BLURBS #It's a wonderful piece of work! Compelling, complex, celar. The way [Streatfeild] involved [himself] is brilliant. A pacifist, radical, robust fop of a guy without a gun enters into the dark world of Colombia to have tea with the Ochoas while the DEA boys are cleaning their Glocks. A preservation of innocence. Congratulations. Fuck it!
