Original Title: El camino de la oruga

Like an open curtain that unveils the most silenced reality, these short stories explore the dark side of characters who are spied on in their hideaways where normal eyes cannot see, where decency would counsel going no further. In his first book, Javier Mije probes the depths of the obscurest human condition with great determination and skill. With a style rich in imagery, he builds his stories on these foundations, entering the recondite rooms in which we hide, reaching the core of dark secrets wrestling with the structures of our own conventions.
