Al regresar a casa una mañana tras una gira artística por Nueva Orleans, un músico itinerante descubre que su mujer duerme en su lecho con un espléndido veinteañero.

A partir de ese momento, su vida rueda cuesta abajo hasta el punto de hacerlo sospechar que ya no maneja las riendas de su existencia, que alguien más escribe el guion de sus días. Para encontrar explicaciones, inicia un viaje hasta el fin del mundo, donde llegará a conocer a Roberto Ampuero, un viejo escritor que ha perdido la memoria. En el camino bajará a los fondos insondables de la humanidad, para ver cómo el placer, el sexo, el poder y la política hacen su escena.

Una novela de intriga, donde todas las cer-tezas parecen desvanecerse frente a un mun-do incierto, en una danza seductora que no soltará al lector hasta la última página.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

Returning home one morning after a tour through New Orleans, a traveling musician finds his wife in her bed with a handsome twenty-something year-old.

From that moment on, his life starts to go downhill, so much so that he begins to wonder if he is no longer in charge of his existence, and that someone else is writing the script that is to become his life. In the hopes of finding some answers, he begins a journey to the end of the world, where he meets Roberto Ampuero, an old writer who has lost his memory. On his journey to the unfathomable bottom of humanity, he learns how pleasure, sex, power, and politics became protagonists.

An intriguing novel, where all certainties seem to vanish when facing an uncertain world; it all comes together in a seductive narrative dance that will take hold of its reader until the very last page.
