Gervasio Arrancado (the magic-realism writing persona of Harvey Stanbrough) was born in a small shack in Mexico and raised in the orphanage at Agua Idelfonso, several kilometers, give or take a few, from the fictional fishing village of Agua Rocosa. He is fortunate to have made the acquaintance of Augustus McCrae, Hub and Garth McCann, El Mariachi, Forest Gump, The Bride (Black Mamba), Agents J and K, a very old man with enormous wings, Juan-Carlos Salazár, Maldito, the chupacabra and several other notables. The most interesting man in America is his third cousin, twice removed. Gervasio visits regularly with his friend Nick Porter, whom he fondly calls Paco (nobody knows why, but we’re all certain he has his reasons), and with Juan-Carlos Salazár, whom he calls his colaborador in all things literary. To this day he lives and writes at that place on the horizon where reality just folds into imagination.

The author has the gift of making the narrative visual - more like watching a movie than reading words. The story is most likely true, and very well written.
