Big Brother Volcano


Jamie Selway


Alan was supposed to be coming to Nicaragua’s ‘Mercado Village,’ a hipster resort for American tourists, with his wife for a rejuvenating vacation, a last ditch effort to save their failing marriage. But when she flakes, he’s joined instead by his clueless brother-in-law Mike. As the two settle in, they meet Barbara, an American ex-pat who co-founded Mercado Village years earlier as a utopian haven for artists and free spirits. During this excursion, Alan finds out that his wife’s been having an affair and becomes infatuated with Barbara. As he begins to see her as the catchall solution to all of life’s problems waiting for him back home, his friendship with Mike suffers.
