The AcrobatsAudiobook on MP3 CD - 2014
Living in a rat-infested hotel in Franco's post-war Spain, Andre Bennett, a Canadian painter, loves Toni, his girlfriend, who wants him to return home. Roger Kraus, a Nazi on the run, shadows the young artist day and night. They meet on a bridge during the last night of the fiesta, and as the sky is shredded by exploding fireworks, the story draws to its violent climax. Originally published in 1954, The Acrobats marks Mordecai Richler's stunning debut as a novelist.
