Download E-books Dormir al sol PDF

By Adolfo Bioy Casares

El tema de los angeles imposibilidad de los angeles relación amorosa, l. a. inserción de un mundo fantástico en los angeles realidad, los angeles especulación filosófica y el humorismo distanciador son elementos recurrentes en Adolfo Bioy Casares que, en mayor o menor medida, se dan también cita en Dormir al Sol.
