Colombian priest with a dark paramilitary past now confronted with his guilt. Then there are Juana and 'the consul, ' united in a complex relationship based on desire, need, and pain. Finally, there's Arthur Rimbaud, the precocious, brilliant poet whose dramatic life story plays a central role in this kaleidoscopic tale"--Taken from inner cover

Relato magnífico que tiene como escenario el Pekín del siglo XXI, las complejas relaciones entre China y Occidente, los avatares de dos viajeros que se reúnen a charlar y a beber por las noches en el bar del Hotel Pekín, mientras el mundo se transforma, así como los temores y la cautela de un rico empresario chino con la modernidad y los cambios violentos. Un colombiano, Francisco Munévar, renuncia sin aflicción a su país, su lengua y su identidad para convertirse en Frank Michalski, el "formador estrella" de una empresa de asistencia económica de Estados Unidos. Su desafío inmediato es China y para ello debe lograr que empresarios de alto nivel adopten formas de vida que se ajusten a la sociedad de consumo occidental. Pero uno de sus alumnos, el señor Li Qiang, hombre muy rico y de vida austera, siembra la duda, pues defiende a ultranza las tradiciones de su país y le parece impensable renunciar a ellas. De otro lado, el periodista y escritor Cornelius F. Bordewich busca en Pekín una "historia ejemplar" que le permita escribir una buena crónica y confirmar una elevada teoría sobre los asuntos humanos. Tras amplios ventanales del Hotel Pekín, que domina la ciudad y vieron pasar revoluciones, destrucción, guerras y momentos de esplendor, esto y otros personajes intentarán influirse, darse alivio o simplemente beber un buen trago, en la siempre difícil tarea de comprender mejor el mundo

Gracias al Premio Internacional Rubén Bonifaz Nuño, en la categoría de ensayo, el filólogo narrador de estas páginas puede comprar su casa. Después de toda una vida de desearla, de observarla, de acercarse a sus paredes de piedra y ladrillo rojo para descifrar el enigma de su atracción, logra por fin saber la suya, y en el momento en el que franquea el umbral como su dueño, reconoce en ella su destino, su lugar en el mundo, el espacio a la medida de sus gustos y de su concepción de la vida. La instalación en esta vieja casona bogotana es un proceso paciente y, más que físico, reflexivo y memorístico. Pues cada rincón, la madera de los pisos, los baños, el comedor, la vajilla, la biblioteca, las habitaciones, la mansarda, incluso el barrio entrevisto por las ventanas, dan pie a un viaje fascinante por la vida del protagonista. Conocemos de su existencia itinerante en compañía de su tía, sus preocupaciones intelectuales, su amor por los libros y la lengua, sus ricas experiencias sexuales, su descubrimiento del lado oscuro de las ciudades, asi como las estelas de una remota tragedia que lo persigue desde la niñez
