Abstract:

"Lobo, a Chilean who for all literary intents and purposes is Costa Rican, is also the author of the well-received Asalto al paraíso (1992). The three parts of Calypso, a light-hearted novel, center on the precarious love affairs of Amanda, Eudora, and Matilda. Their lives offer an opportunity to portray the unheralded and ignored diversity of Costa Rican culture, and above all, its rhythm. There are memorable characters like 'El Africano' in the first part, who may be 'El Zambo's' double in the last part. Magic realism, marijuana, and Bob Marley's music, as well as the characters' hippie-like wanderings in Central America, make this an enjoyable if not committed novel"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58.
