In the middle of the Nevada desert stands a solitary poplar tree, covered in hundreds of pairs of shoes.
Further along U.S. Route 50, a lonely prostitute falls in love with a collector of found photographs.
In Las Vegas, an Argentine man builds a peculiar monument to Jorge Luis Borges.
On the run from the authorities, Kenny takes up permanent residence in the legal non-place of Singapore International Airport.
These are some of the narrative strands that make up this arborescently structured novel, hailed as one of the most daring experiments in Spanish literature of recent years.
Full of references to indie cinema, collage, conceptual art, practical architecture, the history of computers and the decadence of the novel, Nocilla Dream finds great beauty in emptiness and reveals something essential about contemporary experience.
