Teniente Bravo

Teniente Bravo / Lieutenant Bravo

Short stories and novellas , 1987


Three masterful stories. In Historia de detectives (Detective Story), four boys in a dented, rusty Lincoln give free rein to their fantasies. A scathing, ironic, pathetic and often funny critique of the stubborn bravery of a Francoist soldier is portrayed in Teniente Bravo. Finally, in El fantasma del Cine Roxy (The Roxy Cinema Ghost), myths of the silver screen coexist with present-day reality.
