Spanish edition of Ivan Klíma’s Láska a smetí.

Description from the English edition:

The narrator of Love and Garbage has temporarily abandoned his work-in-progress – an essay on Kafka – and exchanged his writer’s pen for the orange vest of a Prague road-sweeper. As he works, he meditates on Czechoslovakia, on Kafka, on life, on art and, obsessively, on his passionate and adulterous love affair with the sculptress Daria. Gradually he admits the impossibility of being at once an honest writer and an honest lover, and with that agonising discovery comes a moment of choice.
