Original Title: Braudel por Braudel

“The day Ricardo Duarte disembarked in the port of Mahón, he did so using the name of Gustavo Braudel and his excuse was that he needed a refuge…” Thus begins this novel in which, strictly speaking, nothing seems to happen yet the reader, spellbound by a sense of throbbing subterranean events, won’t be able to put it down. From an apparently fragmentary sketch there emerges, as in a process of revelation, a story of fascinating magnetism that will transport the reader into the space of pure literature.

Praises

«The writing of Braudel por Braudel is as clear as a Hockney painting. Anyone who starts reading him won’t be able to stop until the last page.».
Roberto Bolaño

«A mature, elegant, wisely reticent novel, one of those books where what happens is much more than what is told».
Javier Cercas, El País

«The references to music, cinema, theatre, and literature give a special air to this novel which, full of hints, is read with unsettling calm».
J. A. Masoliver Ródenas, La Vanguardia
