blereader asked:

I was reading an article about "gusanos barrenadores," or screwworms, and it mentioned how in Devil's Island prisoners died from these insects. Jailers would give prisoners nose rings (to chain them), and the wounds would attract the parasites. Is this mentioned in the book?

D. F. Salvador No, this is not mentioned in the book.
