"Adiós a la revolución" is a novel that revolves around Emilio, a Peruvian emigrant who lives in Philadelphia and works as an art professor at one of the most prestigious universities in the United States. He has a passionate affair with Sophia, a young student from the upper class of American society. She becomes seduced by the revolutionary movements in Latin America, and shortly after, their relationship ends. Emilio remains devoted to his work until, a few years later, Sophia reappears in the most unexpected way: via news reports from Mexico that she has been arrested in Chiapas with the Zapatista Army. How did she, a rich American art student, end up involved in the armed conflict in Mexico? Can Emilio solve the mystery, rescue her from her prison, and thus also save his last chance to be happy?
