Is it possible to sketch the biography of a ghost who dwells, mysteriously, on the margins of Argentine literature? The testimony of the famous musician Andrés Calamaro serves as a guide for the sketch of a portrait, tentative and present, of the eccentric writer and critic C.E. Feiling (1961-1997). The voice of remembrance, even in the tenacity of oblivion, contributes not only to the sketch of an exquisite writer but also presents an artist in his intimacy, who not only speaks of his great companion in his adventures yet also bears witness to a bohemian and cultural-political history that seems distant. Meanwhile, two friends, like a pair of wild detectives, snoop through the remnants of the Feiling library (1961-1997) in search of the traces of a cult author, a punk dandy who sailed against the tide of national letters and left behind a work and a brief but accurate life.
