description
3Lobo, the protagonist of this engrossing novel about life on the border between Mexico and the United States, has no education to speak of but possesses an amazing talent for converting any notable event into an epic ballad. When the local drug kingpin discovers him, Lobo becomes the kingdom s artist-in-residence. Through his songs, he captures life both within the court and outside of it, and though initially his compositions serve to glorify and popularize the cartel, they eventually play an integral part in its demise. With its lyrical and popular language, Trabajos del reino is a vivid portrayal of a world of slums, bars, brothels, drugs, guns, and death that will leave no reader unaffected.

Cuando el cabecilla de una banda local de narcoticos topa con el, Lobo se convierte en el juglar del reino. A traves de sus canciones, describe la vida tanto dentro de la corte como fuera de ella, y aunque al principio sus composiciones sirven para glorificar y popularizar el cartel, juegan a la larga un papel integral en su desaparicion. Con su lenguaje lirico y popular, Trabajos del reino es un retrato vivido de un mundo de arrabales, cantinas, prostibulos, drogas, armas y muerte que no dejara de afectar a ningun lector.
