Una de Aira sin trama ni personajes, 100 páginas de la más pura nada.
Nov 16, 2012 Eric NYOB rated it really liked it
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.

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.
