In these stories, Birmajer speaks of love and marriage, paternity and death, sex and passion, deceits and fear of solitude. Beaches, parties, hotels, airplanes, taxis, bars and ATM machines are the backdrops of the stories in this book that can also be taken as a social X-ray of the times in which we live. With talent, unusual humor and originality, Birmajer makes his place in the Spanish-language narrative and poses one certainty: all our misfortunes come from the search for happiness.
