Night and ocean
by Raquel Taranilla
Winner of the 2020 Biblioteca Breve Prize.
Bea Silva is shocked when she comes across an article in the newspaper that says someone has stolen the embalmed skull of the legendary silent film director F.W. Murnau. What’s most surprising is that Bea is convinced she knows who the thief is: Quirós, an underemployed filmmaker who one day showed up at her enormous ramshackle house.
At almost thirty-two, Beatriz is a somewhat aloof college professor, weary of life and almost pathologically erudite. The arrival of Quirós brings out her lucid, hyperactive side and sets her up for a wildly unhinged fall.
Raquel Taranilla (Barcelona, 1981) lives in Madrid since 2016, where she teaches writing. She is currently a Professor at the Faculty of Information Sciences of the Complutense University.
