'That transvestite didn't get dressed to go on parade or hunt, Manolo. He was seeking something more difficult to find. Peace of mind, perhaps. Or revenge, how do I know .... What was he seeking here, looking the complete transvestite, if he wasn't one, and right on the evening of the day of the Transfiguration? It gets stranger by the minute ....'
Translated by Peter Bush
