Chance encounters, altered plans, unexpected turns of events—all seem to propel Gabriel in directions he is unable or unwilling to control. But somehow his luck always carries him through.
Fusing the very different cultures of South America and North America, A Lucky Guy follows Gabriel through the challenges of a Jewish childhood in a profoundly Catholic country, the self-doubts and sexual awakenings of adolescence, and the thrills of establishing himself in a foreign land. Along the way we meet a gallery of unique characters, from the ancient Rabbi who, in his mind, still lives in the Old World, to the ambitious young businessman who may not be all he seems. Interweaving intense personal adventures with historical events, A Lucky Guy brings to life the rich range of events that sway and motivate Gabriel, ultimately prompting his individual evolution.
