Imagine a world where nothing costs money. Imagine a world where it is compulsory to consume nonstop until you fill in a very special card. For most of the inhabitants, it would be paradise, but for a minority it is more like the threshold of hell. The author, Michel Angel Casau Valverde, uses a fine, strong narrative to transport us to a dream city, an apparently idyllic place that provides the backdrop to a story of love, intrigue, and above all, terror. Dalípoli is a journey into the darkest depths of man where it seems you no longer need be dead to become acquainted with the real home of the devil.
