Publisher's Summary

Electrodomésticos is an elegant yet powerful depiction of the post Spanish Civil War era, where class divisions lay bare those who can afford to eat a decent meal and those who can not. Josu is an inexperienced electrician, tasked with installing an oven in the home of an upper-class Basque couple. He’s completely captivated. But the couple, though they seem to have it all, are in a prison of their own. Mesmerizing in its subtlety and sinister intimations, Electrodomésticos reveals the poverty and loneliness of this era.

Can you say "inane?"

If I were offered $10,000 to do it I could not possibly write a story more inane than this one. It had nothing! What was the point?

Wtf?

I don't even know what to say about this story. But whatever I come up with, it won't be very flattering.
