Full description for Alex y Robert
"Alejandra, why do you never listen to me? Women have never been accepted in the world of bullfighting. So many have tried." "Where I'm from, a closed door is an invitation to knock." Alejandra wants nothing more than to be a matador, like her famous Spanish grandfather. But she's a girl. She's American. And she's picked a really bad time. Bullfighting is on the decline in contemporary Spain, thanks to a controversial bullfighting ban and the worst recession in living memory. Undeterred, Alejandra turns to Roberto, a famous matador her age, for help. "Alex y Robert" is a witty, engaging story of an unlikely transatlantic friendship that challenges assumptions of culture and identity in a changing world.
