"Vivir sin permiso y otros historias de Oeste" contains three stories by Manuel Rivas in which he discusses how it's more important to decide whether or not to be free than to have or not have power. The story “El miedo de los erizos” explores rebellion as a place occupied by those who have nothing to lose. “Vivir sin permiso” shows how influential businessman Nemo Bandeira has tried to cover any crimes committed with decency and decorum as possible, when suddenly his memory begins to fade. “Sagrado mar” examines the true tragedy of lives ruled by obedience and compliance. This work was translated from its original Galician title, "Vivir sen permiso e outras historias de Oeste" by Rivas, who was born in A Coruña.
