Sinopsis de Los metales nocturnos:
En una noche de agosto cualquiera, en un Madrid decadente y neonazi, socialista y fascista, un escritor sale a las calles en busca de sí mismo o quizá sólo en busca de la propia noche. A su alrededor, el mundo va tejiendo una trama, que le envolverá entre putas viejas y jóvenes, camellos y narcos, muertos y suicidas, juego, sexo y droga, amigos y enemigos, gitanos y payos, policía, cárcel. Así, y mientras dura la eterna noche en que la luna se ha parado como un reloj, el escritor ve cómo su nombre pasa de los suplementos literarios a las páginas de sucesos para terminar encontrando su propio yo.


Synopsis of Night Metals:
On any given August night, in a decadent and neo-Nazi, socialist and fascist Madrid, a writer takes to the streets in search of himself or perhaps only in search of his own night. Around it, the world is weaving a plot, which will wrap you between old and young whores, camels and narcos, dead and suicidal, game, sex and drugs, friends and enemies, gypsies and clowns, police, jail. Thus, and while the eternal night in which the moon has stopped like a clock lasts, the writer sees how his name passes from literary supplements to the pages of events to end up finding his own self.
