Gregorio Malverde has abandoned his daughters, gone to a remote town on the Caribbean coast, and adopted a black girl. Worried about the remains of family wealth, Malverde's daughters organize a trip to take possession of what they believe belongs to them. They decide to take with them their cousin Ada and Gonzalo, a teenager who, upon discovering his sexuality, wants to take over the world. Mar Caníbal is the story of that disastrous journey, marked by prejudice and racism. With her intense and emotionally charged prose, Quesada brings us a powerful reflection on memory, myths, old age and the exploration of sexuality.
