By Pauline Butcher,Manuel de la Fuente,Vicente Forés

Londres. Corre el año 1967 y Pauline deambula sin rumbo por l. a. mágica metrópoli contracultural de los sesenta. Tiene 21 años, trabaja en una agencia de secretarias y no suele desmelenarse, pero un inesperado encuentro cambiará radicalmente su vida: una tarde recibe l. a. llamada de un sujeto que necesita transcribir las letras de un disco. Es Frank Zappa. Ese feliz e inconceivable encargo vendrá seguido por vagos flirteos, extrañas confidencias y una propuesta desconcertante: trasladarse a Los Ángeles e ingresar en los angeles variopinta cuadrilla que allí convive y desvaría con el cantante. Aceptada los angeles invitación, nuestra audaz mecanógrafa asistirá atónita y deslumbrada al asombroso espectáculo que se representa frente a ella. Contempla l. a. incansable actividad creativa de Zappa, es toda oídos durante sus peregrinos coloquios con tipos como Mick Jagger, George Harrison, Eric Clapton o Rod Stewart y asiste religiosamente a los extáticos ensayos de su grupo, ceremonias por las que desfila una caterva de friquis, tunantes, colgados y entrañables soñadores. De todo ello da cuenta en este libro.
