El novio del mundo

The Boyfriend of the World | Tusquets, 1998

Walter Arias, the boyfriend of the world, is a mixture of surrealist philosopher and anti-freudian psychoanalyst, a sexually-obsessed romantic, a moralist and a deliquent. A mixture, in fact, of everything that cannot and should never be mixed.

A thinking that oscillates between Descartes and baron Munchausen makes Walter Arias a precursor of the philosophical movement known as Walterism, one of the least spiritual spiritual trends known in the past millennium. A hilarious, picaresque and metaphysical thriller.
