Samantha Dunn’s book Faith in Carlos Gomez: A Memoir of Salsa, Sex, and Salvation starts with the newly divorced, thirty-something Samantha’s introduction to salsa — via a lover who quickly becomes an ex lover because he turns out to have other lovers — then quickly spirals down to her sleeping with her very short salsa instructor — then spins into a heartwarming story of her actually learning to dance — on the dance floor and off.
The memoir covers a lot of ground: the colorful Los Angeles salsa scene, a strained and competitive mother-daughter relationship, and Samantha’s love of horses.
