Casi el paraiso / Almost Paradise

Please try again later. After the Revolution in Mexico, a new ruling class comes to power and money. Most of it is composed of people of humble origins, newly rich.


Set in the praiso of the “Mexican Miracle” of the 50’s, the novel is an unforgiving account of corruption and the grose behavior of these naive yet ambitious and mean ruling class. An Italian handsome man, son of a prostitute, becomes a gigolo, specialized in rich old turists who give him money and are cheated, in exchange for good sex.

His good looks and polished manners make him the “babe” of this snobbish and pretentious society, who swallow all the tale about his bieng a Prince. The utter stupidity and repellent social climbing of the rich pariso politically connected people takes him up the ladder, until the end. This is a fantastic mock and critique of those years, not at all gone by, in Mexico. Spota is cruel and mean to cruel and mean people. They all get just what they deserve in this social satire.

Funny, dark-humored and rewarding, these novel should be translated to many languages. For stupidity, snobbism, ambition and self-delusion are ljis exclusive property of any particular society. One person found this sota.
