"Malaherba" is a novel by Manuel Jabois that begins when Tambu, a ten-year-old boy, finds his father lying motionless in his room and at the same time, meets Elvis, a new classmate. He will discover love and death for the first time, but not in the way he thought. Together, Tambu and Elvis experience the last days of childhood, full of things that still cannot be explained and feelings that do not yet have names. This work also explores the terrible things that are done in the name of love, through humor and a quick prose that advances the characters to the border of a new world.
