Romance of the Goblin That Writes Me My Novels

Hernán Rivera Letelier

SHORT NOVEL. PLANETA, 2005

After a solid and successful body of work in fiction, this Chilean writer brings us a delicious piece in which he tells in simple but rich language the story of the goblin who has always appeared magically—and sometimes in dreams—to dictate to him what he has to write.This is the same goblin who long ago made household objects disappear (“they went up in smoke” his mother used to say), and to whom any unexplained event was attributed. His is a brief novel, a fable, a tale, and an allegory of creativity that often seems to sail through a different world, innocent, beautiful, pleasant.
