I found Camp Olvido to be a nice little novella with well-constructed themes and a fair-paced plot. The story revolves around a bootlegger named Esteban, who travels to work camps in Southern California in order to serve the employed Latino immigrants, desperate for an escape from their hellish realities/5.

"In CAMP OLVIDO, Lawrence Coates paints a sensual and humane picture of life and death in a depression-era work camp peopled by Latino fieldworkers showing not only the sorrow of endemic poverty and powerlessness but the love and good humor of a community that can endure."—Bonnie Jo Campbell Read Camp Olvido book Read less The Amazon Book Review5/5(3).

One evening at labor camp nicknamed Camp Olvido, Esteban finds that a child’s sickness has taken away all desire for his wares, and nobody is in the mood for the kind of meager happiness he can provide. To purchase the goodwill of the camp for his next visit, he gives the parents of the child some money to help with medicine.

"CAMP OLVIDO is everything a novella should be—intense as it is resonant, propulsive as it is deep—but, even more than a shining example of the form, it is simply a great story. I haven't read anything as powerful about pickers and California since I read John Steinbeck.

Camp Olvido won Miami University Press’s novella prize, and joins four other novels by Lawrence Coates that are set in California: The Goodbye House, The Garden of the World, The Master of Monterey, and The Blossom Festival. Rain Taxi Online Edition Spring | © Rain Taxi, Inc.
