'Instantáneas NorteAmericanas' by Alberto Roblest

Thursday, Oct. 24, 2013, 7 p.m.

Instantaneas NorteamericanasInstantáneas NorteAmericanas (Spanish Edition) by Alberto Roblest is replete with stories and surprises. Stories where the Kafkaesque absurdity flirts with Aesop's fables and where realism faces the brutality of the modern world.

The settings are the United States of America: in the great cities, mental loopholes, and shadows. The characters could be any of us or ours; already reflected in the thirtieth floor of a skyscraper about to fall, and battling against merciless cold lying on the sidewalk.

The here and the beyond, stories of unusual force all that does not exclude the laughter on their lips and the unfathomable lurking between the lines.
