Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 849428309X, Paperback)

Gabriel Ariz is an art professor relentlessly pursued by misfortune—his only daughter dies in a traffic accident, his wife decides to divorce him, and on top of it all, he is diagnosed with a severe kidney disease that will put him into unending hemodialysis sessions and force him to quit his job at the university.

Solitude, illness, failure, and the will to carry on despite it all are themes central to Gabriel's account of his experience—a quest for survival and a coming to terms with oneself.

Winner of the 2008 Premio Tiflos de Novela on its original publication in Spain.

Juan Gracia Armendáriz is a Spanish fiction writer and contributor to many Spanish newspapers.
