"The shadow of Cyrano" is a meditation on the human condition. The protagonist, without shame, takes off his clothes and brags to the reader. He then reviews his life, including his shadows and lights, and his regrets and discontent. The story of a life where hope and despair, daydream and reality and joy and sadness, mischief, goodness, virtue, and vileness coexisted. All of this is narrated by the serenity that comes from the years.
Jose Luis Aguilera has created a story in which the banners for stupidity, vanity, insincerity, contempt of others, lack of scruples, envy, and insincerity are lifted and praised. He also rescued various characters from his memory and they communicate their thoughts to you. They also undress themselves before the reader.
