Iquitos 1910 is based on the underground gay classic--Roger Casement’s description in his own of his voyage of investigation in the Putumayo region of the Amazon, with related passages on Alfred Russel Wallace who explored the same region in the mid 19th century. Memo Strozzi, aspiring writer and amateur entomologist, travels in the Amazon in search of Casement and Wallace, reaching Iquitos and later Tabatinga in Colombia where he is captured and gang raped by FARC guerrillas. Later, escaping, he makes his way up the Putumayo where he visits the old rubber stations. Iquitos 1910 also contains the Memo’s secret diaries, much like Casement’s in tone. This is a book of personal exploration, natural history, travel, eroticism and literary fun.
