1816, EL AÑO QUE NO HUBO VERANO
(1816, the year there was no summer)
Jordi Tello, the Instagram poet, returns with a new book of previously unpublished stories, through his poetic, fresh and new voice.
When someone breaks your heart, you ask yourself: “What part of me is so defective that it should go away? At what moment has it fallen out of love without telling me? Will it come back to see even how I am? When someone breaks your heart, you pray that he doesn’t leave yet, as if a few more minutes with you would be enough for him to love you again. You want to spend the little energy you haven’t cried yet to hold him anyway even if you know you can’t catch what is already a shadow. When someone breaks your heart you are invaded by insecurity, hatred, nostalgia. Guilt. When someone breaks your heart you are no longer the same.
In this book, Jordi Tello manages to braid sensitive and carnal love, madness, passion, uncertainty, absence and sadness. But also forgiveness. He does it with chivalry but in a direct and translucent way, almost crystalline. This is a work full of thoughts in liquid format.
