Días de Nevada es una historia hecha de historias, a modo de caja china, que nos muestra cómo cada experiencia que vivimos, cada vínculo creado entre las personas más allá de las distancias temporales y espaciales, cada emoción que nos impacta, cada amenaza que combatimos permanece indeleble. Y nos convierte en lo que somos.

Antonio Lozano, Qué Leer

«Una novela híbrida, entre poética y narrativa, que camina desde l. a. crónica a los angeles imagen lírica».
