Original Title: Siguiendo mi camino

If songs form the soundtrack of a life, the ones that Mauricio Wiesenthal presents us with link his life to those of the people and the places on the path between two continents. We see appear before us, on a magic frieze, the great hotels, the legendary ships that used to cross the oceans, the friendships, and a European world full of friendly shadows. It is memories that weave this book together and make their appearance in the soirées, the masks and the stages that join up poetry and reality in a hopeful vision of life and time. An immense landscape that finds its unity in the life of emigrants, the songs of memory and the conciliating spirit of culture.

Praises

«A weighty and profound book, marvellously well-written, full of images and sensations. The geography of a soul that is immensely vast and lively».
Andrés Ibáñez, ABC

«The energy that is given off when you read it is almost mystical: like radium, it never stops giving off atoms of light».
Anna Caballé, ABC

«Wiesenthal’s book, like all those he has written, will be read with a smile as one admires the author’s savoir faire, his interesting relations, his style, his very broad culture and his brilliant sentences».
Xavier Moret, El Periódico

«He offers a veritable repertory of songs that evoke the most memorable of yesterdays. The author’s Wiesenthalism will not disappoint his readers».
Javier González-Cotta, El Mundo
