One man promises himself on his birthday that he will no longer dream about being his neighbor, who does receive letters in the mail. Another man finds himself exhausted after a confusing trip in which he pursued the wake of absolute death and destruction on a beach. And yet another man needs to remember but can’t, for each new thought erases a memory. The characters of Emiliano Monge are absorbed in the meanderings of an existence in which the world and things, and the creatures that inhabit it, are described with a precise and evocative language, loaded with powerful images, which serves as the stage in which the daily events of the heroes and anti-heroes who play out their disturbing stories are represented. The eight stories in Arrastrar esa sombra are about others, not only those made of flesh and bone, but also those who dwell in the mind.
