Description

Narrated in nine seemingly independent stories that are actually interrelated and find their common nexus at the Cafe de la Luna, this novel brings essential human emotions to the fore. Located in what was once an old brothel, the Cafe de la Luna becomes the common center that draws a motley collection of characters. Among them are Demetrio, the florist of Las Ramblas; Libio Sanjuan, a writer; Berenice, a young Colombian woman; Pablo, who abandoned his family for his dream of becoming an actor; Manuela, nicknamed Nela, a variety show artist; and finally Clara, a girl who feels unlucky in love."Narrado mediante nueve historias aparentemente independientes pero que en realidad se interrelacionan y tienen como nexo comun el Cafe de la Luna, esta novela trae a relucir los sentimientos humanos esenciales. Ubicado en lo que fue una antigua casa de citas, el Cafe de la Luna se convierte en el centro comun que atrae un grupo variopinto de personajes. Entre ellos se encuentran Demetrio, el florista de Las Ramblas; Libio Sanjuan, un escritor; Berenice, una joven colombiana; Pablo, quien abandono a su familia por el sueno de ser actor; Manuela, apodada Nela, una artista de varietes; y finalmente, Clara, una chica que se siente desgraciada por falta de amor.""show more

Review quote

"Nada mas empujar la puerta acristalada he tenido la impresion que mas que a un cafe, estaba entrando en una embarcacion. Emprendiendo un viaje. El local parecia varado en mitad de la historia y echaria a andar en cualquier momento, con un destino impredecible." Care Santos"show more
