Spannend, fesselnd und schockierend. Geschrieben wie ein Thriller, allerdings ist alles genauso passiert. Ronan Farrow schreibt zudem auch noch toll. Ein Wahnsinn, was hinter den Kulissen Hollywoods los ist!
Set in Barcelona in the years leading up to the financial crash of 2008, these poignant interlinked stories follow ordinary people whose lives will be changed forever.
Like Robert Altman’s film
Barcelona Dreaming is made up of three interconnected stories that are bound by time and place, and by the way characters weave in and out of them. A crime that remains unreported in one story has light shed on it in another.
Exploring addiction, celebrity, racism, immigration, pornography, and self-delusion,
Barcelona Dreaming has the feeling of a modern fable, underpinned by a longing for the inaccessible and a nostalgia for what is about to be lost.
