La novela perfecta: un cuento largo

Front Cover
Alfaguara, 2006 - Fiction - 152 pages
0 Reviews
In Brooklyn, New York, a lazy, indolent writer is about to create the perfect novel. His neighbor has just invented a strange piece of software that will allow him to do it. A small sensor is applied to the underside of the writer's tongue, which receives all the signals emitted by his brain (sights, sounds, sensations, scents), and records them onto a drive. This way, a reader can actually "read" the novel exactly as it was intended by the writer. There is only one condition -the entire story has to be a creation of the author's mind. The catch? The experiment turns as chaotic as our imagination.
