What do a depressed soldier, a journalist in search of bait, a demoralized commissioner, a hit man, a stripper and a budding poet have in common? They all live in Babylon, a great boiling city where excess and decadence are constantly confused.
Located in a dystopian universe in transit, the city stands as a huge labyrinth where everything is possible. None of Babylon’s inhabitants know who will be the next to fall into the darkness of their bowels. Life in the city is hectic because death awaits its inhabitants on every corner, and no one knows what the future holds.
The novel is composed of three independent but interrelated stories that reflect in an ironic way on imperialism and its consequences, in which war, dreams, love and the impossibility of finding the meaning of life influence the characters’ daily live.
