A Vintage Shorts “Short Story Month” Selection
They call it an office job—being a sicario, a hit man—because the sicario is always waiting by the phone. In Medellín, Colombia, there’s always one more job to do. Juan Pablo Merendez is a young sicario just trying to get by, but when he’s summoned to meet his shadowy boss for the first time, all he wants is out—to Cartagena.

“Cartagena” is a heart-pounding, urgent story of violence, unbreakable bonds, and tantalizing escape. From the collection The Boat, winner of the Dylan Thomas Prize and the Anisfield-Wolf Award—Nam Le’s masterfully ambitious globe-hopping debut, heralding the arrival of a remarkable new author.
