Our Private Life

Pedro Miguel Rozo

Translated by Simon Scardifield
PaperBack (11 Feb 2011)

"This isn't a village. We've got the largest shopping centre in the area. Now there's somewhere people can go to watch movies, have something to eat, spend money to make sense of their lives."

When a rumour spreads like wildfire through a Colombian village, a respectable family start to wither in the heat. As long-buried secrets begin to surface, their efforts to discern truth from slander become fused with a desire for justice. A new black comedy of twisted morality set in modern Colombia.

"Dark, deranged and occasionally hilarious… presented here in a zesty translation by Simon Scardifield. Our Private Life questions the very idea of privacy. It shows a family’s careful respectability being eroded by gossip… and the nightmarish effects of rumour." – Henry Hitchings, Evening Standard

"Excellent moments of pitch-black humour…" – Siobhan Murphy, Metro
