Musik und Musiker im Lichte des Humors und der Satire
Zapinette spends Christmas in the Big Apple! She reveals a slice of life from a perspective that is both rare and familiar. She is unique in her worldly travels, having been born in the United States, currently living in Paris, and visiting faraway lands with her beloved Unky Berky. She is all too common in her pain as the child of a broken home, her anger and hostility over her mother´s new beau (´´Fermin the Virmen´´), her confusion over the baffling realities of the adult world, and her inner longing to find her real father. Armed with a facile mind and an exposure to several languages, Zapinette relies heavily on her own vocabulary to describe the people and events that spin around her. 1. Language: English.
