The first-person narrator of the novel is a writer having a creative crisis, working in the protection racket business to make ends meet. He barely speaks to his wife and kid and moves erratically through the pages of the novel, mostly high on cocaine. He gets sober only when it’s time for coital gymnastics with his lover Kika. But one of the extortion missions goes terribly wrong, and as he is a well-known writer, he fears to be recognized and arrested, he decides to flee to South America.
