"La ilusión de los mamíferos" is a passionate, sweet, ambiguous, and painful story of the meeting of two men, repeated Sunday after Sunday in a small apartment. From there they look out over the balcony, which unfolds into a majestic horizon of trees and buildings in a poor and foolish Buenos Aires. The days that separate them, those of the week, which human beings dedicate to work and family, come swiftly. And then they return to the day of delivery and celebration, of sex and conversations with few words, a feast that both satiates and despairs. In this delicate and intense novel, author Julián López encourages these characters to persist in their journey toward the hearts of others. Because it is only in that search in the dark that the meaning of life is revealed.
