Resumen del Libro:
The surreal Fellini-like extravagance of this novel flows from the imagination that belongs to the movie and movie director who is the author. Flights of fancy and turns of pathos adorn this story about a blind singer of popular songs. A dazzlingly brilliant book that memorizes the reader, this is the first volume of a projected series constituting a family saga in twentieth-century Madrid. Winner of the Cafe Gijon Prize in 1991.
