As Luck Would Have It by Bruno Schwebel
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Schwebel was ten years old when his family escaped from Vienna in 1938 to seek refuge from Nazi persecution in Paris. After various sojourns in France, they fled to Lisbon, then to Casablanca, and eventually reached Mexico City. A man of many talents Schwebel worked as electrical engineer, cameraman, advancing to the position of technical director of Mexico's largest TV network. He also became an actor, folk musician, painter and chess champion. He explored his new home country on many trips. These recollections consist of a chronological narrative and ten character portraits. With alert curiosity, calm precision, and a wise touch of humour, they tell the poignant story of a remarkable life and its many events.
