Item description for El Vuelo De La Libelula by Martin Page...
Fio Rgale es una joven pelirroja de veintids aos. Reside en un espacioso apartamento parisiense, adora el t sin azcar y la nieve, pinta cuadros y se gana la vida chantajeando al azar a hombres poderosos y adinerados: no necesita decirles qu han hecho ni qu informacin posee ella; uno de cada diez, paga. Sin duda lo lleva en los genes: su madre era atracadora de bancos y su padre un polica que, en lugar de detenerla, prefiri enamorarse de ella. Sin embargo, pese a que Fio se qued hurfana a los seis aos, ha sabido salir adelante.
Page, one of the bright new talents of French letters, adds to his sardonic outlook a soft poetic touch, as fragile as a dragonfly, in this amusing Parisian satire on art, fraud and life, centered around Fio Rgale, a young and beautiful red-haired art fraudster.
