Based on his personal experience as a Mexican that belatedly discovers his condition as a Latin American, Volpi weaves four reflections, starting from the last Bolivar, when his dream of a united Latin America had already failed. In a bright and seductive way, Bolivars Insomnia explores the history of Latin America, from its mythical past up to its imagined future and contributes, with humor, irony and great literary expertise, to the understanding of the American continent.
