Highlights The Green Ballpoint Pen


A total publishing phenomenon

El bolígrafo de gel verde is a detailed, painstaking, magnificent and anguished description of how to waste one’s time, and, consequently, their life.

A publishing phenomenon long before its publication: Eloy Moreno decided to publish and distribute the book himself. After almost a year demonstrating that the book had a market (it sold more than 3,000 copies), the publishers Espasa grew interested and published it.

It is a story that hooks, seduces, moves, teaches and evokes memories, written in a skilful, original and easy to read manner.

The novel is so quotidian, so real, that the reader rapidly feels himself identifying with the characters.
