WINNER OF THE 2009 CLARÍN PRIZE FOR THE NOVEL

In Lighter Than Air ("Más liviano que el aire ") an excess of confidence was the thief's downfall. Or perhaps the impetuousness of adolescence.He's only fourteen, and the old woman he intends to burgle, ninety-three. In theory, nothing can go wrong. But it goes wrong. Before the young man can say "knife", he is locked in the bathroom with the elderly woman on the other side of the door. He will now have to hear the story of a life that is coming to an end. His voice does not matter. The woman's hour to speak has come, and she must be reckoned with. Más liviano que el aire is a brilliant coup: Federico Jeanmaire masterfully builds an unforgettable monologue. Hilarious and dramatic, of dazzling intensity. A great novel that surprises to the last page.
