Avaria

Empúries, 1990 | Breakdown

Synopsis

(Breakdown) 15 stories – bordering on a novel – in which there are highly gifted children, museums, libraries, prisons, Siamese twins, girls, weddings, offspring, separations, gurus, maniacs clubs, croupiers, carwashes, inspectors from the Michelin Guide, Divine Comedies, Bing Crosby, Audrey Hepburn, landscapes, strategies. Lethargies, melancholies, writers, more girls and mechanics that repair typewriters. Avaria is a succinct work, a book in which the failures, passions, fictions, oversights and differences take shape from the irony and sense of humour that are characteristic of the author.
