Publisher Comments:

Bajo la forma indita de un diario de una experiencia misteriosa e inicitica, Tabucchi ha escrito su ms hondo homenaje a Portugal. En un estado entre la conciencia y la inconsciencia, entre la experiencia de lo real y la percepcin del sueo, un hombre se encuentra, sin saber explicarse cmo, en una Lisboa desierta y trrida al medioda de un ltimo domingo de julio. Sabe que tiene una misin que cumplir - en particular el encuentro con un personaje ilustre y desaparecido que, quiz, como todos los fantasmas, se presentar slo a medianoche -, pero no tiene ni idea de cmo llevarla a cabo.Se entrega as al flujo del azar, y se encuentra frente a un recorrido que lo lleva a revivir el recuerdo de aquel da, a transitar de nuevo por algunas etapas fundamentales de su vida, a tratar de resolver los nudos de su estado alucinatorio.La alucinacin, el viaje y el sueo duran doce horas, durante las cuales se comprimen y se dilatan los tiempos de una vida: pasado y presente se mezclan para explicarse recprocamente, muertos y vivos se encuentran en los mismos lugares, unos lugares que se fijan en una inmovilidad que nada tiene que ver con el tiempo.Un libro maravilloso (Juli Guillamon, Avui), quiz el ms bello que Tabucchi ha escrito hasta la fecha (Mercedes Monmany, Diario 16).
