Ana Pessoa · Bernardo P. Carvalho


Edgar runs at full speed and leaves everything behind: his family, his school, his friends. Today is the saddest day of his life because his grandfather disappeared, but it is also the happiest one because Joana kissed him for the first time.
Going along this road, Edgar stumbles on his reflections, on family lunches, on his friends’ laughter and on the long conversations with Joana. As he moves on, Edgar becomes increasingly bigger.
At one point he no longer fits inside his own body.
He becomes a monster. A continuous explosion.

A supergiant.
