"¡Florecieron los neones!" is a novel that centers around Narciso Falopio, who wants to have faith in the world, but finds that reality always interferes. When he was very young, during the dictatorship, his mother disappeared and his father was shot by the police. As such, he was raised by distant relatives. Then when he turns forty, his wife Nervina leaves him. With that event, the curtain of what he knows as "reality" rises and the plot unfolds. This work explores the enormous pain that humanity can inflict on machines, namely by making them believe they are human and implanting a memory loaded with sadness and turmoil.
