[ENGLISH TRANSLATION]--Fernando Padrón is known to the people of his community as the “Godfather of Jackson Heights.” He is a friend to any Latin immigrants who need his help. He is a man who does all types of jobs, including wading through the red-tape of social services, serving as an accountant or a missing-persons detective, even helping the families of drug mules. This Spanish-language audiobook consists of 11 stories that are interrelated through the character of Fernando. The performance of its narrator, Jorge Pupo, is superior. He narrates these vignettes with singular genius and demonstrates a true gift for changing his accents. One moment he is Colombian, and the next he is Newyorican! This audiobook with its remarkable reading by Pupo will give satisfaction to all of its readers. J.A.G., trans. L.R.P. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2009]
