"Ariza" narrates the journey of the Medina family through time, mirrors and shadows that escape in lost memories. They ascend with the smoke of the locomotive of an old train, beyond the Castilian moor; they descend to the enigmatic nameless city, very close to our ears; they cross the river at its ebb to meet again at its beginning.

Proud fields of bread, white factories, mansions with shields and stones will greet Miguel Medina. He is barely a child and is scared, he arrives at the Big Station locked in a box of oranges, smelling sour. Don Eugenio Escudero plans new railway lines, dreaming of progress. They saw each other for a moment, through a broken glass, they outlined silences and reproaches, the last beat sounds, revived.

Boy and engineer would meet again through a woman, Lucia, imperishable. She will reign on the other side of the nameless city, in a farm called Ariza, foreign, while her children search abroad for the answer to the Castilian past. Through wars and discords, the traveler drains a cup of bitter wine.

Carlos Medina, the heir, will return as a hero without loot. He returns alone, with a gramophone and his paintings. He smiles, slowly, in that Holy Week of 1930 in which everyone watches the procession, in which the entire city sings a salve and waits for the next train.

Maybe it will come this time.


Isabel del Río. She was born in Madrid and lived in this city until the beginning of his university studies. She does these in Valladolid, a magical place whose memories have accompanied her through landscapes and time: she has always behaved like a nomad and has always felt good meeting new towns and people, but she has never forgotten the cold Castilian nor its legendary stones. and often dreams of embracing those soft mists again. Currently, she is a professor of Geography and History at an institute in Madrid; He has returned to his origins after working in Seville and Segovia, in Murcia and Huelva ... He combines teaching with writing: “Painters without signature” is his latest project.

Martin Cid. He was born in Oviedo, studied journalism and has collaborated for numerous magazines with stories and essay material, as well as for the Instituto Cervantes with a novel ("Through the Mirror"). Since she began to try her luck in the field of the novel, has not given up in its attempts. “Ariza” is his first published work. With a dark theme, his books become clearer and diluted as the plot loses meaning or until it acquires it in a new way. Always changing, words are deformed to adapt to a foolish, elusive context, mirror of a reality that deforms itself and then finds itself.
