In this multifaceted book - a mix of essays, story and autobiography – Sergio González Rodríguez looks over his life and makes an inventory of his interests and obsessions, all summed up with key words.
The Novelized Theory of Me is an essay which is both fragmented and comprehensive at the same time. It explores the relationship between music and writing, between dreams and creation. It looks into these themes through philosophy, ideological history, science, psychology, literature, art and even pop culture; all with a huge number of reference points. These constantly mix with passages about the author’s own life.
