Barcelona is the literary myth at the center of this novel populated by peculiar characters. Among the narrators are a nameless foreigner, a transvestite psychoanalyst, a girl who says she is Marilyn Monroe's heir, a blind man who leaves a mysterious manuscript when he dies, and many more who share their stories as they converge in a final endless party.Barcelona como mito literario es el centro de esta novela poblada por una fauna peculiar  que converge en una interminable fiesta final. En torno al narrador, un extranjero sin nombre, orbitan un travesti psicoanalista, una chica que se dice heredera de Marilyn, un ciego que al morir deja un manuscrito misterioso, un escritor que padece el síndrome tan barcelonés (por vilamatiano) de Bartleby, un profeta que pierde dinero en los juegos de azar, una mujer experta en las nuevas teorías sexuales y un hombre enfermo de celos.
