Theme: Literary novel | General literary narrative.
The new and extraordinary novel by Fernando Aramburu, after the international success of Patria.
Toni, a high school teacher angry at the world, decides to end his life. Meticulous and serene, he has chosen the date: within a year. Until then, every night he will write, in the apartment he shares with his dog Pepa and a library from which he is shedding, a personal chronicle, hard and disbelieving, but no less tender and humorous. With it he hopes to discover the reasons for his radical decision, to reveal every last particle of his privacy, to tell his past and the many daily affairs of a politically troubled Spain. They will appear, dissected with an implacable scalpel, his parents, a brother whom he cannot bear, his ex-wife Amalia, from whom he cannot disconnect, and his troublesome son Nikita; but also his caustic friend Patachula. And an unexpected Águeda. And in the succession of love and family episodes of this addictive human constellation, Toni, a disoriented man determined to recount its ruins, paradoxically breathes an unforgettable life lesson.

BORDER OF INFINITE PLACES
«As a Uruguayan living in Argentina, I cross to Montevideo frequently, almost always by boat, on a trip that lasts three hours. It is a passage between two world possibilities that I keep in parallel; the things that people know about me in Buenos Aires they don’t know in Montevideo and vice versa. This, at least in the beginning, used to give me a strange feeling of freedom and power, which was that of not belonging anywhere. The ship functioned as an interval between these two possible worlds: the border of two places that do not touch; but also, the border of infinite places that could be touched. I discovered that the ship was a device with secret doors that led to different places that were distant and contiguous at the same time. An indeterminate area, fantastic. The film captures that first moment of grace: the irruption of the doors as an alternative to another possible reality before that reality can be regulated. The momentary possibility of not belonging anywhere and of realizing that infinite places can be touched. The characters in the film are tempted by this possibility and abandon their ways of life in favor of an encounter with the unknown … », Alex Piperno has written.
