Fire roofs – book

Synopsis: The short stories collected here, although each one has its own theme and intrigue, are crossed by common elements: the transitions between wakefulness and sleep, a region where the oneiric lives; the passages between life and death, a space almost virgin to our knowledge where fears and wonders live; déjà vu, an interstice of time in which before and now are confused; the modified states of consciousness, where the release of rational defenses allows the splendor to burst forth, but also the sufferings and imbalances of the mind. How such existential abstractions can be expressed in a prosaic way is what the adventures of Moribundo and Borimundo, Ansílio Portocarrero, Donzília, Fausto Araújo and other characters who parade through these celestial stories tell us.
