About this Item

"Este libro tiene que ver con la buena vida. Por eso, con frecuencia, el narrador nos lleva a sitios de mala muerte. Quien no encuentra la plenitud alli donde se hornean los antojos, se mima la inconsciencia colectiva y el placer hace trizas al deber? En esta, su version recargada y final del safari nocturno LUNA LLENA EN LAS ROCAS, Xavier Velasco encarna a un narrador festivo y caradura, decidido a llevar la juerga hasta sus ultimas palabras por baras, puticlubes e infiernillos afines. No quiere ser testigo, siono complice. Este libro es la huella literia de un morbo con licencia, prisa y causa. Es la persecuscion romantica del peligro, la congestion de elizires, la conjura de lunas. La lujuriantwe oferta de saltar al vacio y entender cada ofico, vicio y maleficio con azoro infantil y premura adolescente: los ingredientes basicos de la aventura. Mala muerte? A otra zorra con ese mink. Salud por la buena vida." This book has 289 pages. The book is a SIGNED PRESENTATION copy from the author, Xavier Velasco. The text is written entirely in SPANISH.

About this title

Synopsis:

Determined not to be a simple witness but an accomplice, the narrator breathes in the night at bars, cabarets, dives, pick-up joints, children's play areas, wedding receptions, and lover's dimly lit piano bars. He fills his nights with questions and pursues any excess capable of surprising him, disgusting him, threatening him, but never those leaving him unarmed. We could call him a romantic because he is able to fall in love and find mystery and beauty where ordinary folk only see lust, cash and risk. Description in Spanish: Sin credencial de prensa ni amigos en la puerta, en el más delicioso anonimato, el narrador de estas crónicas visita bares, cabaretes, tugurios, antros de mala muerte, table dances, burlesques, clubes sociales, puticlubes, calles de pirujas, zonas rojas, zonas de prostitutos travestidos... pero también zonas de juegos infantiles, fiestas de bodas, bares con pianista melancólico y enamorados de manita sudada.
