Tony No One

The young national writer Andrés Montero has set his eyes on the circus' world, its ups and downs, its daily life and its characters. Mostly focusing on the inherited family tradition pass on from generation to generation with "Tony ninguno", a novel about oral narration and the importance of the stories we listen to and reproduce, but also those we keep silent about.
Summary

One day the son of an Arab whom nobody knew was abandoned at a village circus along with two ancient books: The Thousand and One Nights. A few years later, when the trapeze artist from the circus is injured, she learns those stories by heart and begins to narrate them to the public during an act never seen before. A magic show that will bring the books to life by confusing the abandoned child and herself in their roles within the worlds of reality and illusion.
