Synopsis

Seven touching stories that may very well be called “Variations on the Jonah theme”, as each one of them is inspired on a different passage from that valuable biblical book. Nevertheless, this unifying thread does not prevent the author from taking us through different backgrounds where humor, confusion, psychological investigation, and social critique alternately prevail.

Suspense permeates the progressive and unexpected revelation of each character, invading the narrative space with masterful stylistic fluency. The language, vigorous and yet subtle , thrills, moves, and opens a lucid path towards reflection.
