It's a bit of an understatement to call Judd Apatow busy.
His new book, Sick in the Head, a 500-page collection of Apatow's conversations with some of the greatest minds in comedy, is on the New York Times best-seller list. Meanwhile, his film collaboration with the white-hot Amy Schumer, Trainwreck â€” his fifth movie as a director â€” is set for release within two weeks.
Oh, and he just wrapped up shooting another movie that's due out next year.
In the dirty, crowded, and impoverished immigrant barrios of Buenos Aires of 1913, a 17-year-old girl arrives with little more than some clothes and her grandfather's violin.
Her name is Leda, and she's the character at the heart of Carolina De Robertis' third novel, The Gods of Tango.
Leda, an Italian girl, was sent for by her cousin-husband, but widowed before her ship even lands in South America. She soon finds comfort and excitement in a new kind of music that's filling the city's courtyards, bars and brothels: the tango.
