Onda Corta is a short novel written in stream-of consciousness form in 50 short sections.

Relation of the novel to the artist’s practice

"Onda Corta is a delirious work, with a demanding and magnetic prose, by Pablo Helguera. It is a literary performance of different forms of talk - at once sleepless, unpredictable and entirely dedicated to the exaltation of idiosyncratic subjects; uncontrollable and exposed. [...] Onda Corta creates improbable assemblies in scenes of material and metaphoric transmutations."

- Roberto Tejada, prologue.
