It will present next January 31 in Valladolid (Library of Castile and León, Pza of the Trinidad) at 20 a.m. BLUE ALMONDS edited for publishing Galleon Books. talks each other of its second book (the second part of this trilogy) that turns on the solitude that provokes the love.
A simple man who discovers the love of a way especially strange, in the days before to the famous May of sixty eight and with two women to a time. This way the second novel of the trilogy begins on the solitude that provokes the love, which began with Those Works of art without Repairing (Ed. ABC, Badajoz-2009) and that closes with The Ballad of Sísifo. Three different novels with the common topic of this feeling that only the love can provoke: the sensation of absolute solitude.
In BLUE ALMONDS the personage counts its life since it is expelled from Paris, after the spring riots, until it returns twenty-one years later, for the bicentenary of the revolution, and all its baggage across the love stories through that he lives and the solitude that accompanies him, sometimes overcome with magic and memories, sometimes suffered with the development of its artistic activity, while it moves for the world between forgotten conflicts and its struggle for helping the disadvantaged ones. And any frame in places of half a world.
Every chapter owes its name to a song of Nina Simone and every year to a small musical masterpiece edited in the period in which it develops as homage, as the name of some of the personages (taken of some novel or of some author), in addition to some illustrious one of the recent History.
Debtor of the structure of Transparent Things (Vladimir Nabokov) and of the interior depth of the Japanese authors (Kenzaburo Oé, Haruki Murakami or Eiji Yoshikawa) but with a language between the poetical prose and the Castilian narrative in which the author unrolls in its routine character (Gustavo Martín Grazo, Vicente Álvarez, Ángel Vallecillo, Maria Sanz Casares or José Manuel de la Huerga) the most interesting thing is that it tackles different genres without stopping in any: contemporary, political historical novel, of trips, social, romantic, magic realism and thin humor they are amalgamated without leaving that none of them prevails along its two hundred pages.
