Macho Camacho's beat by Luis Rafael Sánchez ( Book )
12 editions published between 1980 and 2001 in English and held by 707 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
From the Publisher: "Infinitely multiplied by the blare of radios, TVs and record players in San Juan, Macho Camacho's guaracha weaves its way across the city and through the lives of one family on a single day: Senator Vicente Reinosa, a crooked politician stuck in a gargantuan traffic jam; his neurotic, aristocratic wife; their son Benny, a fascist who is quite literally in love with his Ferrari; and the Senator's mistress, who inhabits a poorer world with her idiot child, her cousins (Hughie, Louie, and Dewey) and her friend Dona Chon. Macho Camacho's Beat blends the music of puns, fantastic wordplay, advertising slogans, and pop-culture references with the rhythm of the guaracha to satirize the invasive "Americanization" of the island and the way in which a momentary fad impacts the culture at large
