It is Sylvia's sixteenth birthday, and her life as an adult is about to begin{u2014}not with the party she had been planning, but with a car accident and a broken leg. Behind the wheel is a talented young soccer player, just arrived from Buenos Aires and set for stardom on and off the field. As their destinies collide and a young romance is set in motion, across town, Sylvia's father and grandfather are finding their own lives suddenly derailed by a violent murder and a secret affair with a prostitute. Set against the maze of Madrid's congested and contested streets, Learning to Lose follows these four individuals as they swerve off course in unexpected directions. Each of them is dodging guilt and the fear of failure, but their shared search for happiness, love, purity, redemption, and, above all, a way to survive, forms a taut narrative web that binds the characters together. From one of Spain's most celebrated contemporary writers, Learning to Lose is a lucid and gripping view into the complexities of lives overturned and into the capriciousness of modern life, with its intoxicating highs and devastating lows
Blitz by David Trueba( Book )

17 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 383 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From the author of Learning to Lose, David Trueba's new novel about a young Spanish architect's affair with an older German woman. Blitz is a romantic tragicomedy that recounts the exploits of Beto, a young architect who heads to Munich with his girlfriend to take part in a landscape-planning competition. In an instant, a text message Beto wasn't meant to receive shatters him, leaving him bewildered and heading nowhere. But unintentionally he falls into the arms of Helga, an older woman, in a cross-generational encounter that is the heart of the tale. With sensitivity and biting wit, Trueba crafts a story of errant souls and lost loves, humorously critiquing male narcissism, all the while showing us that in this modern age it is more important than ever to appreciate every moment and embrace intimacy when luck allows it, no matter from where"--

Con el objetivo de enterrar a su padre en el pueblo donde nació, Daniel emprende un viaje en un vehículo muy particular, un coche fúnebre, conducido por un chófer ecuatoriano, pintoresco y charlatán, de la mejor estirpe cómica. ¿Quién es de verdad Dani Mosca? Quizá, como sostiene él mismo, es sólo un tipo que hace canciones, sobre todo canciones de amor. Pero es también el niño que creció en un barrio humilde; que encontró la amistad más profunda de esa manera accidental en que uno encuentra las grandes cosas de la vida; que viajó y disfrutó de su oficio en la música hasta que la tríada clásica de los excesos (sexo, drogas y rock and roll) desintegró el grupo que había formado con sus amigos del alma; y cuya vida se sostuvo en un equilibrio precario pero resistente entre el deseo y la realidad. Ésta es una novela que a ratos se lee como una canción. Contiene la visión personal de un tiempo y unos lugares en los que Dani Mosca se construyó una identidad propia a fuerza de ideales y sueños, y también de algunos autoengaños y mentiras. Un viaje profundo e intenso, sensible y directo, donde se perciben las huellas y las cicatrices del paso del tiempo. David Trueba vuelve a desplegar, bajo una estructura poderosa y zigzagueante, hecha de hilos que se entrelazan, su prodigioso pulso narrativo para proyectar una mirada aguda y reflexiva sobre las paradojas y las perplejidades que rodean nuestra existencia y adentrarse con lucidez en el laberinto de los afectos y los sentimientos. El resultado es un libro deslumbrante en cada una de cuyas páginas palpita la vida
