Synopsis: Winner of the Dashiell Hammett prize 2017 and Best Novel Prize at Valencia Negra 2016
In Madrid: frontier, David Llorente takes present-day events and proposes a tough story, unsettling, violent, between fiction and fact. At first the author creates a dystopia by narrating stories of eviction, unemployment and cultural decline and carries them to a much more disheartening future where hunger, poverty and injustice sweeps the streets of a city where rain, darkness and unreal siren songs never cease.
The readers will find many winks towards literature in this book, as for example to “Fahrenheit 451” that besides making it his own, he presents it beneath a new crueler prism.
