NOVEL | 1996 | 378 pages
Alfonso Fernández thinks he knows it all, but in fact he knows nothing at all. As his boss would put it, he is "an idiot." He is also a young journalist doing an internship in the worst department—crime beat—at the worst tabloid in the city. With this book, written in a pulpy, popular and coarse prose, Fuguet delves into the world of crass tabloid journalism with a story that is splattered with blood, ink, black humor and bohemia. Much like prostitution, journalism is a job that is learned on the streets.
