 The Colony is loosely based on nineteenth century depictions of a cluster of islands off the west coast of Peru, rich in guano, a powerful fertilizer. Lê’s narratives touch on aspects of the islands’ history such as the nineteenth century imperial wars between Spain and its former colonies Peru and Chile, and the US Guano Act of 1856.
