Description
The Sunday Tertulia is a charming, homespun story about a young American woman, Claire, whose vision of life changes after a group of older and wiser Latina friends bring her into their close-knit community in New York City. Once a month they, come together for an afternoon tertulia -- a Latin tradition of informal gathering where a scrumptious meal, advice, and musings are served in equal measure. At the tertulia no subject goes unexplored, from health and food to romance and heartbreak; from motherhood and beauty to work, Old World traditions, and urban day anxieties. Through the stories, recollections, and counsel of these intelligent, strong-willed women-among them a retired pharmacist from Puerto Rico, a Mexican doctor, a Peruvian chef, and an Argentine professor of literature -- Claire comes to know their diverse, exotic, and sometimes contradictory attitudes about female experience. Slowly she begins to see the trials in her own personal and professional life through a prism more poetic and worldly. As thc tertulia sizzles with song, anecdote, gossip, and lore, Claire also becomes aware of the nuances that make up the differences with Latin American history and tradition, from Mexico and thc Andean plateau to the Southern Cone and the Caribbean islands. Wholesome, funny, and ethereal, The Sunday Tertulia illuminates the intersection of these different cultures in the melting pot of America and celebrates the mystery and lyricism of women's universal hopes and dreams.
