Its subject is the pulp hero Diego de la Vega, better known as El Zorro The Fox , who was featured in an early 20th-century novel. He goes to America to find his dream.

As you might guess by my marking, this is my least favourite novel by Isabel Allende.

I get a little angry when people try to say such a thing.
