From the beginning, Juan Carlos Reyes guides us through a universe full of memories, rituals, secrets. The thirty-nine texts that make up this book move fluently from one genre to another, sometimes being micro-stories, essays disguised as notes, or sketches of scripts for a short film. The narration is suddenly confused with a notebook, and it seems that we are before the revelation of the secret diary of an explorer who records the mysteries he discovers: a talking fish, a seven-headed woman, writing apes ... but also all that who thinks and questions himself, stunned by a world that dazzles and confuses him.
But this universe, was it not created by himself? The writer, like a little god, orbits through the space of his writing, that immense sheet where the impala of his imagination moves.
