Rising Author Gwen Calvo Takes on Controversial Book
By Pete Allman
Gwen Calvo, one of the new aspiring authors in New York, is collaborating with James Quinn on a fictional book titled Cocaine Masks. Miss Calvo was born in Cartagena, Colombia were she experienced the poverty of the country's people, also learning about the upper society of Colombia's elite.
Cocaine Masks explores the dynamics of power between ordinary hard working Colombians and the massive Colombian drug cartels, also showing the desperate situation of many of the Colombian poor.
Ms. Calvo's novel cleverly accomplishes this by portraying the depth of several people from a different strata of Colombian society: a high level-member of a wealthy Cartel, a poor Cartagean store owner and his son, who are forced to launder money for that Cartel, at personal risks and a young woman who escapes from poverty by marrying into the Cartel hierarchy.
