After buying a used copy of A Spaniard in the Works on an October evening in 1980, Victor Mercado, a twenty-seven-year old clerk, had a chance encounter that would change his outlook forever: he met the book's author, John Lennon. It happened so quickly, though, that this struggling musician and Beatles fanatic didn't get to say the things he needed to say. What unfolds is a desperate search for Lennon, revealing big dreams, missed opportunities, and a quest for fulfillment. Unearthed after Oscar Hijuelos's sudden passing, and published for the first time, ANOTHER SPANIARD IN THE WORKS embodies the omnipresent themes from Hijuelos's literary canon: Cuban identity, musicianship, and self-discovery.
