Samedi 23 janvier – Cercle Littéraire « The Tortilla Curtain » TC Boyle à 16h30
The Tortilla Curtain is the story of two couples, immigration (in)equality, humanity and much more. Cándido Rincón and América -two illegal immigrants who are dreaming of the good life in California- cross paths with Delaney and Kyra Mossbacher - two well-off Californians. The two couples' paths cross unexpectedly when Cándido is hit and injured by Delaney, who is driving his car along the suburban roads near his home. For different reasons, each man prefers not to call the police or an ambulance, and Delaney soothes
his conscience by giving Cándido "$200 blood money," explaining to Kyra that "He's a Mexican." From that moment on, the lives of the two couples are constantly influenced by the other.
