Alfredo Bryce Echenique is one of the greatest figures in Latin American literature. He currently resides in Peru, his country of origin. He has worked as a professor at various French universities, an activity which he combined with his writing.

With his novels and short stories, Echenique has created one of the most original narrative universes in Spanish literature at the end of the twentieth and beginning of the twenty-first century.

The discovery of freedom in Paris, in the sixties, after leaving Peru with the purpose of becoming a writer; the figure of the adventurous father, and Proust's mother-in-law and owner of a smooth artistic sensibility, trace in this book the lines that connect Bryce with his past.

Freedom, friendship and loyalty are words of great significance in the work and personality of the author, and in this book they acquire a specific importance. The evocation of experiences, love and a few unusual events, sprinkled with humor, romanticism and nostalgia, trace, on the other hand, a sentimental itinerary in which affection always prevails over ideas.
