READING CLUB | "El Encanto" Susana López (Spain)

1947. In the port of Havana, Patricio disembarks, a young Asturian with no other heritage than his desire to eat the world and with no other desire than to leave behind a mining village still shrouded in the shadows of an endless postwar period. A luminous and hospitable city comes out to meet you. A city that never sleeps, with its own rhythm. He soon makes friends and soon finds work in El Encanto, the department stores that are a symbol and the pride of the city. Little by little, with wit and sympathy, Patricio begins to ascend and occupy positions of more responsibility that open him to a new world but also cause many envies. El Encanto will also be the setting for his encounter with Gloria, one of the most beautiful women and undoubtedly the most forbidden on the island, since her husband is the most dangerous gangster in Havana,
