A group of readers gather to reconstruct the life of a Spanish poet, Eusebio, who disappeared at the outbreak of the Civil War. Each proposes his or her part of the story in a short chapter. Did he escape with his male lover to become a Muslim mystic? Was he "re-educated" by fascist psychologists to become a loyal follower of Franco? It is up to the reader to choose from these (and other) conflicting versions, to fill in the gaps, and generally rejoice in this playful celebration of the art of narrative.
