Una mujer se enamora de un vecino por cómo cuida las plantas de su terraza. Un hombre organiza una fiesta con todos sus seres queridos para celebrar el final de una larga enfermedad. Una niña acompaña a su madre a ver pisos que nunca podrán permitirse comprar y un padre lleva a su hija adoptada a conocer a su madre biológica...

En estos relatos hay amor y desamor. Hay ausencia y culpa. Hay esperanza. Están los que celebran el hoy y lo que está por venir, y otros que prefieren vivir en las expectativas, donde se sienten protegidos. Los que pueden, olvidan. O no del todo. O no siempre. Algunos no creen saber qué es existir ni desear, ni qué hace que una vida sea una vida. Pero ¿alguien lo sabe?

Las historias de La gente no existe narran lo íntimo, aquello que solo somos capaces de contar en voz baja, lo que nos ocurre cada día. Y nos deslizamos por ellas comprobando que «el camino de la emoción sin impostura que ha transitado Ferrero es uno de los que lleva a la gran literatura» -Manuel Vilas

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

A woman falls in love with a neighbor because of how he takes care of the plants on his terrace. A man organizes a party with all his loved ones to celebrate the end of a long illness. A girl accompanies her mother to see apartments that they can never afford to buy, and a father takes his adopted daughter to meet her biological mother...
 
In these stories there is love and heartbreak. There is absence and guilt. There is hope. There are those who celebrate today and what’s come, and others who prefer to live in expectations, where they feel protected. Those who can, forget. Or not at all. Or not always. Some do not believe they know what it is to exist or wish, or what makes a life a life. But does anyone know?
 
The stories in People Don’t Exist narrate the intimate, what we are only capable of telling in whispers, what happens to us every day. And we slide through them, verifying that "the path of raw emotion that Ferrero has traveled is one that leads to great literature." -Manuel Vilas
