Overview

Exuberant and colorful, Latin Moon in Manhattan paints a vivid portrait of New York City as the land of El Dorado for today's Latino immigrants. From Little Colombia in Queens to the street life of Times Square, this brilliant novel is crowded with extraordinary characters: Hot Sauce, a midget hooker; Simon Bolivar, a parrot who croons Julio Iglesias songs; the Uttutias, a family rich from cocaine smuggling; Santiago Martinez, a would-be poet whose ancient cat, Mr. O'Donnell, is dying of an enlarged heart.
