La pirueta
Eduardo Halfon

NOVEL | 2010 | 152 pages

Winner of the XIV JOSE MARIA PEREDA SHORT NOVEL PRIZE, this novel tells the hidden and forbidden story of a Serbian piano player, told by someone—who may or may not be the author—called Eduardo Halfon. But it's also the story of an odyssey across the Balkans, an obsession for a jazz player and a mysterious and erotic persecution that, much like this story, surpasses the limits of a normal friendship and overflows the limits of a traditional narrative, only to finds its place in these pages.
