Raúl Briceño

Colombian journalist (Bogotá 1946). After having to leave Colombia due to security reasons, he settled in Sydney, Australia, a country that received him with generosity. In these lands, Raúl managed to consolidate his dream of becoming a writer and, by giving free rein to his imagination, has written several books, among which stands out In Memoriam, a beautiful story of his brother, Manuel, a character he loved deeply. With the exuberant beauty of the Colombian tropic as a backdrop, he presents his latest novel La Melliza, a wonderful story of fiction that far surpasses reality.


About Book

The stories in Raul Briceno's new collection could hardly be more varied. From the tale of an apparently fortunate young man who, tragically, experiences a life-changing illness on the brink of triumph; to that of a virile young gardener who causes havoc amongst the bored housewives of a provincial town; to that of the mysterious waters owned by a church, which seem to be causing a string of miraculous pregnancies amongst local women; to that of the grief and fear felt by parents whose young daughter fails to return on time from a night out with her friends-Briceno's subjects range from the apparently tragic to the uproariously comic, and his style shifts to match his topic. Yet despite the variety of Briceno's moods and topics, all his tales have one feature in common: each of them ends with a shocking, funny or simply astonishing twist.
