The Entanglement of the Bag and Life

In The Entanglement of the Bag and Life, the reader will find an old acquaintance - the anonymous detective and main character in the parody series "The Mystery of the Enchanted Crypt", "The Labyrinth of the Olives" and "The Adventure of the Powder Room", who for many years after his release from the insane asylum leads the righteous life of a conscious citizen. A chance meeting with his comrade and cellmate from the penitentiary involves him in another incredible predicament against his will, but in the name of friendship. He takes up his own investigation, pulling loose threads from the tangled orb, and thus suddenly uncovers the plans of an international terrorist preparing an assassination attempt in Barcelona against Angela Merkel herself.

The Entanglement of the Bag and Life is another funny story with countless unexpected and comical situations on the edge of absurdity, which came from the remarkable satirical pen of Eduardo Mendoza.

About the Author
Eduardo  Mendoza

Eduardo Mendoza is a Spanish novelist, born in Barcelona on 11 January 1943. He studied law in the first half of the 1960s and lived in New York between 1973 and 1982, working as interpreter for the United Nations.

In 1975 he published his very successful first novel, "La verdad sobre el caso Savolta" (The Truth about the Savolta Case), where he shows his ability to use different resources and styles. The novel is considered a precursor to the social change in the Spanish post-Franco society and the first novel of the transition to democracy. He describes the union fights from the beginning of the 20th century, showing the social, cultural and economic reality of the Barcelona at the time. A year later he was awarded the Critic Prize. Within Mendoza's work stands the saga of Ceferino, a peculiar character, a detective locked up in a mental hospital. The first of these novels, "El misterio de la cripta embrujada" (The Mystery of the Bewitched Crypt, 1979) is a parody with hilarious moments mixing detective stories with gothic narrative. In the second novel of the saga, "El laberinto de las aceitunas" (The Labyrinth of the Olives, 1982) he confirms his talent as parodist; the novel is one of his most successful works. The third (and last) novel of the saga, "La aventura del tocador de señoras" (The Adventure of the Powder Room) was published in 2002. His most acclaimed novel is probably "La ciudad de los prodigios" (The City of the Prodigies, 1986), about the social and urban evolution of Barcelona between the Universal Expositions of 1888 and 1929. The newspaper El País published two of his novels by instalments, "Sin noticias de Gurb" (No News from Gurb, 1990) and "El último trayecto de Horacio Dos" (The Last Traject of Horacio Dos, 2001).
