In book Miguel Bosé retraces the most important stages of his life as a boy with memories that tell of the love-hate he experienced towards his father, an authoritarian and successful figure who died in 1996. Many of the memories described in the volume speak of their conflictual relationship: “When I saw that he was sick, after the malaria vaccine he got before a safari in Mozambique, my father said to me: ‘Don’t be a girl, get up and walk like a man and stop getting dizzy or you will find out what a real slap ‘“.

In his biography, Miguel Bosé tells how his father struggled to accept his being different from others and how worried he was about the possibility that his son was homosexual: “My mother asked him what the problem was with my reading a lot. ‘That the baby will be gay, Lucia! For sure!’. My father wanted me to be a man like God commands: a ‘macho’, a hunter, a womanizer“.

Among the memories of the singer there is one also linked to his mother, Lucia Bosé, died last year from Covid.

The complicated and conflicting relationship with the father figure, however, did not prevent Bosé from feeling at times admiration for the man, an internationally renowned bullfighter. The figure of the father is in fact remembered on the cover of the book, where a very young Bosé appears dressed as a bullfighter.
