Spencer Bailey about this book: Anybody who spends any time on the streets of Lima cannot fail to be inspired by the colours, the noise, the lives, the interactions, the realities and tragedies of the people they meet. This book is a reflection of all those passing moments, reinforced daily by the eternal search for tears in the national media, and represents a unique foreigner's perspective of daily life in this magnificent, frightening city.
Felipe, an impoverished taxi driver, rescues Alejandra, the wealthy daughter of a banking family from a suicide attempt, but as their unexpected relationship develops, an old colleague of Felipe's from the brutal street gangs of Callao, the career criminal Fabrizio, is released from his latest prison sentence eager for revenge on the policeman who put him behind bars. As the lives of these three people intertwine, nobody can foresee the tragic consequences that befall all the people involved. "Not All Dragons Dance" can be described as Grim Realism in its darkest form, but page-turningly entertaining with wonderful portrayals of the forgotten majority struggling for survival in this anarchic city.
