The 3 best books from Greater Wyoming

Jordi Hurtado possesses the gift of immortality (makeup through, that then one gets out of bed first thing in the morning and can look like Nosferatur with a hangover). But what about Great Wyoming aboard programs of different depths since his degree in medicine is as anomalous as it is ultimately hilarious and even opportune to go through the lining of the journalistic code of ethics of the company on duty (almost always more crematological than deonto ... whatever).

The point is that I discovered it in the nineties and I never stopped seeing it. Not by want but by imposition. You turned on a channel and the Wyoming came out presenting program after program or cameo in the movie of the moment (the exploitation of the cult of the body is nothing new in the selection of presenters and actors). And I guess that's how I got the point. To such an extent that today I can remember even with a certain nosiness some of his worst shows ...

But this doctor, in addition to destroying television programs with his impossible vocalization, also writes his books. And that's what we have to talk about today ...

Top 3 Recommended Books from Greater Wyoming

The Fury and the Colors: Drugs, Politics and Rock & Roll

“My life has been picturesque, of course, but I don't see myself telling it as a linear story. For me the important thing is not what I have been living, but what is truly interesting is putting that life in the context of what was happening around it. " The young José Miguel has already finished university and begins his stage as a trainee doctor. Spain lived in a dictatorship; Going to Franco's university was quite an adventure. The son of a large middle-class family, he was in a hurry to go out and experience what was forbidden in this country of gray tones.

The foreigner, as a metaphor for freedom, and the show business, as an alternative to a technicolor existence, become options at your fingertips. Through them, Wyoming will discover another path that will change its destiny forever. The result is a memorial Wyoming book, but with a great protest and rally component, as he already had in his work We are not crazy, great success in bookstores.

In its pages there is an interesting portrait of the Transition, of the contradictions between the Spain heir to the recent dictatorship and the one that woke up to the modernity of the 80s. Drugs, sex, music ... are mixed with politics and struggle for finding a professional place of his own. A brief history of the Spain of the Transition told from the everyday characters. A peculiar book that mixes life, chronicle and politics.


On your knees, Monsoon!

Great Wyoming returns to bookstores through the front door. Son of the fifties, child of the sixties, rebellious and hippy in the seventies, the artist and highly original character known as Greater Wyoming had a childhood that today we would consider feral. The boys of that time spent their lives outdoors, in the street or in the meadow, mostly because they were annoying at home. Little Monzón was opening his eyes to life in a parched La Mancha town and in the Madrid neighborhood of Prosperidad, at that time a kind of independent kingdom or republic from the far center of the capital.

This book reminds us with extraordinary vividness and passion what life was like in the long final stretch of the Franco regime. An evocation at times crude, at times hilarious, where the author does not avoid anything, not even the defects that, as a child, adorned himself. A carefree fresco from the Spain of the time; when people crossed themselves when stepping on the street, when at the police station, in the barracks or in the parish they gave you certificates of good conduct, when from dawn to dusk the peasants left their lives in the drylands and the children, full of scabs and scabs. bruises, they did whatever they wanted until they came home, even filthy little Monzón didn't understand:
"I came from a place where the cock was not taught." From the sordid nursery school to the freedom of Ramiro, the relapse in the Augustinians. The Opus, the OJE, the Faculty of Medicine and the anti-Franco regime. And, later, abroad: Amsterdam, Ireland, London. Cities where sex and music were almost a religion.


We are not crazy

This book is the blow that will shake all the manga and enemies of progress in general. A ghost haunts La Moncloa, La Zarzuela, Brussels, the Vatican and the Bundesbank: the threat of a doctor who knows how to diagnose, a master of communication who knows how to explain his diagnoses. The devastating work of a genius who uses no weapons other than words, now that his memory still accompanies him, and some help from Wikipedia.

A story full of humor, irony and social criticism that tells us starkly why we are trapped in this terrible political and ideological moment. The definitive manifesto in which all the indignation, all the passion and all the sarcasm that today shakes the entire society beats.
