    [synopsis] => Mona, a Peruvian writer based in California, presents a tough and sardonic exterior. She likes drugs and cigarettes, and when she learns that she is something of an anthropological curiosity-a woman writer of color treasured at her university for the flourish of rarefied diversity she brings-she pokes fun at American academic culture and its fixation on identity.

When she is nominated for "the most important literary award in Europe," Mona sees a chance to escape her downward spiral of sunlit substance abuse and erotic distraction, so she trades the temptations of California for a small, gray village in Sweden. Now she is stuck in the company of all her jet-lagged and mostly male competitors, arriving from Japan, France, Armenia, Iran, and Colombia. Isolated as they are, the writers do what writers do: exchange compliments, nurse envy, private resentments, stabbing rivals in the back, and hop in bed together. All the while, Mona keeps stumbling across the mysterious traces of violence she cannot explain.

As her adventures in Scandinavia unfold, Mona finds that she has not so much escaped her demons as locked herself up with them in the middle of nowhere.
