«Juan Bonilla constructs with great efficacy, demonstrates that his techniques are the fruit of a serious reflection on the theory of the short story.» Joaquín Marco, El Cultural

Synopsis

(Based on Real Facts) When only in America, they’d started to see hints of what is today known as autofiction and they basked in the invention of the terminology, Juan Bonilla was already practicing it in his books of short stories. The tales by this author are set in a unique mould, beautifully crafted by the narrator, in which, sharp observation, a sense of humour, and love broken by literature fit. In short: talent.

This book is the definitive recompilation of tales written by Bonilla until now. The selection in which unpublished and published texts coexist was made by the author himself, who has written an epilogue for the occasion with interesting commentaries for each one of them.
