Un buen chico

Mondadori, 2012

(A Nice Guy) "It´s ok," - Polo tells himself-, "everybody has a past”.

And it´s true, everybody has a past. But seriously, Polo, no one keeps in their past what you keep.

Polo runs into Blanca, an old friend, on a street in Madrid. What begins as a casual conversation soon results into an extremely painful trip into the past and a horrifying revelation of devastating consequences.

A raw, intense and fascinating story that reveals itself through multiple conversations and recollections, in a perfect clockwork mechanism that engages the reader from the very first page. Violent and lyrical at once, Un buen chico is a rare display of literary ambition and a deeply disturbing read.
