Product description


A powerful, harrowing and profound read brimming with literature. . . . A very literary novel, excellently well-written. --Javier Velasco Oliaga

Castán s intense literary style reflects his advanced studies in philosophy; his prose is dense with serious reflection, poetry, weaving his words with those of writers and thinkers such as Primo Levi, Marguerite Duras, Emil Cioran, and Paul Celan. Bad Light is chock-full of lines to be underlined about love, literature, art, loneliness, friendship, death, and old age. --Fjords Review

The first novel by a distinguished Spanish writer mainly known for his short stories turns out to be a primer in existential thinking about death and dying. . . Much of the action of the novel is internal and psychological and plays out against the intellectual background of writers like Marguerite Duras, whose book The War is freely alluded to and provides a pattern for the triangle of narrator, the deceased Jacobo, and Nadia. . . A meditative and philosophical 'thriller'. --Kirkus Reviews
