The writer who committed suicide when his novel got published


He had such a bright mind, but a tormented soul. He used to say living over 25 years old is madness and he kept his word.

The same day Andrés Caicedo, a young Colombian writer, received a volume of ¡Que viva la música! he decided to end his life taking 60 pills of secobarbital.

This book tells the story of a young blonde woman trying to find some sense in her life, somewhere to belong. Maybe a reflection of how the author felt himself, but who am I to judge?
