Sobre la tela de una araña
Ricardo Silva Romero
NOVEL | 1999 | 122 pages
In his opening remarks at an academic gathering, Professor Odrick Ravi announces his suicide. From that moment on, the lives of a series of characters that are living on edge take on a ridiculous and almost inexplicable crisis: an alcoholic drives an ambulance, an editor discovers a message from God on his answering machine, Hitchcock witnesses a murder, a student is stuck in an elevator, a corporate executive can't stop laughing during the most important meeting of his life, a cynic witnesses the accidental birth of his son, a priest writes a eulogy against the deceased, a young woman celebrates the worse birthday of her life, a literature class reveals a horrible secret, and an old man confesses to his children the true story behind the death of his cat.
