A dizzying, fast-paced tour of Latin America provides one of the Spanish-speaking world's most outstanding writers with the occasion for an experimental travelogue somewhere between personal diary and critical essay. Lamenting not having more time to get to know each of the 19 countries he visits after winning the Premio Alfaguara, Andres Neuman concludes that world travel consists mostly of 'not seeing'. Turning the fleeting nature of his trip into a creative and critical advantage, he writes a work that is whimsical and fun, poetic and aphoristic.
