Maldito Planeta Azul

Periférica, 2012 | Damned Blue Planet

(Damned Blue Planet) A Supermán (with written accent on the ‘a’ indeed), a smoker and a drunk who seems more the result of dirty realism than magic realism. Bored teenagers who pass the time killing zombies or fleeing Earth for Mars. Post-teen love and rites of passage. Melancholy and action.
Both Bret Easton Ellis and Philip K. Dick, Bukowski and the Pixies resonate in these four stories which skillfully merge genres: the “Latin American dictators” novel with science-fiction, comedy with gore.
But above all the traces it is the author’s voice that speaks with fresh wisdom and humour about teenage boredom and the longing for happiness, in any epoch, in any place.
