(El hijo del arquitecto)
Babilonia is a world under permanent construction
This novel is a reflection on the creation, on the beginning of mankind, both as individual and as a collective being, about the passing of time and a unique wisdom. The figure of the architect is the transcript of the relation between a writer and their work, between a human being and their life. The back cover states «An exciting book. The Architect’s Son is a lyrical and reflective work. In some parts, it is an adventure novel, in others, it gets closer to a symbolism standing at the gates of poetry. Like a cathedral, this work combines different styles within a single unit. The threshold must be crossed in order to perceive them».
