Book Description:
A man forced to remain immovable for life, prisoner to a wheelchair, tries to impose onto his world the same confinement that he feels. He does it with his Belgian sheepdogs, with his hawk tied to a hanger, with Australian parakeet that he keeps caged, with his nurse, his sister and his mother. Probably also with the reader, who will feel enclosed in a cage that gradually keeps getting smaller and smaller. These stories propose a series of facts as fiction, or perhaps they are real. Description in Spanish: Un hombre obligado a permanecer toda su vida inmovil probablemente es paraplejico; en todo caso, esta confinado a una silla de ruedas trata de someter al mundo a la misma inmovilidad; de hecho, lo consigue con los perros Pastor Belga Malinois de los que es criador, con un halcon amarrado a su percha, con periquitos de Australia que mantiene enjaulados, con su cuidador enfermero, con su hermana y con la madre de ambos. Probablemente tambien con el lector, quien sentira que una jaula empieza a encerrarlo y se hace pequena gradualmente. La secuencia de hechos inquieta y pone en tension; tambien ofrece multiples posibilidades de interpretacion, entre ellas la de que los personajes representen, en sentido metaforico e ironico , realidades colectivas.
