Es una historia breve pero muy intensa y Fernández Cubas escribe tan bien que logra introducirte con facilidad. La forma que tiene de jugar con el lector y el narrrador es muy interesante.

A great modern novel that is basically a twist on classic sea-faring / castaway novels like Moby Dick or Robinson Crusoe. Daniel is a young man in his 20s who leaves seminary after the death of his father, feeling lost. His sister is in charge of his father's trust, and orders him to take a year off.

Sí, Robinson Crusoe de Daniel Defoe. No en la tirada de Foe, de Jonh Maxwell Coetzee. Imaginación e inventiva para llevar la contenida suplantación de la identidad a causes actuales donde los 'eco-locos' son héroes incidentales de un personaje que a través de la escritura sobrevive. De nuevo la literatura como balsa para sobrellevar las tormentas que nos hacen naugrafagar. El relato como única respuesta a la realidad.
