"Chicharrón de oso y algunos cuentos del fracaso" is an anthology of twenty-one short stories that, set in the context of everyday life, reveal the feelings and thoughts of the modern human, often hidden under social conventions. Balanced between humor and criticism, the varied mixture of youth and adult voices that make up this volume exhibits the two faces of its protagonists: the one they usually wear, a product of that hypocrisy learned and understood as necessary, and the genuine one, often hidden behind the curtain of the "right thing". Each of the stories will lead the reader to reflect on nostalgia, loneliness, indifference, frustration, and more.
