Aire de Dylan

Dylan's Air | Seix Barral, 2012

» Selected in La Vanguardia as one of the best 10 books published in Spanish in 2012

A book about the law of work, as opposed to the art of doing nothing, and the dialectic between the culture of hard work and the ideology of indolence.

An narrator well-versed in the culture of hard work and who regrets being so prolific is shocked when he meets some sceptical youngsters – the Oblomovs – who, faced with the global crisis, have decided to step back, not to take part in anything, and to found the subversive Dylan’s Air society, which aims to capture the true essence of the soul of the period, the air of our time.
