Callate nina es una cronica de amor a partir del rompimiento: drogas y sexo. Rodolfo Naro nos cuenta de manera delirante como el amor destruye, y el odio une a los que se aman. La muerte repentina del padre de la protagonista, al que nunca conocio, la obliga a contar su historia, desde su infancia al lado de su madre drogadicta y cristiana, el apasionante mundo del ballet, y sus amantes, a quienes -como la Carmen de Bizet- utiliza y desdena como una triste forma de sobrevivir, hasta su encuentro con Antonio, hijo de un militar torturador de la Guerra Sucia en Mexico. La novela tiene como telon de fondo La Habana en pleno Periodo Especial, la ciudad de Napoles asediada por la Camorra y, sobre todo, la ciudad de Mexico retratada por personajes que viven en el abismo. Un relato en el que estan escondidas la culpa y la venganza, el miedo a vivir y el deseo llevado hasta los limites de la realidad y la pasion.
