Cover of the book Almuerzo de vampiros
By Carlos Franz.
Almuerzo de vampiros es una parábola acerca de los cambios, a veces ridículos y hasta brutales, que la madurez impone sobre los ideales de la juventud. Y también es una sátira sobre la obsesión contemporánea por la inmortalidad: esos hombres y mujeres rabiosamente bellos y prósperos que quisieran vivir como si no pudieran morir. Como si fueran vampiros.
