The 3 best books by Alberto Vázquez Figueroa

Books by Alberto Vázquez Figueroa

For me, Alberto Vázquez-Figueroa was one of those authors of transition in youth. In the sense that I read him avidly as a great author of exciting adventures, while he prepared me to make the leap towards more thoughtful readings and more complex authors. He would say more. Surely in the apparent thematic lightness of it...
