Somewhere in Spain, Marc, an avid reader of the Philips Agricultural Guide, pegs mathematical formulas to clotheslines on the roof of an 8-storey building. In London, the artist Jodorkovski spends hours painting tiny vignettes on chewing gum stuck to the pavements. In Miami, Harold spends his days devouring every box of Corn Flakes with his ex-wife's birthday as its sell-by-date. Meanwhile, in Corcubion, Spain, Anton is working on an audacious theory about the shared properties of barnacles and hard disks. These are some of the narrative strands that make up this arborescently structured novel, the second instalment in the Nocilla Trilogy, hailed as one of the most daring experiments in Spanish literature of recent years. Featuring walk-on parts for Julio Cortazar during the writing of Hopscotch and Martin Sheen in Apocalypse Now, and full of references to indie cinema, collage, conceptual art, practical architecture, the history of computers and the decadence of the novel, Nocilla Experience picks up where Nocilla Dream left off, presenting us with a hidden and exhilarating cartography of contemporary experience.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'The best novel I read in 2016. Thrillingly, incandescently brilliant.'
- Stuart Evers, author of If This is Home

'Like having multiple browser windows open, and compulsively tabbing between them.'
- Chris Power, Guardian

'A wonderful, mesmeric book.'
- Mat Davies, Buzz

'Fernandez Mallo occupies something of a similar position in the Spanish literary sphere as David Foster Wallace in terms of their shared insistence on the naturalization of the screen as an interface for the reception of reality.'
- Jorge Carrion, 4Columns

'A wonderful work of avant-gardist fiction - in the line of David Markson, Ben Marcus.'
- German Sierra, Asymptote
