 About the Book 

The Muchacha SeriesA series of novellas depicting the life of Hans and Annie, a young Dutch couple who emigrate to Colombia in the 1970s.The first thing Hans and Annie are told to do when they arrive in Colombia is to get themselves a maid. They go through a succession of domestic servants in the course of five years. Each novella bears the name of the maid they had working for them at the time. Through a series of poignant and bittersweet observations we witness the slow deterioration of their relationship- their struggle to settle into life among a snobbish and claustrophobic group of ex-pats- and their never ending quest to find themselves a good and reliable maid.
