Books Info:

Cruzar California  [Spanish] free pdf Referring to the street in the West Rogers Park neighborhood of Chicago that divides the wealthy Jewish families from the middle class Jewish families, this 1980 novel is meticulous in its details and generous in its sentimentality. The intricate web of connections that link three neighborhood families--the Rovners, the Wasserstroms, and the Wills--traverses the class line and introduces a range of idiosyncratic characters: high school drama club queen Michelle Wasserstrom- aspiring rock star and ladies' man Larry Rovner- and Muley Wills, a young disc jockey with a troublesome imaginary friend named Peachy Moskowitz. Full of nostalgia for the late 1970s, this smart and funny story embraces the music and events of the era, from bad rock and roll to the Iran hostage crisis. "Refiriendose a la calle en el barrio de West Rogers Park de Chicago que divide a las familias judias pudientes de las familias judias de clase media, esta novela de 1980 es meticulosa en sus detalles y generosa en su sentimentalismo. La intrincada red de conexiones que vinculan a tres familias del barrio--los Rovners, los Wasserstroms y los Wills--atraviesa las clases sociales y presenta una variedad de personajes idiosincrasicos: Michelle Wasserstrom, la reina del club de drama de la escuela secundaria- Larry Rovner, un aspirante a estrella de rock y donjuan- y Muley Wills, un joven disk jockey con un travieso amigo imaginario llamado Peachy Moskowitz. Llena de nostalgia por los anos 1970s, esta historia inteligente y humoristica abarca la musica y los eventos de la epoca, desde el rock and roll malo hasta la crisis de los rehenes en Iran."
