El viaje americano

American Travel | SM, 1999; Alfaguara, 2013

There’s no business like show business. Hollywood in the 30s. Silent films are already a thing of the past and the talkies, which are shot at the same time by different teams and in different languages, are at the peak of their success. Our young hero works as a waiter on an ocean liner en route from Le Havre to New York and makes friends with a group of artists on their way to Hollywood. Among them is bewitching Margarita, who knows how to turn him into an idol with thousands of admirers.
