In his latest work, Mills Fox Edgerton invents a new literary genre, since these Gossip can not be cataloged in any other way. Mills, armed with his encyclopedic culture and personal literary style, makes us rethink the way we conceive the novel. The nuances of the plot or the description of the characters appear in the dialogues that are exchanged between them and the author has to go assembling this immense puzzle with mastery and subtlety. The conversations are agile and credible, the rhythm of the dialogue keeps the reader immersed in the action and little by little, almost imperceptibly, the succession of gossip gives us a general image until we reach the unexpected outcome. All revolve around the protagonist of the action, David Muñoz, passionate painter and employee of banking, and a doubt about which seems to articulate the whole plot: Is David Muñoz homosexual? The reader can analyze how "gossip" surrounds us in our daily life and sometimes conditions it beyond its real value. In the era of freedom, access to information or the possibility of serene debate, the monster of gossip threatens to make life impossible for us. -- translated from publisher's site
