Author Penelope Delgado publishes her second novel

Canarian author Penelope Delgado published her second novel, The Circus of Forgotten Talent, with which she is achieving great success not only in the Canary Islands but throughout the Spanish region and even beyond national borders . The book takes the reader to a cold and rainy autumn day in London in 1951, when Little Stone was born. Soon he is an orphan from a son, abandoned in the tent of a traveling circus, so he becomes part of a strange family. What is the real genius that lives in the depths of our existence waiting to be discovered?

In this way, Penelope Delgado invites readers to take a journey through the pages of this new book. It is a journey that is “very moving” because it has many characters and many settings, but above all “it is a journey into the human heart” because “what is outside, around us, is so beautiful, but also inside us.” is a wonderland”. “We are that rough diamond that most of the time nobody wants to polish, but we can’t wait for this practice to come from outside, rather we have to do it ourselves,” says the Canarian author who invites the reader. “Embrace that reality with light and shadow”.

Delgado publishes The Circus of Forgotten Talent with the Circulo Rojo editorial group and confirms that his first work was very personal as he needed to empty himself, to bring out what was inside him, himself. To fill with new things. And it has allowed him to grow as a writer to tackle this new creative project. Thus, she admits that she has been “very honest” when writing this second novel. «I have a lot of confidence in what I have done and I think the story has reached the general public; Somehow I have managed to make people feel identified with certain characters and they also see the need for that practice of looking inward,” says Canarian.

The idea for this second novel arose in the most difficult part of imprisonment. “Everyone went out to applause and when they went back to their homes and closed the windows, it felt like the world had stopped and there was only one thing to see inside.” He tells that he took that moment, apart from the misfortune, “as an opportunity to stop and analyze our path, because ordinarily we walk like automatons.”

“I feel that I have experienced growth on a literary level because I feel more comfortable when faced with a blank page and am able to examine more calmly”, explains the author, who has covered quite a few. Has also dared the character in this new plot. To shape this story, he was “inspired by man, what people would think when they had time to look inside themselves.” “I felt very calm writing this,” she admits and adds, although you always have to submit to the arrival of inspiration, it felt good. “I took it as an exercise in flexibility and it seemed like a wonderful moment despite everything,” he says.

After the rousing reception of her book at the Madrid Book Fair, she says she feels “overwhelmed” and “happy” because it has allowed her to sell many copies and that her book has had an impact in Mexico or even Canada. And in the midst of the promotion of his second novel, he already wants to deal with the third, for which he already has some ideas and for which he promises to be even more ambitious.
