Movie star Tom Stark sends his Hollywood A-list status into public free fall with an ill-judged comment to an LAPD cop. Over in Madrid, Ferdinand, his long-term Spanish-language dubber, is not only shocked to see the TV news but realizes at once that his future is ruined too – unless he can rescue Tom from disgrace. So begins Ferdinand’s fevered pursuit of his celluloid twin. Success seems near but when the pair are finally united in the unlikely setting of a Californian New Age retreat, it seems that mañana may never come …
My Name is Ferdinand takes a wry look at the absurdities of celebrity and those living life just a little too close to the edge. Pacy and darkly humorous, it offers a unique sardonic spin on Hollywood and the American dream.
Simon Fellowes’ second novel, available on e-book, once more features his unique sardonic spin on Hollywood and the American dream. Simon’s debut novel, Don’t Breathe the Air, is also available in paperback and ebook.
