Overview

La Trevi sacudió a todo un país.
Sin embargo, nadie sabía realmente quién era esta mujer. . .

Como ninguna otra cantante, la amada, la adorada Gloria Trevi encendió el escenario artístico de México con sus temas revolucionarios y una verborragia insólita. Por una década lo tuvo todo: fama, gloria, encanto, impunidad. Ahora, la misma Gloria espera la sentencia de un tribunal, acusada de rapto, violación y corrupción de menores.

He aquí en un solo tomo la historia imparcial del ascenso y la subsiguiente caída en desgracia de la estrella más cotizada de México, cuyo increíble caso monopolizó los titulares de la prensa internacional como The New York Times Magazine, Rolling Stone, The New Yorker y The Wall Street Journal. Ahora por primera vez, la autora Ximena Diego examina a través de una exhausta investigación periodística las cuestiones candentes hasta ahora no aclaradas:

¿Cómo lograron dos personajes públicos de tan alto perfil como Gloria Trevi y su representante Sergio Andrade mantener por tantos años un grupo de características sectarias? ¿Qué tipo de poder tenían que los hacía incuestionables ante la opinión pública? ¿Cuál es la responsabilidad de Gloria Trevi en el caso? Y más importante, ¿por qué sigue defendiendo a su representante frente a toda la sarta de evidencia en su contra? ¿Es ella una víctima más o, todo lo contrario, una aliada que, en total control de su voluntad, sólo buscaba su propia gloria artística sin importar los medios?

Dentro de estas páginas el gran misterio de la vida secreta de Gloria Trevi queda revelado.

Editorial Reviews

Criticas
Taking a page from the most clich d of entertainment industry horror stories, Gloria Trevi was a rising teen singer taken under the wing of a sadistic and controlling manager (Sergio Andrade), made into a superstar, and then pulled out of the spotlight in disgrace. After collaborating on a string of hit recordings, Trevi and Andrade were indicted in the late '90s for running a sex ring disguised as a talent camp for aspiring female pop stars. Then in 1998, when officials accused Andrade and his troupe of abandoning an infant in Spain, the couple fled to Brazil, where they were eventually incarcerated in 2000. While in the high-security jail, Trevi miraculously conceived a child, leaving the public more perplexed than ever. In early 2003, Trevi was sent back to Mexico and charged with rape, kidnapping, and corruption of minors. Diego, the New York-based author of Shakira: Mujer llena de gracia (Shakira: Woman of Grace, Criticas, Winter 2001), tackles another Latin pop icon, piecing together a narrative from media tidbits and sources close to her subject. A seasoned journalist from Starmedia.com, Diego aptly combines serious investigative work and engaging prose. She manages to avoid spiraling into cheap sensationalism, which, given the subject, could have come easy. While Trevi's autobiography, Gloria (Criticas, Jan./Feb. 2003), denies all the charges, claiming a huge conspiracy by her young female accusers, Diego paints Trevi as a victim of Andrade's will. In the book, Diego offers her theories about what may have happened behind the scenes to this once adored wild child. But under Diego's microscope, Trevi and Andrade don't come out looking innocent. Highly recommend for all bookstoresand libraries.
