about this item

La nueva novela de Eugenia Rico es una revisión del concepto de pícaro, y su complejo y atrayente protagonista un Lazarillo del siglo XXI.


«No soy malo pero creo que he matado a un hombre. Me desperté con su sangre en mis manos, con el sabor de la sangre en mi boca, mi camisa empapada, los ojos cegados. Por la sangre.»


Lázaro, pícaro y esclavo sexual, camarero y camello, recorre el mundo de ama en amo y de cuerpo en cuerpo. Con hambre de amor, entre promiscuidad y ternura, entre hachís, cocaína, constructores, prostitutas, colegialas, mujeres maduras, mafiosos y políticos corruptos, lucha para no ser un maltratador como su padre y para liberarse de la maldición que le persigue: El beso del canguro.

Porque el infierno es un círculo y el cielo una línea recta.

Eugenia Rico nos vuelve a fascinar con esta nueva novela que actualiza y revitaliza el género picaresco de forma magistral. Divertida y filosófica, cruda y sensual pero llena de poesía, disfrutamos dejándonos atrapar en este homenaje al Lazarillo de Tormes que es, a su vez, un homenaje a la Literatura con mayúsculas.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

Eugenia Rico’s new novel is a revision of the picaresque concept, and her complex and fascinating protagonist is a 21st-century Lazarillo de Tormes.

?I’m not bad, but I think I’ve killed a man. I woke up with his blood on my hands, with the taste of blood in my mouth, my shirt soaked, my eyes blinded. By blood.”

Lázaro, rogue and sex slave, waiter and drug dealer, roams the world from mistress to master, and from body to body. Hungry for love, between promiscuity and tenderness, beween hash and ******, builders, prostitutes, students, mature women, mafia bosses and corrupt politicians, he fights to not become an abuser like his father and to free himself from the curse that follows him: the kangaroo’s kiss.

Because hell is a circle and heaven is a straight line.

Eugenia Rico fascinates us again with this new novel that modernizes and revitalizes the picaresque genre in a masterful way. Funny and philosophical, raw and sensual but full of poetry, we enjoy letting ourselves become tangled in this homage to Lazarillo de Tormes that is also an homage to Literature with a capital ?L.”
