Una de Aira sin trama ni personajes, 100 páginas de la más pura nada.

De esos libros que no sólo contagian las ganas de escribir sino que de yapa te hacen lamentar todo lo que no escribiste hasta ahora.

Lo lei en una hora que tuve libre. Es perfecto para eso. No estoy seguro si para algo mas.

A good book? I think not really. An interesting book? Definitely. This might be Aira in a nutshell. The book starts pointlessly and oddly; it continues into boring places and deep places; it terminates at a random point. In the interim, many interesting and funny observations, some drivel, some drudgery. I read what there was of Aira in English and wanted more and decided to make myself able to read Spanish. After this book --- a random starting point --- yes, it was worth it.
