I wanted to talk about a writer like no other and the uniue and only book he wrote It is not new It was first published in Spain in 2004 the same year the writer died Since then the book has been published extensively in Spain and the rest of Latin America Girasoles Negros reminded me a lot Juan Rulfo Rulfo as everyone knows wrote very few stories and a novel Nonetheless those few pages gave him an important place in the Mexican and Latin American literature of the XX CenturyAlberto Méndez only wrote one book Four stories that have a limited connection between them but that will stay with the reader for a very long time and maybe forever The stories give voice to the those who probably needlessly died in the Spanish Civil War The main characters are not all for the Republic There are fascists communists and simple individuals who following their own ideals go into war to fight a useless battle Whatever their ideology all of them represent in their own way the main features of humanity love fear anger hunger and the search for a better life All these ideals fall betrayed First by reality and then by their own conditionEverything is told very succinctly by an author that will not get on the way in the stories Will not interrupt his characters and will not make his presence felt driving the story And yet he is there A master story teller that knows how to disappear into thin air while the stories develop and explode Very few authors know how to do this Rulfo was one of them and I dare to say Méndez is also one of them It seems that those who write very few pages and those that will bring you to other worlds while reading themFor those who are foreign I think that there is an English translation of this book If you can read in Spanish is a must Otherwise a translation is pertinent

Rimiento atroz ue lo hará madurar demasiado tarde; un preso renuncia a la argucia de Sherezade ue le ha permitido demorar su condena a muerte; un diácono obsesionado con la mujer de un republicano oculto desencadena con su lascivia la desgracia de auella a uien pretendía ama. Well written and interesting but also super depressing
