Your Name Will Follow You Home
THE YOUNG, RECLUSIVE novelist Danny Santiago came out of nowhere and took the literary world by storm. His novel, FAMOUS ALL OVER TOWN, was a gritty, authentic depiction of Chicano life in East LA told through the eyes of a troubled teenager. But is it authentic? And who is the real Danny Santiago? Your Name Will Follow You Home takes us on a wild, only-in-America odyssey to the darkest heart of these questions. Charlie Chaplin. Communists in Hollywood. HUAC. The Blacklist. 50 B-Monster Movies. Architectural Fantasias. Fake Latinos. Jesse James.
