    A novel by Pablo Carbonell fell into my hands, actor, singer and street journalist in shows like ‘Caiga que caer’. A satire that invited me to immerse myself in its pages with a certain curiosity, “The names of imbeciles are written everywhere”. I was not deceived. That’s why I chose to call the author, knowing that concentrating on the conversation would be an impossible mission, super active as he is, so we went to eat on a terrace where the decoration invites calm and relaxation. reflection. The artist tells how he entered the sixties. “Very well, it seems to me better to achieve them than not to do them. I want to share with those who might be afraid of turning 60, that when I take a picture of myself and see it, I think that I am actually that age, but inside I feel like a child. Pablo Carbonell talks to us about his role as a father and the dangers of social networks. “It’s the first drug children take. The addiction to loss of reality that the networks subject themselves to is brutal, because it makes young people never satisfied with their lives, that’s why they need to escape and when that escape they can achieve it easily, bye very well,” he said.

    The artist recognizes that “we live in an emergency” and that he does not preach by example. “I am a victim of stress. Besides, I was not programmed to lie in a hammock sunbathing. I am incapable of losing myself in contemplating a painting, unless I am with people, trying to have a drink or listen to music” and reveals his new healthy life. “Now I walk a lot in the mountains, I haven’t drunk alcohol since confinement, not even a beer, that’s why confinement has done me good.” Precisely, it was during confinement when he wrote ‘The names of fools are written everywhere’, a black novel that I had in mind over 30 years ago about a man who is on death row because of a woman and has a lot of him. “There is a character who looks a bit like María, my wife, and when she read it she came to scold me. But when she told her it was fiction, she calmed down” , he says.
