When Gabriel Rivages recounts the life of Olympic gold medalist and silver-screen heart-throb Johnny Weissmuller (1904-1984), he brings to life a vibrant patchwork of America’s 20th century, from its athletic exploits to its literary underground, from its cinematic glory to its obscure failures. Burroughs sells pencil sharpeners; Einstein crosses paths with squirrel hunters; JFK becomes an airport; Tarzan saves Jane; a corrupt accountant runs away with the savings; WWII makes waves in Lake Michigan; and a living legend wraps up a storied career as a host in a Las Vegas restaurant. Hungary-Hollywood Express is the first novel in Éric Plamondon’s 1984 trilogy. The second and third volumes, Mayonnaise and Apple S, turn their lens on the poet Richard Brautigan and Apple founder Steve Jobs respectively.
