Summary
Publisher Annotation: The new novel by Ray Loriga: 2017 Alfaguara Novel Prize winner and one of the most singular writers on the Spanish-language storytelling scene.A teenager and an unresolved story that will mark his future: an original, innovative book with a cinematographic approach. Saturday, Sunday tells a story and then tells it again many years later. In the first, a teenager tells the lurid tale of an event from the previous summer. He and his friend Chino go out one Saturday and hook up with a young Latin American waitress. The night seems to be going well, until everything takes a turn and ends in disaster, or perhaps in tragedy: it is a fateful Saturday that the narrator refuses to remember. But after every Saturday, there comes a Sunday.More than two decades later, a story begins that is the same, yet different. It is the Sunday of Halloween at an American School on the outskirts of Madrid. Parents take their children dressed as monsters and share hot dogs, hamburgers, and too many beers. That teenager is now a man in his forties, divorced, and carrying the weight of many bad decisions. During the party he is attending with his daughter, he meets an unknown woman wearing a mask, and they share an apparently trivial conversation that quickly returns him to that night. He must accept that it is finally Sunday. The day that obliges us to unpack, accept, and maybe even redeem what has happened in the past. Saturday, Sunday is a Rashomon?Kurosawa?s legendary film?an investigation, a final judgment. And time, the only judge. Spain, 224pp
