About the Book:
Un inmigrante astrólogo en Nueva York. Un relato real de la vida en Estados Unidos is a vast book of testimonies that fluidly narrates the vicissitudes and adversities of a Peruvian immigrant who, arriving in New York in the nineties, has to battle daily to survive. The real challenge for an immigrant is not the trip to the US, it is the daily struggle to establish doing different jobs (from cook to astrologer, and fortune-teller), assimilating a culture and language totally different from their own.
