Summary :

Sayonara is a beautiful Indian prostitute of Tora, a city in the Colombian forest. Once a month the oil riggers of the Tropical Oil Company descend upon the city, where Sayonara is a legend and no one is immune to her charms. Sayonara rules their squalid paradise like a queen, until one day - against the sage advice of her 'Godmother' - she violates the unwritten rules of her profession by falling in love with a man she can never have. Sayonara's unrequited passion has tragic consequences not only for herself, but for all those whose lives ultimately depend on the Tropical Oil Company. A lush romantic novel about the world of prostitutes in Barrancaberma, Colombia, inspired by historical events.
