A posthumous work that, according to Tusquets, is “a choral novel of political anticipation that contains the collective portrait of Los besos en el pan and the intrigue of the resisters of the Episodes of an Interminable War, through an unforgettable gallery of characters that, in a country that has suffered strong shocks, they do not want to resign themselves”.
