A Crack in the Wall
A Crack in the Wall. The protagonist, Pablo Simó, is a middle-aged architect with a secret relating to a character named Nelson Jara. When a woman named Leonor Corell two decades junior to Pablo visits his office asking about Jara, years of pent up dissatisfaction release. Pineiro explores human weaknesses in this novel, and through the weak Pablo she allows readers to see aspects of human nature that are widespread. I found the prose to be quirky to read, but that could be a matter of translation. Readers looking for something unusual might find enjoyment from reading this novel.
