El silencio del patinador

£2.99

Product description

Short story collection in the original Spanish.
Juan Manuel de Prada nos ofrece este volumen de relatos, por el que desfilan personajes energúmenos o estrictamente crueles, conductas agravadas de alevosía, premeditación o nocturnidad, desenlaces oficiados bajo el signo del sacrificio o la villanía.
En El silencio del patinador, asistimos a la confirmación de un autor heterodoxo, dueño de un estilo
y una fabulación que rozan el virtuosismo, igualmente dotado para la ironía o el sarcasmo, la recreación de ambientes o la
creación de realidades nuevas. Si en Coños Juan Manuel de Prada se burlaba de los géneros para celebrar luminosamente
el cuerpo femenino, en El silencio del patinador nos ofrece, como en un aquelarre, la cara más oculta de las cosas, la radiografía
atroz, visionaria y absurda de una realidad que late dentro de nosotros. Niños a punto de dejar de serlo, adolescentes inflamados de insomnio,
arribistas acostumbrados a cualquier abyección, escritores enfermos de mediocridad, bohemios de leyenda y otras faunas mitológicas componen
el mosaico de este libro, convocadas por la prosa delictiva, irreverente y sentimental de Juan Manuel de Prada. Un libro destinado a perdurar,
que no dará tregua a sus lectores y les abrirá un abanico de mundos insospechados.
The first few stories have some underlining and vocabulary notes.

Wonder how this unique item ended up online?

Most of the second-hand items you see online have been donated, by supporters like you, to our high street stores. Each item is then priced, photographed and listed on this site by our amazing team of volunteers from across the country.

After you have bought your item, our team of volunteers package and dispatch it from the Shop straight to you or your chosen recipient.

All profits from the sales of our goods go towards funding Oxfam's work around the world. We rely on your donations to sell online so please keep the cycle of goodness going!

Oxfam Bookshop St Albans

Oxfam is the UK's largest second hand bookseller, but it doesn't stop there. We sell a great range of donated music as well. Whether it's vintage LPs or the latest modern fiction you want, we're well worth a look! We also sell greetings cards for every occasion. And of course we have some great stock for sale on Oxfam's Online Shop, too. Call us to find out more.

Could you help us by collecting donations from donors homes? Our shop receives many offers of generous donations that we have to turn down as we do not have volunteers able to collect. We would ask you to collect in your own car, at your convenience and reimburse your petrol costs. It might be a couple of times a month and would make a really big difference to our ability to make money.
