KETCHUP

Author: Wednesday 29 October 2014

Freedom does not exist. Life only offers two choices: Forming part of the group or dying  … That is what is in the mind of Miki, a young man from Barcelona who wants  to escape from his fate.  Doing his homework, completing his studies, finding a decent job….Or selling drugs, driving around at full speed, thinking you’re the king of the world?  Where does your future lie, Miki?  You have two choices, just two. “Ketchup” is a literary vision of the abandoning of ethics on the part of young people living in the our cities, a novel that paints a picture of the emptiness of a lost generation with the precision of a chronicle, a world that the reader will instantly recognise if he happens to be travelling on any evening urban train.
