He's proven it and proves it again in this hilarious, fast-paced story animated by her proverbial grace and his wit. Marco Denevi and some mysterious alter ego narrate a vast chronicle in an unusual way: offering the details of that kind of saga shredded in the articles of an encyclopedia. Articles that the reader can put together in diverse narrative systems, advancing successively, or alternating their advance in jumps, crosses, combinations... Thus, they will compose the story of an Argentine family that begins with the arrival in these lands of a Manuel the Adelantadito, conqueror of the West Indies, and continues with the appearance of other Manuels in colonial times, during the Emancipatory Revolution, through the years of the Tyranny... Several real Manuels or incarnations of a single, mythical everlasting Manuel? In the middle of the 19th century, the family acquired its name: Argento, and the actor entered a new, laughingly symbolic dimension, always fascinating.
