Summary, etc.:
This dramatic, darkly funny narrative, which covers the eventful decade from 1979 to 1989, takes the reader inside war-ridden Peru, dictatorship-run Bolivia, post-Malvinas Argentina and Pinochet's Chile. "Something Fierce" is a gripping story of love, war and resistance and a rare first-hand account of revolutionary life.
