|Plot Summary of Or I'll Dress You in Mourning|
|" Perhaps one of the best biographies I have ever read, this book tells the story
of the fabled Spanish bullfighter Manuel Benitez “El Cordobes”! Born in strict poverty,
this youngser defied all the odds in becoming perhaps the most famous modern day "toreador"!
His phenominal rise to fame is truly something out of a novel! El Cordobes, desperate,
illiterate, starving had one dream, to become a bullfighter. And the odds were stacked
heavily against him. This noble profession certainly had no room for such a peasant!
But the heavens were looking out for him and rise he did. With the help of an influential
patron, El Cordobes succeeded, and with a fervor almost unparalleled. This is no “dull
biography” but a gripping one, complete with all the ingredients of a first-rate novel!
