Item description for A troche y moche (Spanish Edition) by Gustavo Sainz...

A novelist in a limousine around Mexico City is kidnapped after receiving a literary prize. As of that moment, the writer spends all his time tied to a chair blindfolded; his only company in order not to lose his mind is the obsessive voice he hears in his mind. All he does is think; he remembers deaths, blindness, and darkness in Literature. The questions: who, how, why and when are left floating in the air. The narration comes from his mind and he must continue to think in order to continue living.

Description in Spanish: Un novelista sentado junto a su guapa editora en una limousine que circula por las calles de la ciudad de Mxico, es secuestrado tras haber recibido un premio literario (al cheque le falta la firma). A partir de ese momento, el escritor pasa el tiempo atado a una silla con los ojos vendados; como nica compaa para no perder la razn, tiene a la obsesiva voz de sus pensamientos. Reflexiona sobre las circunstancias previas al secuestro, en el crimen mismo y en la situacin terrible en que se encuentra. El escritor sufre fsicamente, vive una situacin de encierro terrible: a ciegas, amordazado, apenas escucha a sus captores. Hambre, sed, conciencia del cuerpo sucio, incomodidad por no poder cumplir naturalmente con sus necesidades de todo tipo, son situaciones que colocan al cuerpo y a la animalidad del escritor en un plano importante. Sin embargo, en tanto piensa, recuerda muertes, cegueras, oscuridades en la literatura y en otros escritores. Las preguntas de quines, cmo, por qu y cundo quedan flotando en el aire. Sus sentidos del olfato y del odo se agudizan para captar lo que le rodea. La narracin surge desde la mente del secuestrado quien debe pensar para seguir viviendo.
