Razlog pošasti Rafael Arguljol

Ovo je priča o gradu u kom se stanovnici iznenada razbolevaju od nepoznate bolesti, bolesti koja isto tako iznenada nestaje bez objašnjenja. No svi hrle da je zaborave kao da se nikad nije dogodila. Vlada briše sve dokaze o njenom postojanju...

Aluzije na svet u kome danas živimo su jasne: umor Zapada, sveopšte odumiranje humanosti, filozofija potrošnje, licemerje medija, politike i društvenih normi...

Velike pošasti mogu da nas dovedu do napretka kako u našem osećaju individualne slobode i odgovornosti, tako i kolektivne ili, naprotiv, da nas gurnu unazad, kaže pisac Rafael Arguljol...
