Porcelain Fat Boy

Original title: Gordo de Porcelana
Category: Fiction
Synopsis:

The punk novel about Spain, the economic boom, and the disaster it left behind.

This is a novel of adventure, the story of the worst family in the world, and the memory of a unique friendship between two teenagers without a future. Dolo is a woman who group up surrounded by idiotic, violent brothers, oiled bodies, and endless summers on Spain’s east coast. Now Dolo is a woman broken by her past, who spends her days in a psychologist’s office and in prisons, remembering her hallucinatory years as the creator of the only anime series ever to sell in Japan: Porcelain Fat Boy.

Never learning if this anime actually existed or not, the reader enters a world that reveals the absolute worst of Spain during the economic miracle of the nineties and turns a mirror on a society of lies that form the foundations of our so-called modernity. An overheated country that we travel through together with Dolo as we try to understand what the great crime her brother committed was, witnessing the brilliant fits of a psychologist less sane than her patients (and all the more memorable for it), being charmed by the unique friendship between two teenagers without a future.
