Overview

Weaving together stories filled with endearing characters and situations that are both hilarious and disconcerting, this book is full of humor, sadness, and compassion, but above all, a great sense of life’s absurdities. The unique stories concern, among other things, a fish genie capable of granting wishes, a wormhole that leads to an unknown dimension in which one can live among the lies one has told, a man capable of knowing and saying beforehand exactly what another will say in three seconds’ time, a man who is so bored he spends his days in a café pretending to be someone he’s not, a ruined surprised party attended only by three people who barely know the honored guest, and a company that sells good weather year-round.

Hilvanando historias llenas de personajes entrañables y situaciones a la vez hilarantes y desconcertantes, este libro está lleno de humor, tristeza y compasión, pero sobre todo de un gran sentido de lo absurdo de la vida. Entre las singulares historias están la de un pez genio capaz de conceder deseos, la de un agujero que conduce a una dimensión desconocida en la que se puede vivir con mentiras contadas, la de un hombre capaz de saber y decir por anticipado exactamente lo que alguien dirá tres segundos después, la de otro hombre que de tan aburrido se sienta todos los días en un café y se hace pasar por alguien que no es, la de una malograda fiesta sorpresa a la que asisten tan sólo tres personas que ni siquiera conocen bien al festejado y la de una empresa que vende buen clima todo el año.
