Modern & contemporary fiction (post c 1945)
Israel works in a corner of a shop built into another shop located on the ground floor of the La Vaguada shopping centre. He used to be a dreamer and had a head full of birds and romanticism, but now, after reading a self-help book that has promised him to be a better person, he has adopted a fluid lifestyle. Caught up in a destiny that leads him to nihilism, Israel, like all good anti-heroes, will have to face its own destruction. In a frenetic, feverish, and frenzied journey, which seems to have been taken from the chapter of Joyce's Ulysses' descent into hell, and which also takes place in a single, maddening day, the shopping centre (mirror of the whole of reality) becomes our modern playground, where everything is achieved and everything happens, and a perfect metaphor for the world.
