Can the story of an eccentric family become a symbol for a country or an era? Humor and tragedy combine within these pages to form a portrait, at once scathing and sentimental, of a not-so-typical Spanish family, and the story of their fall. This narrative is intertwined with a story seemingly worlds apart: Johann Sebastian Bach's famed 350-kilometer journey on foot to take the place of his former teacher. Together, it is an escape formed through fiction.


"A devastating legacy because what Carlos Pardo describes is the disintegration of a Spanish middle class family in developmental policy." — Juan Ángel Juristo, ABC

"Carlos Pardo has written a brilliant novel…" — Ernesto Ayala-Dip, El País
