AS IF THERE WAS NO TOMORROW

Nieves Herrero

1953. Madrid is in vogue among the great Hollywood stars. Many of them often stop by our capital since Spain is the place chosen for shooting major North American blockbusters. Among the big stars is Ava Gardner, “the world’s mot beautiful animal”. Ava fell in love with our country and lived one of her great passions here: her romance with the fashionable bullfighter of the time, Luis Miguel Dominguín. The couple loved “as if there was no tomorrow”, which happens to be the title of the new novel by the journalist and writer Nieves Herrero.

This is her second historical novel, since she already attained considerable success with her first work “Hidden Behind Her Eyes”, which narrated the story of a forbidden love in the highest spheres of Franco’s Spain. We will soon have the opportunity of seeing this story told on television, as Mediaset has acquired the rights to it. The series will star Blanca Suarez and Rubén Cortada.

In the nineteen-fifties Madrid in which “As If There Was No Tomorrow” is set, it was commonplace to see famous American film stars in restaurants, taverns and flamenco venues. This was also the case with Botín, one of the places frequented by Ava Gardner, which has the honour of appearing in this new work by Nieves Herrero. Thank you Nieves for remembering us.
