Publisher's Summary

Topanga Canyon es el hogar de dos parejas cuyos destinos están a punto de chocar. El estilo liberal de vida de Delaney y Kyra Mossbacker les permite gozar de una existencia sencilla y placentera en una nueva comunidad privada. El es un escritor amante de la naturaleza, y ella una obsesiva agente de bienes y raices. Cándido y América Rincón son mexicanos ilegales que desesperadamente buscan alcazar el sueño americano mientras luchan por sobrevivir acampando a las orillas de un rio. Desde el momento en que aquel desafortunado accidente trae Cándido y Delaney en contacto cercano, estos cuatro y sus mundos opuestos se entrecruzan en lo que poco a poco se convierte en una tragicomedia de errores y malentendidos.

This is the Spanish language version of the popular novel The Tortilla Curtain, in which Topanga Canyon is home to two couples on a collision course. Los Angeles liberals Delaney and Kyra Mossbacker lead an ordered sushi-and-recycling existence in a newly gated hilltop community: he is a sensitive nature writer, she an obsessive realtor. Meanwhile, Mexican illegals Candido and América Rincon desperately cling to their vision of the American Dream as they fight off starvation in a makeshift camp deep in the ravine.

From the moment a freak accident brings Candido and Delany into intimate contact, these four and their opposing worlds gradually intersect in what becomes a tragicomedy of error and misunderstanding.

Please Note: This audiobook is in Spanish.

    "Excelente lectura para cualquier latinoamericano"

    Yo recomendar??a este libro sobre todo para aquellos latinoamericanos que hablan mal de los latinos refugiados en distitntos pa??ses. Una realista descripci??n de las condiciones de vida que deben enfrentar algunos de los latinos quienes van a Estados Unidos a trabajar.
