I Can Explain Everything

Xavier Velasco

NOVEL. ALFAGUARA, 2011. 744 PAGES.

This is the story of a twentieth century rogue, a cornered fugitive one day, a quack therapist the next and then, in a moment of carelessness, he becomes a visitor of wakes for complete strangers.

Joaquin is thirty, his life is in pieces and he's committed to writing a self-help book in which all he can do is offer lessons about the best ways to screw yourself over.

With biting dialogue and acid introspection, the characters in I Can Explain Everything populate a story full of interconnected regrets, beguiling resentment and common demons, where every turn might just lead to a chasm that you can't help but plunge into.

"I Can Explain Everything is a demonstration of how to write for

a wider public without having to cheapen the genre. It is a frank,

perspicacious novel about the weaker side of humanity, ambitious in its

style, and guided by a masterful hand. It is Literature in capital letters."
