Daniel Jimenez recovers from ‘The private life of the heroes”


The writer, Daniel Jimenez, who recovers from his book of short stories, ‘The private life of the heroes” (the Galaxy, Gutenberg’s press), he deplored the fact that the arrival of the coronavirus in Spain has increased, “the crispación,” and he believes that everything that has happened in the last few months has deteriorated in many of the policy”.

“It was that he did not think that this was not going to get better and stronger, and it was hesitant from the very beginning. But what has happened to put additional pressure on many of the political, the people who have entrusted to us, and this has led to an environment the brutality of his,” he said in an interview with the author, madrid.

Spain believes that the current situation required him to “be more united and be more supportive, especially when a country cracks”. “If you’re raised in a environment of crispación policy, violence and aggression, and it made me face the fact that, in a time of economic crisis, a lot of people are behaving worse than expected,”he said.

In any case, Jimenez contends that, with regard to the writing, you don’t know exactly where you’re going,” then the implications for the future of coronaviruses. This is why he is concerned, it has already been explained that it does not have among its plans to make a film about the confinement, it does not believe that it is going to change their “vision” of the writer.

‘The private life of the heroes” is a collection of stories, written a few years ago for a part of a larger effort –among the medium-sized one, and other publications have seen the light of the two novels, ‘Cocaine’, and ‘The two deaths of Ray Is– and what it now takes, with a few changes. The writer has taken the opportunity to rewrite some of the accounts, deleting others, and adding some new ones.

“In the end, it’s a film with a character in crisis, in the age range of 30 to 40 years, and many of them are people that I have been finding over the past ten years,” he said. The reports of this work have a common thread between them, with the exception of a common ficcionado, which gets its name From the Hammer– but it isl is the result of a generation who may come to “feel that they are identified as having difficulties with“it’s a day-to-day basis.

That’s the title, it brings to these accounts, in the name of the ‘heroes’ of the day-to-day life, because these are the people who “come out ahead, in spite of it all, some of the issues where there is a lack of courage to overcome them. “It is said that the hero is always on a mission, but it seems to me that it is also the exercise of individual responsibility,” he argued.

Separation of married couples, disagreements between the parents and the children, or the precarious nature of the work, are just some of the topics that are covered in this book that is part of a larger effort that does not recognize the ‘losers’. “These are the characters that you will fail, and you don’t get what they want, even yearn to, but did not intend to emphasize this sense of failure in a generation,” he stated.

In particular, the author’s self, that regrets, that sort of “wrong generation” that suffered a lot of people of his generation –and one that has already been depicted in her earlier novel ‘Cocaine’–. “It is clear that the if you sold something that did not come to the house. There has been a misunderstanding of the structural, and we have seen that there encajamos of all, not all of them, we’re going to have the same opportunities, and he.


It is for this reason that is part of a larger effort already seeks to “hold up a bit more with his next work, the understanding that “this is an important time to stay on the sidelines”. “With all that was in the past, it is not sufficient to rely on with the lives that are anonymous, and it’s more important to have a right to intervention, in fact,” he added.

The ‘for’ in this new work by Rafael Chirbes, the author who had passed away the creator of soap operas such as ‘the Crematorium’, or ‘On the margins’. “I am very mitômano, and it’s amazing how he has written on the woes of the Spanish company, since it turned out, the Civil War, until to-day. I’m going to go out there, see what comes out,” he concluded with a smile.
