“El pueblo que votó que la tierra era planatierra plana” | Rudyard Kipling & Adrià Ferrer Marquès) | Avenauta, Spain | 80pp | 16.5 x 20 cm
A group of friends are stopped for speeding up, on a straight road with no one else around. They soon discover it’s a classic speed trap that the magistrate of the town delights in using. In the bench, his tone and sarcasm against the accused launch a conspiracy to humiliate the man. Affairs are set in motion, and consequences will go much farther and bigger than anyone imagined. In this satirical novel, Kipling parodies politics and the media in a story about a village whose pompous Justice of the Peace persuades (and bribes) the people towards his false way of thinking.
