Summary

Tras La hija de la española, la última gran sorpresa de la literatura latinoamericana.

A sus dieciséis años, Facundo empieza a descubrir las hipocresías que lo rodean en el Perú de los años 1990. Ha crecido en Lima en el seno de una familia burguesa, junto a su hermana Alexia, un año mayor que él, y unos padres atentos. En el colegio religioso en el que estudia hace lo que el resto de sus amigos: hablar de chicas, practicar deporte y pensar en la fiesta de promoción. Pero Facundo tiene una particularidad: padece narcolepsia, y puede dormirse en las situaciones más inoportunas, aunque también así consigue evitar situaciones conflictivas.

Cuando su hermana revela en casa que está embarazada, la noticia cae como una bomba. Desencantado con la sociedad, con su familia y con la religión y frustrado por no poder ayudar a su hermana, Facundo se escapa de casa y emprende un vagabundeo por el submundo de su ciudad que le hará cambiar para siempre.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

After La hija de la española / It Would Be Night in Caracas, this is the latest great surprise in Latin American literature.  

At age sixteen, Facundo begins to see the hypocrisies that surround him in Peru in the 1990s. He has grown up in Lima in a well-to-do traditionalist family, along with his sister Alexia, a year older than him, and parents who have always been there for him and his needs. In his private and religious school he does what the rest of his friends do: talk about girls, play sports, and think about their graduation party. But Facundo has a peculiarity: he suffers from narcolepsy, and can fall asleep in the most inappropriate situations, although he sometimes uses it to his advantage.
 
When her sister reveals to her family that she is pregnant, the news drops like a bomb. Discouraged by society, disenchanted with his family and his religion, and frustrated at not being able to help his sister, Facundo runs away from home and goes on a prowl through Lima’s underworld which will change him forever.
