A lonely man sits alone on the terrace of a Parisian bistro in the Montparnasse district. In a mild trance provoked by alcohol, he begins to soliloquize in silence. In his inner monologue flow memories, whether vivid or bookish, caustic observations on the trifles that take place on the terrace, as well as a host of sharp poetic-philosophical lucubrations that, full of moments of grace, exude a very fine humor in keeping with the beautiful lightness of his enterprise: having an aperitif. Reaching the intimate zenith of the paradoxical lucidity that alcohol provides, our dreamer recreates those profound minutes in which drunkenness creates the illusion of dancing in perfect harmony with the world around us, on the tense rope of digression.

Metaphysics of the appetizer is a small vitalist and erudite treatise that ingeniously scrutinizes one of the few moments that our accelerated world still reserves for contemplation and creative leisure. A static novel that, nevertheless, surprises us with an unexpected final event. A therapeutic little work to drink in small sips.
