Manuel Rivas, one of the literary references of our country, continues to analyze today’s world from literature. In Chispas, his return to children’s and youth literature, he proposes an innovative way of approaching youth, their problems and, ultimately, the dynamics of today’s society. Ricas, author of titles such as ¿Qué me qué me, amor? o The carpenter’s pencil, tells an allegory of the modern world. That world where speed and consumption drive us crazy. Where social networks can with us and where fame and fashion is the goal of every generation.
