About “Laura María Agustín

  • Laura María Agustín

    I write about people who travel and cross borders to work lots of them without permission or with fake papers Women who work as live in maids or sell sex, men who wash dishes, pick fruit or sell sex Border crossers, undocumented migrants, folks who have paid smugglers to get somewhere new In the media this is usually positioned as hideous trafficking, and all jobs in the sex industry as a fate worse than death It s true, some women would rather die than be sex workers, but guess what Others would rather die than be maids In my writing I don t generalise You need a whole lot of information before it s okay to stick labels on people.My new book is Mediterranean noir, The Three Headed Dog It takes place in Spain, on the crazy mixed Costa del Sol and Madrid.Sex at the Margins Migration, Labour Markets and the Rescue Industry lay the non victimising groundwork in 2007 and continues to be read and highly relevant I wish the publisher did not set the price so high.Connect on facebook facebook lauramariaag

  • Felix Vidal is a person you would want on your side in a tough situation she is smart, resourceful and compassionate but not a sucker for a good story She knows her way around the dives and discos of the Costa del Sol, Spanish Morocco and Morocco s coastal cities Felix is good at her job, finding people who have disappeared into the all but impenetrable universe of documented and undocumeneted migrants from Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean as well as those with documents that were obtaine [...]


  • a really accessible way to get the beginning of an insight into the complexity of migrant illegal worker issues Made me aware of the lives of these people, who I do interact with, but with, it has to be said, not much thought loved the way the ending effectively said there is no ending I m sure there are a million stories like these which should be toldanks for bringing just a few to our attention


  • Every now and again, I read a book that s so good, it makes me jealous It makes me jealous that somebody else wrote it instead of me Not that I could ever have written The Three Headed Dog This is not a book that could have been written by somebody doing perfunctory research into the subject The bookshop shelves and movie screens are full of such books They re invariably nonsense But for some reason, Hollywood does love the Rescue Industry Presumably because it s a dramatic narrative Who cares w [...]


  • Once I visited a town that lives on money sent by people who have gone away Inside immaculately crude wooden houses, photos were proudly displayed showing young family members smiling beside tourist landmarks, shiny automobiles and famous brand shops The photos were emblems of success and also of the courage to leave.


  • A very good read A detective tale told in a pot boiler, noir style Agustin does a wonderful job of conveying the real life, ethically murky world we live in In doing so she writes about a slice of life that often does not get exposed in mass produced fiction The reader not only gets a cracking good piece of entertainment, but also might gain some insight into the complicated daily lives of people who are all too often reduced to cliche s if they are even recognized at all Highly recommended for [...]


  • The Three Headed dog is a beautifully told story about a complicated cast of characters living difficult lives and making morally ambiguous decisions Agustin s Felix Vidal is the co owner of a small bar in the southern Spanish town of Malaga She s also a private detective and a woman with a complicated past of her own Vidal narrates her search for a missing teenage migrant, and the tangled set of characters and circumstances that search reveals None of these circumstances are surprising to Vidal [...]


  • Set in Spain s underworld, this is a detective novel about migrants, people smugglers, organised crime and sex work If you ve not come across Laura Agustin, she s known for her research on migration, human trafficking and sex prostitution The Three Headed Dog draws on this and on her life which, I suspect, has been colourful to tell a story about a boy who goes missing after his parents pay smugglers to bring him from the Dominican Republic to Spain s Costa del Sol.The Three Headed Dog is told f [...]


  • Really interesting noir about people you never get to hear about undocumented migrants and people smugglers.
