Description

Meet Rusty Young

Rusty Young, author of Marching Powder, talks about his new novel, Colombiano an epic tale of rural villages held to ransom, of jungle drug labs, cocaine supermarkets, witch doctors and buried millions, of innocent teenage love, barbaric torture and meticulously planned revenge.

Rusty Young will be signing books after his talk. Buy a book at the event, or bring your own copy along to be signed.

All Pedro Gutiérrez cares about is fishing, playing pool and his girlfriend Camila’s promise to sleep with him on his sixteenth birthday. But his life is ripped apart when Guerrilla soldiers callously execute his father in front of him, and he and his mother are banished from their farm. Swearing vengeance against the men responsible, Pedro joins an illegal Paramilitary group, where he is trained to fight, kill and crush any sign of weakness.

Colombiano is an epic tale of rural villages held to ransom, of jungle drug labs, cocaine supermarkets, witch doctors and buried millions, of innocent teenage love, barbaric torture and meticulously planned revenge.

Rusty Young is the author of the international bestseller Marching Powder, the true story of an English drug smuggler in Bolivia’s notorious San Pedro Prison. Following the global success of Marching Powder Rusty settled in Bogotá, Colombia for seven years. Since 2011, Rusty’s house in Bogotá has been the headquarters for a local charity that supports former child soldiers exiting the civil war, teaching them valuable life skills.
