Las Noches de Flores

César Aira|Spanish edition

About the book

Flores has always been one of the better neighborhoods in Buenos Aires. But ultimately the economic crisis also affects its residents. The old pensioners Aldo and Rosa try to make the best of this situation. A friend places them in a job with a pizza delivery service. Soon they are known all over Flores. Who else is traveling in pairs, on foot at night, and always friendly? Aldo and Rosa get to know the dark side of the crisis: families who have become homeless, rioting youth gangs, wandering old people and children. The kidnapping of little Jonathan finally puts the neighborhood to the test. A fantastic distorted picture of bourgeois reality.
