Mercedes Rosende & Tim Gutteridge Taster Video
Welcome to LoveReadingLitfest. Below you will find a short 'Taster' video clip taken from the exclusive LoveReading LitFest interview where our own Paul Blezard talks to Mercedes Rosende & Tim Gutteridge about her book and his translation of 'Corcodile Tears'
It all starts in an overcrowded prison, where Diego is being held on a charge of kidnapping.
Diego’s lawyer, the fastidious Antinucci, secures Diego’s release.
But the lawyer has plans for his client, whose unexpected freedom comes at a price: he must join forces with a brutal psychopath, the Hobo, and hold up an armoured truck.
A hilarious caper ensues, as the robbery swiftly degenerates into mayhem and violence.
While the men appear to be engaged in a perverse competition to see who is the most incompetent, the disparaged women – Ursula Lopez, an amateur criminal with an insatiable appetite, and her rival, Captain Leonilda Lima – reveal themselves to be the true protagonists.
This seemingly classic lowlife crime story has a powerful message: never, ever underestimate the women.
