Description


Esteban, a Nicaraguan ex-Sandinista, is taken along with fourteen other men from Central America with the promise of working aboard a cargo ship. However, the Urus is rusty and abandoned on the Brooklyn dock. The crew lives in terrible conditions for months. When Esteban leaves the ship, and prowls the neighborhoods of Brooklyn in search of food and relief, it presents a fascinating image of the United States, seen through unsophisticated eyes.
 
Esteban, un nicaragüense exguerrillero sandinista, es llevado, junto con otros catorce hombres, desde América central con la promesa de trabajar a bordo de un buque de carga. Sin embargo, el Urus es un oxidado armatoste abandonado en un aislado muelle de Brooklyn. La tripulación vive meses en condiciones terribles: atrapados, sucios, enfermos y humillados; víctimas de su propia pobreza y la trapacería de los demás. Cuando Esteban abandona el barco y merodea los barrios de Brooklyn en busca de alimento y socorro, se presenta una imagen fascinante de Estados Unidos, vista a través de unos ojos poco sofisticados.
