Summary

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • REESE'S BOOK CLUB PICK

La edición en inglés de El clima de Los Ángeles (L.A. Weather) fue galardonada en 2022 con el Rudolfo Anaya Best Latino Focused Fiction Book Award.

Con ingenio y humor, María Amparo Escandón sigue a la familia Alvarado mientras esta lucha con evacuaciones inminentes, secretos, engaños y traiciones, y con la decisión más difícil que deben tomar hasta el momento: permanecer unidos o quemarlo todo.


L.A. está seco como un desierto, Oscar, el patriarca de la familia Alvarado, está obsesionado con el clima y solo quiere un poco de lluvia. En realidad, alberga un secreto que lo distrae de todo lo demás. Su esposa, Keila, desesperada por tener una vida con un poco más de intimidad y un poco menos de Weather Channel, siente que no tiene más remedio que terminar su matrimonio. Sus tres hijas —Claudia, una chef televisiva de actitud insensible; Olivia, una arquitecta de éxito que sufre la culpa de la gentrificación; y Patricia, una maga de las redes sociales que tiene una extraña habilidad para conectarse con el público, pero no con sus amantes— quedan sorprendidas ante la noticia y empiezan a cuestionar todo lo que saben. Cada uno tendrá que mirar críticamente sus propias relaciones y tomar decisiones difíciles en el camino.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER REESE'S BOOK CLUB PICK


Winner for of The Rudolfo Anaya Best Latino Focused Fiction Book Award, 2022.

With quick-wit and humor, Maria Amparo Escandón follows the Alvarado family as they wrestle with impending evacuations, secrets, deception, and betrayal, and their toughest decision yet: whether to stick together or burn it all down.
 
L.A. is parched, dry as a bone, and all Oscar, the weather-obsessed patriarch of the Alvarado family, desperately wants is a little rain. He’s harboring a costly secret that distracts him from everything else. His wife, Keila, desperate for a life with a little more intimacy and a little less Weather Channel, feels she has no choice but to end their marriage. Their three daughters —Claudia, a television chef with a hard-hearted attitude; Olivia, a successful architect who suffers from gentrification guilt; and Patricia, a social media wizard who has an uncanny knack for connecting with audiences but not with her lovers—are blindsided and left questioning everything they know. Each will have to take a critical look at her own relationships and make some tough decisions along the way.
