The 1002nd night

There is a tale written by Edgar Allan Poe in which Scherezade tells the history about a world where strange things happen. In the tale that world is ours, and that narration has as a consequence Scherezade's death.

"Un mundo raro" is something like Scherezade's last story: it talks about urban violence, corruption, t. v., and all that stuff which one would like to forget. But it is there. One likes it or not.
