Availability: Ready to download

Rodrigo Mochales lives in China. He is addicted to sex and alcohol, although not necessarily in that order. He supports his vices by dealing leftover Spanish wine that no European would touch to unwitting Chinese customers. Over the course of twenty-one days, Mochales tells the story of his life and those around him. He has a partiality for prostitution and sorid massage par Rodrigo Mochales lives in China. He is addicted to sex and alcohol, although not necessarily in that order. He supports his vices by dealing leftover Spanish wine that no European would touch to unwitting Chinese customers. Over the course of twenty-one days, Mochales tells the story of his life and those around him. He has a partiality for prostitution and sorid massage parlours, but a surprisingly refined palate for food and drink. While engaged in his shady business dealings, he thinks about nationalism, culture and dignity. Although Rodrigo’s soul is by no means immaculate, he is a self-proclaimed lover of purity and he seeks it out in unlikely places - in a masseuse with a number pinned to her back like a horse ready for the races and in a beggar woman he meets in the street and takes home in an attempt to fulfil his constant desire for intimacy. Amidst this swirl of substance abuse and unprotected sex, Mochales reveals harsh truths about the Asian giant and the lives of the community of expatriates around him that he despises. “Too Few Flies for So Much Shit” is a book without an ending, accompanying Rodrigo as he wades through disorder, drama and suffering in his desperate search for love and his daily clashes with uncouth taxi drivers. Decency might seem like a strange goal for a guy who monopolizes on local ignorance to unload adulterated wine on an unsuspecting population of would-be connoisseurs. But by the time we get to know Mochales better, and understand what he’s up against, the meaning of his quest for decency in China and in himself takes on a much deeper and thought-provoking significance. Author’s Background Joaquín Campos was born thirty-nine years ago in Malaga, Spain. A Chef by trade, he has spent the last eight years living abroad in Asia. The first of those six years were in China, which he recently left to become a resident in Cambodia. His desire to write truthfully and honestly about daily life in China inspired this present project. Finishing it about a year ago, it has since then been translated into English by the British poet and novelist Roger Wolfe. After completing “Too Few Flies for So Much Shit”, Joaquín is now working on his second book: “Double Stroke” – a story based on a recent love affair with a woman from the United States. Selections of this work have been published online, in weekly instalments, by the on-line Spanish language literary magazine FronteraD. FronteraD also publishes another weekly blog of Joaquin’s called “Aspersor, Mass Idol” – which concerns the adventures of a male prostitute whose only motivation is to fully satisfy each and every need of woman-kind..., in exchange for money, of course.
