Arabian Nights, The Regent’s Wife, The Heart of Darkness, Lolita and Frankenstein are some of the fundamental books in universal literature. Rosa Montero travels their pages and takes us into their different universes: from eroticism to tragedy, passions, scandals, monsters. “I never feel lonely if I have a book. It’s not just a cliché: for me, books are true talismans. I feel that if I have something on hand to read, I can handle just about anything. Books are an antidote to pain, a sedative for despair, a stimulant against boredom.”
