Synopsis

(The Marble Stadium) All of the characters that travel through the tales of El estadio de mármol are lost or disoriented people, subject to circumstances out of their control. Each of the stories hides a fear and each reveals with overwhelming force the delicate balance point from which a life can be shattered or changed forever.

Juan Bonilla is a natural born storyteller. Any playing field is fair game for this bitter enemy of literary baroque whose skillful and forceful prose is capable of questioning everything.
