San Elvis, ruega por nosotros

An ode to journalism and the art of storytelling, to the and to literature, to rigor and nonchalance.

Catedral, 2021

This book is not a memoir, it's not a stock of anecdotes of thirty years of journalism, it's not a selection of articles, it's not a nostalgic ode to journalism, but it is, without a doubt, all the above​.

En each chapter, Arenós what he wrote years ago. From anecdote to reflection, the reader is caught like a fly on honey. An ode to journalism and the art of storytelling, to the trade and to literature, to rigour and nonchalance
