About the Book

El Demonio y la señorita Prym es una historia simple que tiene como centro el significado de la vida y la dirección espiritual”.

-The Guardian

Una comunidad dividida por la codicia, la cobardía y el miedo. Un hombre perseguido por los fantasmas de un pasado doloroso. Una mujer joven en búsqueda de la felicidad. Siete días, un periodo breve durante el cual el bien y el mal librarán una batalla decisiva, y cada personaje decidirá a cuál de los dos bandos pertenece. El pequeño pueblo de Viscos es el escenario de esta perturbadora pelea. Con la llegada de un extranjero, el pueblo entero se convierte en cómplice de una trama perversa que marcará la historia de sus habitantes para siempre.

El extranjero ha viajado desde muy lejos y necesita encontrar la respuesta a una pregunta que lo atormenta: ¿los seres humanos son, en esencia, buenos o malos? Novela evocativa y de suspenso, El Demonio y la señorita Prym captura un momento en nuestra lucha diaria por el autoconocimiento y lanza la pregunta en la que todos nos hemos detenido a pensar en algún momento: ¿Cuál es la esencia de los seres humanos? 


The Devil and Miss Prym is a simple tale, with the meaning of life and spiritual guidance at its core.”

-- The Guardian

A community divided by greed, cowardice, and fear. A man haunted by the ghost of a painful past. A young woman in search of happiness. Seven days, a short period during which good and evil will wage a decisive battle, and each character will decide on which of the two sides they belong. The small village of Viscos is the setting for this disturbing fight. With the arrival of a foreigner, the entire town becomes an accomplice in a perverse plot that will forever mark the history of its inhabitants.

The foreigner has traveled from far away and needs to find the answer to a question that torments him: Are human beings, in essence, good or evil? At once an evocative novel and a suspenseful page-turner, The Devil and Miss Prym captures one moment in our eternal struggle for self-knowledge, asking a question that all of us have stopped to reflect on at some point: What is the essence of the human being?
