Ha pasado bastante tiempo desde que deje postergado, resignadamente, las novelas de Somoza. “La caverna de las ideas” fue un inicio prometedor en mi particular periplo por su obra, que luego ha ido dando bandazos (en concreto tres libros considerados como pasables o aceptables), no obstante, en mitad de dichas oscilaciones, hay otro momento culminante con “Clara en la penumbra”.

Comment peut-on maîtriser autant des intrigues à ce point tordues, traiter des thèmes aussi originaux ? Somoza le fait, Somoza peut tout faire.

Leído del tirón. Algunas partes un poco flojas, pero está muy bien escrito. Recomendable.
