Abstract:

"Two sisters and one brother form a family trio so common that it hardly catches our attention. Two sisters who assume, often, an affective responsibility that becomes even more important when parents are missing. They are two crucial characters in this novel with which Luis Mateo Díez returns to surprise us with a humorous turn taken to its ultimate consequences, intensifying the exorbitant breath of his expressionist writing. The two sisters have fallen into this story, which does not grant peace to the reader, a tarambana, dissolute brother, what we might consider a painful inheritance that can lead to moral and material ruin, if neglected. Other characters protect them and help them or, in the worst case, put them on their nerves. History takes us by surprising, unusual or absurd courses. They do not give up in the effort to save the brother, a son of the things that he deserves so much that he is not able to earn, as if in his life everything was owed to him. We are before a fable, as true as disturbing, between laughter and melancholy, about the manipulative feelings, the imposture of the affections, the alibis of the family assets, the misfortune of what is so painfully shared in the responsibilities of the sisters and the brothers. This may be the funniest novel of an author we know many records of, a prolific novelist who owns an inexhaustible world."
