Product Overview

This is the story of Jimmy, a sensitive boy gifted with extraordinary powers of observation who lives a privileged yet solitary existence in a mansion in the outskirts of Lima. The son of a rich banker and a devastatingly elegant yet emotionally absent woman, whom he adores, he attends the most exclusive English school in the city and dreams of going to Disney, of one day marrying Annie, and of playing for the F.C. Barcelona. Craving his mother?s attention, Jimmy grows up surrounded by the love of the army of employees at his service: cook, chauffeur, housekeeper, gardener, and butler, these unforgettable characters accompany him on the painful journey of lost innocence, and become his true family. Yo amo a mi mami is the testimony of Jaime Bayly?s achievements as a writer; it is a display of his vast narrative skills. This moving story, which evokes the lost days of his childhood, glows with the particular gift reserved for great novelists, confirming the rise of one of the most original and powerful voices in the new Spanish American literature.
