The creature Manolito arrived one day. He knocked on the door. He wanted to come in. The creature Manolito could be anyone, it could be me, it could be you. The creature Manolito arrived one day and asked to be let in. Nonetheless the people who live in the house don’t agree with him, and they try to talk him out, hoping he will leave. Weird, and apparently helpless, the creature Manolito keeps insisting. Gustavo Roldán creates this tale, adopting the point of view of one of the people who live in the house: throughout the book, this person will tell both to the reader and the creature Manolito what he thinks, and what he believes this creature should do. But most of all the author draws a dishevelled, dear, and in the end irresistible character. The creature Manolito has arrived to stay. And his story can be read as a metaphor of many situations than we witness in our daily life.
