rosa de sant jordi

A dystopia for Sant Jordi

These days have become repetitive reactions of a moment, and although I always wanted to write a dystopia for Sant Jordi, this year, someone has been ahead of all writers and has created the dystopia that has managed to capture attention at the level world of all and, instead of making us read it as if it were the most interesting of the long-sellers, it is making us live that ...

Las cenizas de la inocencia, Fernando Benzo

Las cenizas de la inocencia, by Fernando Benzo (Plaza & Janes, 2019), is a thriller book written in the purest hardboiled style of the North American 1930s. In this slowly narration, Fernando Benzo takes us into Madrid in the 1940s, in an environment of gangsters, jazz and mafias that could well have escaped from a black film movie of the 1950s due to the images that the narrative gives us. ...

Literary Sorority

However, there are moments in history or in certain social situations, which seems to be that literature should have gender, or at least, it is ...

For my reading, I have chosen the ...

Go ahead woman, always go ahead

I have never understood the distinction of gender in the literary field, because those who really value literature, we will never analyze whether it is the author or author who has written a text, but we will value the work itself, for its literary quality and for the values that you can give us, but never, if you really love literature, and you have respect for what a literary composition ...

La Setmana is the literary fair par excellence that allows us to recognize the work of the publishers who publish in Catalan and the bookshops that ...

Serial Chiller

The month of August. The Sun burns without compassion for all and the asphalt burns under the feet, not even the cats go out to long on the streets at this point in the Summer. The heat laziness threatens to slowly kill urban life, while the shores of the beach suffer a high rate of bulimia from escapes from the big city and vomit bodies greased with greasy oils that ...
