    Read by Alberto Santillán

    La historia, en cierto modo real, de un hombre, su esposa y su caimán.

    The intriguing tale of a young couple and a special alligator on a crazy 1,000-mile adventure.

    “An intentionally improbable, bizarre trip through Southern Americana that is ...an amalgam of fact and an almost Walter Mitty-esque degree of fancy, evoking (because of the deadly yet indispensable animal) Life of Pi and (because of the trope of life as journey) Huckleberry Finn.” - BookPage
