Mr Palomar is a delightful eccentric whose chief activity is looking at things.
He is seeking knowledge; 'it is only after you have come to know the surface of things that you can venture to seek what is underneath'.
Whether contemplating a fine cheese, a hungry gecko, a woman sunbathing topless or a flight of migrant starlings, Mr Palomar's observations render the world afresh.
