Author: Sandra Bruna Friday 29 January 2021

Any life can change in a minute

In the winter of 1943, Madrid wakes up in the ruins of war. In the suburbs of the city, Daniel hides his true identity and, with it, his past in the conflict. In the other Madrid, the one of the cafés and the shop windows of Calle Serrano, Julita begins to study literature at university and feels the need to separate herself from the future her family had always planned for her.

The minute it takes for two trains to collide

United by the force of destiny, the two young people will coincide in a long journey on the express train from Madrid to La Coruña, fleeing from what others have planned for them. There they will meet and their complicity will be born, without knowing that the train is headed for a catastrophe that will change their lives forever.

The minute it takes for two glances to cross paths

Author: Bruno Thursday 14 May 2020

After Verlaine’s death, the poem that Rimbaud gave him, La chasse spirituelle, travelled from France to Reus, and from Reus to Móra la Nova, where it remained secretly under a floor tile of Esteve’s family oil mill.

Halfway between the literary thriller and the historical setting novel, El misteri d’Arthur Rimbaud offers a series of chapters that the reader can read according to the order offered by the author or the one he owns decides.
