A la Vuelta de la Próxima Esquina
Around the next corner resembles the unforgettable Aleph described by Borges, showing us from all points of view unimaginable and at the same time, almost simultaneously, all the angles and aspects of life, as magical faceted crystals, they dazzle us throughout each of the pages of this unique work. Thus, the most sensual and carnal aspects of life (the memory of the first amorous escapades, sex, lust, eroticism, desire, prostitution, etc.) parade through this book, but also those more nostalgic, like those inevitably related to the passage of time: the time that we are leaving, the time that we have left. The time that dissolves us and the one that entangles us in the present. The life that was, the one that passes and does not return, but also the one that should be lived as Carpe diem. -- translated from publisher's site
