Story The story has got a metarealístic style. The main characters are a passenger/navigator suicide and a narrative voice. Both of them have a strange relationship, which Mañach Antoni says in the article. Manach says it is a story that leaves many open questions that only time can answer. The story is briefly explained as follows: there is a navigator that launches the back of a mirror. At first he does so with the support of the voiceover and then without them. The passenger from the bottom of the mirror lives several stories and changed from mirror to mirror to explain new stories. It seems that from the mirror is an observer of metarealístic worlds. Thus, there are people like Agapito Sansegundo, who grazed sheep in Argentina and wanted to be poet, Jessica an F1 driver stabbed by a failed novelist or jerks, big heads in a crystal ball. Antoni Mañach points out the importance of the narrator, according the words of Wim Wenders and Peter Handke without oral culture the humanity may be lost. By the way, within the same conductive voice asks if he can be a guide and director of travel literature or a notary and stress hiding stories with adjectives, metaphors, etc. Another aspect that deals are Mañach mirrors. Freixenet mirrors are not what Lewis Carroll tells us, inducing to dream states and esoteric environments, etc. Balconies are "open windows" private universes, which allow you to create mythologies beyond reality. Speaking of mirrors Mañach means Dziga Vertov and his film A man with a movie camera. Records whether this view of reality that mirrors give Freixenet book is not the logic of recording eye Vertov film. A look, an angle, unorthodox reveals a new reality. Does this according to him, this vision, a relationship with the "de-familiarization" cutting edge, allowing new visual experiences. He also wonders if the mirrors are used to send the world a critical view of privacy. In short, The navigator of the background mirror suggests, certainly, many questions and, as Professor Mañach review, should be read carefully to understand the answers.
