This is a disturbing and exhilarating novel in which the anonymous protagonist, a dealer offering a range of the latest chemicals designed to make consumers forget everything, finds his past and present, along with his own identity, disintegrate under the effects of these 'drugs of oblivion'. Set in the very near future, this novel is very much in the style of dystopias like Orwell's 1984, while also evoking the bewildering visual universe of Blade Runner.The protagonist moves througha world of cynical consumerism, whether in Arizona, South East Asia or Europe, under the constant scrutiny of the Company in whose products he deals. The alienating urban environment that surrounds him intensifies the feeling that he does not belong to any one country or place. His life is spent in transit on deserted motorways or in crowded airports and anonymous hotel rooms, punctuated by business contacts with similarly nameless customers and random, meaningless sexual encounters. There is no place for guilt or personal responsibility in a society in which one's acts are easily forgotten thanks to drugs designed to erase all memories from the mind.The protagonist speaks with a disarming humor born of his detachment from life, personal relationships and the very consequences of his actions. What makes this vision so alarming is the fact that both its observations and its conclusions are entirely believable.… (mere)

An unnamed man travels the globe selling a mind-wiping drug to people who need to forget unpleasant experiences. Cult Spanish author Loriga takes us on a journey filled with sex, drugs and rambling nihilism. Reads like Houellebecq, but without the sense of humour. ( )

Me lo regaló Pablo el día de mi boda. No entiendo nada. No me gustó el libro, ni el estilo demasiado redundante. Es sobre un agente viajero que se dedica a distribuir productos para erradicar la memoria. Acaso una parte mía en este agente, pero en un pasado que ya no veo como propio ( )

Loriga deals in the classic Burroughs-ian tropes of the Company and the Agent, who is dangerously addicted to the substance he is selling, apparently to suppress the details of a long-lost love affair.
