"In the same manner as alchemists obsessed over the philosopher’s stone, a tooth puller from Seville reaches the Peruvian viceroyalty in search of the worm that makes its home in people’s mouths to hasten human corruption, in a novel set against the backdrop of the Spanish Empire during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries."

In the same manner as alchemists obsessed over the philosopher’s stone, a tooth puller from Seville reaches the Peruvian viceroyalty in search of the worm that makes its home in people’s mouth to hasten human corruption. The Spanish Empire during the 16th and 17th centuries is the backdrop for this novel that recounts the culture and knowledge of the Golden Age; an era of voyages and discoveries, of madness and superstition.
